My name is Francis Wong. I have been married to Esther and we have three children, Stephanie,
Benjamin and Priscilla.
I grew up in a traditional Chinese family worshiping ancestors. I came to know the Lord when I was 15 through a friend at school. I sensed God's calling into full-time ministry while studying in Canada. By His grace, I have been serving the Lord since I graduated from seminary in 1982.
My passion is to see people come to know the Lord and be equipped for service through discipleship training.
I enjoy swimming, guitar playing, browsing through books in the library or the book store. During my days off, my favourite thing to do is to spend time with my wife and family. Something most people don't know about me is that I was a scout for many years and I enjoy outdoor activities, such as hiking, camping.

Rev. Joshua Wang (Renewal Church)
My name is Joshua, I am married to my beautiful wife Shelly who has been serving alongside me in youth ministry since 2006. We are proud parents of two wonderful children. I am currently serving as a Pastoral staff with an emphasis on the youth ministry and C&Y core group liaison on the Elders Board. My desire at CCCO is to communicate the love and truth of Christ to our next generation and witnessing the Holy Spirit at work. Our caring adult volunteers help teach/mentor youth so their faith is biblically rooted so they would dynamically influence the culture and people around them. I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Theology in 2006 and have started working towards a Master of Arts in Counseling and Spirituality. We desire to help and equip parents because the only thing as hard as being an teenager is parenting them! We've been asked to share interesting information that not many people may know, so... I love riding motorcycles but Shelly won't let me get one ;), I've been in a cage with a tiger and dived in a mud cave. I enjoy music, adventure, playing ball and ice hockey, reading, studying, taking care of plants, learning new things everyday and laughing!

In my spare time, I am also currently working towards my graduate-level theological degree. My passion is to see people come to faith in Christ, and then continue to grow through discipleship. I love biblical truth, especially when it leads to practical application and deep worship. Some of my hobbies include biking, basketball and browsing bookstores.
