Pastor Frank Cho
Worship Pastor

Frank has been with New Community since the spring of 2008 and oversees Worship & Community. From the moment that visitors, friends, and members enter through our doors on a Sunday morning, it's his desire that people connect with God on every level of worship. He sees that each person has a distinct role when the church gathers. Because we come into church as participants, and not as spectators, he hopes that we'd experience God in a relevant way as we share our lives together during Sunday Service. Frank has been married to his wife, Linda, since April 2004. They have two children, Ethan and Jayden. It's their family's sincere desire to enjoy the grace of God, and share it with the lost and broken of this world.
