While attending dental school, Christopher Yuan began living promiscuously as a gay man and experimenting with illicit drugs. Within a few years, he was expelled from dental school, imprisoned for drug dealing, and discovered that he was HIV positive.
But God has turned his living nightmare into an exciting and inspiring story of redemption, grace, and transformation. Christopher has an understanding heart for and a desire to minister to those working through issues of sexuality and to those living with HIV/AIDS.
Christopher graduated from Moody Bible Institute in 2005 and Wheaton College Graduate School in 2007 with a Master of Arts in Biblical Exegesis and is currently pursuing a doctorate of ministry at Bethel Seminary. He now teaches at Moody while continuing his speaking ministry, which has reached four continents around the world.
His story is also recorded in a book that he co-authored with his mother – Out of the Far Country: A Gay Son’s Journey to God, A Broken Mother’s Search for Hope (Waterbrook Multnomah a division of Random House). You can find more information at www.christopheryuan.com.
