We, the staff of UP, would like to introduce ourselves so that when you come to worship with us, you'll already know a few friendly faces. It's our pleasure to serve those who worship with us. We look forward to meeting you!


Rev. Dr. Soon Chung


Pastor Soon has been the senior pastor at UPC since its inception. He completed his undergraduate studies in Political Science at UCLA, then went on to study at Princeton Theological Seminary, and received his doctorate from Gordon-Conwell Seminary. In his spare time, Pastor Soon enjoys playing with his four children, spending time with his wife, and playing an occasional game of basketball.

Rev. Yvonne Chang


Associate Pastor Yvonne Chang got her B.A. in Religious Studies at the University of Virginia (Go Cavaliers!) and then went on to get her M.Div. at Princeton Seminary. At UPC she leads the undergrad ministries. She enjoys having a good conversation over a good cup of coffee. Watch out… when she lets her guard down, her corny sense of humor tends to emerge.


Woonghee Lee


Woonghee Lee was born and raised in Korea, and accepted Jesus as his Lord and Savior in 2006. He came to UCLA for graduate school that same year and received his M.Arch degree in 2009. During his studies he met his wife, Yumi, and they've been married since 2012! Woonghee enjoys building his relationship with God through prayer, meditation and reading the Bible. He and his wife are endeavoring to implement God’s vision given to their family and enjoy conversation, play, and traveling together.

Byungjoo Lee


Byungjoo Lee was baptized at UPC in 2002 and became an elder of UPC in 2015. He got his B.S. in Physics at Seoul National University and got his LL.M. at Harvard Law School. He has been a practicing lawyer for 20 years, endeavoring to integrate the Christian Faith with the reality and toughness of the working life. He started to attend church "only" to marry his wife: a true romance leading a poor, atheistic guy to the true life in Jesus Christ.
