Our Team

President, Counselor (Family and Spiritual) and Financial Adviser
Reverend Amselin Ngum

Rev. Amselin Ngum was born and raised in Buea-Cameroon, West of Africa. He attended UPCI-COT and graduated with a bachelor’s degree in theology. He went on to serve as Pastor in Cameroon, and then as a missionary in Morocco. He moved to the United States in 2013 and has been ministering for over 24 years on the gospel field for Jesus Christ. He is currently the founder and lead Pastor of the church, Father’s House Divine Shelter Ministries Inc in Oregon.  

Transitioning from Africa to the United States was full of challenges which he navigated and learned a lot of lessons through the process. Beside preaching and teaching in the capacity of a Pastor, Rev. Amselin is a licensed financial professional and a realtor with Oregon First. He is the founder and visionary of Family Life Alignment. The vision to start Family Life Alignment was born from the realization that immigrants need orientation and help to navigate the US system and to establish themselves in this land full of opportunities. From his personal experience and from interacting with clients as pastor and realtor, he recognizes that some of the mistakes immigrants make can be avoided with the right information, counselling and coaching. He thus believes in empowering immigrants to be better and to succeed as a family unit, in all arenas of life including mental, spiritual and professional.

Rev. Amselin has been married to his lovely wife Dr. Liz Ngum since June 2018. He is a man who loves Jesus, loves studying the Word of God and loves connecting with people and building relationships. He strives to accept everyone for whom they are without judgment and believes a healthy community is medicine for a broken heart and soul.

He enjoys spending time with his family, gardening, hiking and watching movies.
