Pastor Michael Liang
Pastor Mike joined the Chinese Baptist Church of Central Orange County (CBCCOC) in July of 2021 as the Children’s Assistant Pastor. He was born in Minneapolis, MN, lived in many Midwest cities, and graduated from Moody Theological Seminary with a Master's Degree in Biblical Studies.
He has served 15+ years as a Children's & Youth Pastor at Pittsburgh Chinese Church Oakland, Preacher at the Northwest Suburban Chinese Christian Church, and Youth Director at the Living Water Evangelical Church.
His vision and belief are that God has given parents the primary responsibility to nurture their children in the Christian faith. This is both a wonderful opportunity and important responsibility. He desires to come alongside the parents to support and equip their children in laying a firm foundation of faith, hope, and love in Jesus Christ.
His mission is to help provide a deeper faith in the Children not only to just accept Christ into their heart, soul, and mind as their Savior, but as their Lord. Secondly, he wants children/youth to love and obey God’s Word (not out of legality or pleasing parents, but worship, pleasing God).
Pastor Mike is married to his beautiful wife Jeanne and has a lovely young daughter Madeleine.

Auntie Ruby was born and raised in Hong Kong. She became a Christian in her high school year! Since then, she was growing in faith in the Bethlehem Church of Hope Mission and serving actively in the youth ministry. While she was in her post-graduate study in Melbourne, Australia, God has impressed in her heart through Romans 10:15 that "How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!" She prayed to God to devote her life to serve HIM full time as a minister of His Gospel in 1992. Finally in 1998, God opened door for her to go to Talbot School of Theology to pursue her M. Divinity (majoring in Evangelism & Discipleship). She graduated in 2001 and started serving as the full time English minister in 2002 in Irvine First Chinese Baptist Church. After becoming a wife and a mother, she switched to be the Children Minister (part-time) in 2005 till January 2018.
As a children minister, she devotes to minister to the children workers as well as the children parents in order to co-work as a team to help the children to know and love Christ and to be His faithful followers. Her motto is "All by His Grace and All for this Glory!" She loves to eat and share life stories with families & friends, and enjoys swimming, biking, traveling and other outdoor activities!
