Albert YS Chu

Lead Pastor

Albert is the lead pastor of the Tapestry.  He is passionate about creating space for people of all backgrounds, age, disability, social strata, and ethnicity to discover Jesus.  Sensing God’s call to plant a multi-racial church in the Lower Mainland, Albert moved to Richmond and planted the Tap back in 2004.

Albert is also the leader of Engage Vancouver an initiative to start new missional activities and church plants in the Lower Mainland.

He holds a M.Div from Regent College as well as an MA in Sociology with a specialization in religion and deviancy from the University of Alberta.

Albert is married to Frieda and is blessed with two lovely daughters.   They love to travel, cycle, eat sushi, and their current favourite backpacking spot they do every year is along the Skyline Divide at Mt. Baker.
