OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERARev. Christine Ng – Senior Minister

Rev. Ng was called to Central Congregational Church in 2008. Prior to coming to Dallas, she was Associate Pastor of Coral Isles Church, UCC in Tavernier, Florida in the Florida Keys.

Raised in South Florida, Rev. Ng attended Swarthmore College in Pennsylvania, graduating in 1983 with a B.A. in Humanities, with a major in English and a minor in Art History. She worked for the Bass Museum of Art on Miami Beach before returning to school to study law at Florida State University Law School. She practiced appellate law for 20 years, but discerned a call to God’s ministry. So she went back to school again to receive her Masters of Divinity from Florida Center for Theological Studies in Miami.

Rev. Ng has a Certificate in Spiritual Direction from Stillpoint Center for Christian Spirituality. She has also studied and taught Taoist Tai Chi for health and meditation for more than 25 years.

Christine Ng has been married to Stephen Ng since 1987. They have one daughter, Jennifer, who graduated from Booker T. Washington School of the Performing and Visual Arts and is attending New College of Florida.
