CCCO is an independent, bible-believing, evangelical church.
The church is composed of three congregations, the English, Cantonese, and Mandarin congregations, that worship and fellowship in the three languages.
The purpose of the church as a whole is to glorify God and serve mankind.
We hope you will consider making the Chinese Christian Church of Ottawa your spiritual home. If you are not a Christian and are interested in the Christian faith, we welcome you and any questions you might have.

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.

Rev. Jin Chong
My name is Jin Chong and I have the privilege of serving as the English Congregation pastor for CCCO. It is my prayer that Jesus is magnified and his grace brings genuine transformation in our church family and ministry. I grew up in Philadelphia, PA, and I studied at Westminster Theological Seminary. Su Jin and I married and have served in different ministries from the start of our marriage. After serving as short-term missionaries to the Cherokee and then being called as a pastor in the US, my family moved to Edmonton where I served with a church plant for over nine years.
Now, our family calls Ottawa 'home'. My passion is to nurture individuals to grow in faith through discipleship. My lovely wife and I have two daughters, Phoebe and Chloe. It is my prayer that you will call CCCO your church family and help serve our Lord Jesus together in spreading the gospel to Ottawa and beyond.

I love biblical truth, especially when it leads to practical application and deep worship. Some of my hobbies include biking, basketball and browsing bookstores.
