Fong also served as the senior pastor of the Evergreen Baptist Church of Los Angeles, where he pioneered several cutting edge ministries, not the least of which was to extend the church’s hospitality to Asian American Pacific Islander Christians who identify as LGBTQ. He retired in July 2017 from pastoring, but continues to consult with pastors and Christian organizations that are exploring the embracing of LGBTQ persons, too.
