A Community Woven in Faith

Mae-Ling Yen

Community Life Director

Mae is the Director of Community Life at the Tapestry. One of the most beautiful things about the Tapestry is the wonderful sense of community that it has, and nothing brings Mae greater joy than connecting people with the heart and community of the church. Mae and her husband Russ (one of the best greeters at the church) are both passionate about connecting with newcomers and weaving them in to the tapestry of church life.

In her late teens, Mae moved from Malaysia to start a new life in Canada. In a land full of opportunity, she found new opportunities and also found her loving husband of 29 years, Russ. They now have two wonderful children, Sheryl and Colin and a son-in-law, Eric.


Mae loves spending time with God through walking, taking the time to retreat, reflect and pray. She also looks forward to Sunday evenings with her family when they get the time to share a meal together, catch up on the happenings of the week and pray together. She also loves annual trips to Hawaii, tea time with her friends and hanging out with her Goddaughter, grandniece and nephew.
