PASTOR HUGO CHENG was born in Queens, New York but grew up in Taipei, Taiwan. He came to faith in Jesus Christ during his senior year in college, while he was attending Carnegie Mellon University obtaining a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Graphic Design. He first sensed the Lord’s call for him to serve in full-time Christian ministry after coming to Christ for two months, during the Chinese Missions Convention (CMC) in 1989.
He worked in the field of computer graphics and helped his professors to start a human-computer interaction design firm. While working, he and his wife served as the leader of the senior-high youth group, the college and young adult fellowship groups. After working for seven years, Pastor Hugo left his job and attended Columbia Biblical Seminary (Now called Columbia International University, or CIU) to obtain a Master of Divinity degree. While at CIU, God used Hugo and his wife to plant a church among the factory workers in a Taiwanese plastic factory in Florence, SC.
In 1999, God called him to become the pastor of the Pittsburgh Chinese Church Oakland (PCCO), reaching and making disciples from among the overseas Chinese university students and scholars, as well as other international students. In 2004, an English-speak congregation called Oakland International Fellowship (OIF) was started by the PCCO church leadership and him, with a vision to build a congregation that is made up of people from all nations and ethnicities in the university area. Today they have students from over 18 nations represented in OIF.
In 2016, God called Pastor Hugo Cheng to become the senior pastor of our church (CBCM). He believes that CBCM has been given many resources from God and is poised to make an even greater impact for God’s Kingdom locally and globally. With the teamwork from the staff, pastors, elders, and all the members, he hopes to lead CBCM to be an effective center and resource for prayer, discipleship, leadership training, evangelism, church planting, missions, and fellowship life.
