FBC WINTER CONFERENCE 2019

The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; 
I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full. - John 10:10

We see brokenness in the world around us, but God desires us to live fully alive, filled with purpose and joy. The world’s ways are broken, but God’s ways are never broken. This conference will inspire, encourage and equip you to live a full and abundant life in Christ.

REV. ALBERT WONG

Pastor Albert Wong serves as the Lead Pastor of City Light Community Church. In 1995, he was ordained by the Christian & Missionary Alliance and has a Master of Divinity from Alliance Theological Seminary along with a Bachelor’s degree in Architecture from Pratt Institute.

Pastor Albert is a testimony of how God can create strength out of brokenness. Coming from a broken family without having the presence of a father figure at home, he pushed forward in life not knowing the fullness of His heavenly Father’s love. Only late in life did he realize how much God has filled in all the gaps, holes and cracks resulting from a dysfunctional immigrant upbringing. Today, he loves being a parent and hopes that he can be a source of hope and inspiration for those who need to see God come through for them.

Pastor Albert and his wife Cindy have 3 grown children and a dog.

WORKSHOPS

There will be 2 sessions of workshops on Saturday morning and afternoon. Choose one workshop per session to attend.

MORNING SESSION (choose one)

  • Finding Your Purpose and Path
    Pastor Lenny (Mandarin 中文 )
    This workshop is about Identity and Purpose, Making a Difference, dealing with internal heart issues to break free from sin and bondage (brokenness) and to live a truly free and happy life (wholeness) as a witness.

  • From Birth On…
    Pastor Albert (English)
    We are called to be on the “offense” rather than “defense” in living out for the kingdom. The Christian family is not just a fortress-like castle but an outpost with a divine purpose. We will cover the 3 seasonal callings of a parent: forthtelling, protect & serve and releasing.

AFTERNOON SESSION (choose one)

  • How to Make Your Marriage Unbreakable
    Pastor Lenny (Mandarin 中文 )
    This workshop is about how the world views marriage as a fairy-tale and expectations of having a perfect marriage. What is a perfect “unbroken” marriage? How do we view the third Person in our relationships? What does it look like for our marriage to be “attractive” to a broken world where over 50% marriages end in divorce? How can our marriages point people to Jesus and the gospel?

  • Discovering Deep Wells
    Pastor Albert (English)
    We will look into the disparity between our calling and how we actually live. A comparative study between an "orphan" versus a beloved son/daughter will be looked at. As a result, we will take a practical look into how to always have enough for any stress or challenges that comes with life.
