Ngo Ordained In Portland Vietnamese Church

Cuong Duy Ngo was ordained on Sabbath, March 4. The service was held at the Portland Vietnamese Church where Ngo serves with the support of his wife, Nga.

Ngo came to the U.S. at 19 looking to follow his own path, but found only darkness. Ngo shares, “I was able to see the light of Christ in my time of darkness. Only when you walk in the light will you know what you are living for.”

Although he was a successful graphic designer, Ngo left his job and enrolled as a theology student at Walla Walla College in 1994. After graduating from the Seventh-day Adventist Theological Seminary at Andrews University, Ngo began pastoring the Portland Vietnamese Church in 2002.

Ngo’s service has not gone unnoticed. “We have rejoiced in seeing his ministry progress,” says Don Livesay, Oregon Conference president. And “we have had the privilege of witnessing how the Holy Spirit has worked in his heart,” adds Al Reimche, Oregon Conference vice president for administration.
