Cantonese / English Ministry
The Cantonese / English speaking ministry is our largest ministry. We presently have around 200 adults that attend our “bilingual” worship service and fellowship with us during the week. Fellowships for our Cantonese / English-speaking brothers and sisters range from College and Young Adults to Seniors. We also have various Cantonese / English speaking men and women fellowship groups.
After moving into our own Irvine facility in May 2000, we came to realize that many Mandarin-speaking families live in the immediate neighborhood. In January 2001, we started a Mandarin Ministry with the support of lay brothers and sisters. Currently, we have about 90 adults in our Mandarin Ministry, which conducts worship services and sponsors fellowships in Mandarin.
Agape Christian Worship (ACW) was established in early 2002, led by Assistant Pastor Darryl Fong, to meet the needs for an English-speaking ministry. ACW’s goals are to be a loving community, and live God’s truth in a contemporary and culturally relevant way. Pastor Darryl also oversees our English-speaking adult fellowships that include those that are college students, single, married, and married with children. Presently, we have about 70 adults in our English Ministry.
We began our Youth Worship Service (English) in June, 2005, to better minister to our Junior High and High School Students. This ministry was at first supported by a part-time Youth Worker and many lay brothers and sisters. In November, 2006, Pastor Tim Lum was invited to serve as Youth Assistant Pastor to oversee this ministry, which now includes youth worship service and Junior High and Senior High fellowships. Currently, we have approximately 60 youths.
CBCKidz exists to develop disciples of Christ that are connected leaders through growing in wisdom, stature, and favor with God and man. We offer a full discipleship program from growing in favor with God through Worship, to growing in wisdom through learning God's Word in Sunday School, and to growing in favor with man by practicing loving one another in Fellowship. All these programs are conducted at developmentally appropriate levels from preschool (3 year olds) to 6th graders. Wanting to equip the next generation, we also offer Kidlead Christian Leadership training, Bible Drill, and many seasonal special events. Come and join in the fun and fellowship!
The Music Ministry of Chinese Baptist Church of Central Orange County is to glorify God through music. We believe that the music we sing, as an expression of our faith, is both a gift from and an offering to God. We dedicate the gift of song to lead and inspire worship in the Sunday worship services. Our choirs, worship teams and orchestra present diverse opportunities for members of the congregation to experience and participate in various music programs.
