Pastor Angelo and Analiza Austria

Pastor Angelo

Tell us a little bit about your family, your ministry life (school and positions held) and what you like best about ministry.

I am married to Analiza and we had been blessed with 3 children, Nathan, Faith and Christine. All of them are involved with music at the church. Analiza is the worship pastor, Nathan sings and plays the guitar, Faith sings and plays the piano and Christine plays the drums. Out of my obedience to God, I am compelled to fight for injustice and give people hope. Currently, I am working on my MDiv degree at Multnomah University.

What Scripture has recently impacted your life?

My favorite Bible passage comes from John 10:10. Jesus said, “I have come to give you life and life abundantly.” I have realized that Jesus came to give me His life that is victorious, powerful, freedom, miracles, joy, righteousness, obedience, peace, strength, authority and He wanted me to have that kind of life to overflowing.

What two books are you currently reading or have read recently? What book or book beside the Bible would you recommend every Christian read?

Because of school, all I’m reading right now are from my classes and I wouldn’t recommend my books unless you are interested on learning Greek. :-) Hahaha

What is your favorite hobby?

Definitely golf, basketball (only if I’m playing with a bunch of old guys) and riding my mountain bike.

What is your favorite restaurant?

  • Stone House Cafe
  • Rick Shaw Sushi (now Sushi One)
  • Crawfish Asian Cuisine
  • Boiling Crab



Pastor Analiza

Tell us a little bit about your family, your ministry life (school and positions held) and what you like best about ministry.

I have three wonderful kids, Nathan, Faith, and Christine. They are very gifted in music, and I am very proud to say that they’re serving God in that capacity. My husband is Pastor Angelo, he is a man of God, a loving and caring husband, and a wonderful Father. My life in the ministry is full of harmony and rhythm, I get to enjoy the beauty of His creation of music. I serve as a Worship Pastor, and what I like about it is I get to lead His people and with the entire worship team into His divine presence through music. I am blessed to be part of the NLCC’s Music Team.

What Scripture has recently impacted your life?

2 Corinthians 12:9, “But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me.

Galatians 2:20, “I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.

What two books are you currently reading or have read recently? What book or book beside the Bible would you recommend every Christian read?

I am currently reading “How To Worship The King by Zack Neese, and I recently read “The Way Of The Shepherd by Dr. Kevin Leman and William Pentak. Part of my daily devotions are “The Secrets of the Secret Place by Bob Sorge and The Complete Personalized Promise Bible on Health & Healing by James Riddle. I recommend these books.

What is your favorite hobby?

I always have to stop and think when people ask me “What is your hobby?” Sadly, I don’t have any idea, I just do variety of things during my spare time.

What is your favorite restaurant?

Technically, wherever there’s fresh baked bread on the menu...oops I just uncovered my weakness LOL
