Isabella Guo

English Congregation Elder

Elder Isabella was born in Hong Kong and came to the States for her college education. Coming to NCFC in 1993 was ordained by God. She and her then-fiancé, Alex, were supposed to accompany her friend to visit NCFC. However, her friend never showed up. After meeting a very warm and welcoming Head Greeter, she and Alex decided to stay for Sunday service. It was an unforgettable day: she still remembers that the sermon was titled “Walk by Faith, Not by Sight”. Immediately after service, everyone was treated to a delicious bulgogi lunch box, which was her first-ever Korean meal. Unbeknownst to her, that extraordinary day was NCFC’s third anniversary. And, as the saying goes, “the rest is history”.

NCFC is where Elder Isabella married Elder Alex in its warehouse building. It is also where their three sons (Aaron, Nathan, and Matthew) grew up and were baptized. During her time at NCFC, Elder Isabella has served in different ministries, including Greeters, Newcomers, Sunday School, Alpha, Alpha Marriage, Oikos, and currently the Intercessory Prayer Ministry, where her heart’s desire is to raise up God’s joyful intercessors to advance His Kingdom!
