Chervang Kong (May 1, 1950) is a Full Gospel Evangelist, a prominent evangelical Christian figure, and an ordained minister who became well known in the Hmong community around the world in the early 1980s and 1990s within the Hmong community. He is known to be the first Hmong person to be born again and filled with the Holy Spirit in the history of the Hmong people. Today, Reverend Chervang Kong Vang is widely known as a Full Gospel Evangelist who has made a faith evangelistic movement across the United States and overseas in the Hmong community. He is the founder of the United Christians Liberty Evangelical (UCLE) Church in the United States and has established many churches throughout the U.S. and abroad. He is also invented an effective Hmong writing system known as the Nyiakeng Puachue Hmong scripts that are taught and used in various countries and where there is a large Hmong population. This script has been used by members of the United Christians Liberty Evangelical church in America for more than 25 years, in printed material and videos. It is reported to have some use in Laos, Thailand, Vietnam, France, and Australia.
Early life[edit | edit source]
Nyiakeng Puachue Hmong[edit | edit source]
The Nyiakeng Puachue Hmong script (RPA: Ntawv Nyiajkeeb Puajtxwm Hmoob ‘Genesis Complete Hmong script’; Ntawv: ‘letter’, Nyiajkeeb: ‘genesis’, Puajtxwm: ‘complete’, Hmoob: ‘Hmong’) is used for writing the White Hmong and Green Hmong languages. It has also been called Ntawv Txawjvaag ‘The Chervang script’, named after its inventor, the Reverend Chervang Kong, who devised it in the 1980s for use within his church. This script has been used by members of the United Christians Liberty Evangelical church in America for more than 25 years, in printed material and videos. It is reported to have some use in Laos, Thailand, Vietnam, France, and Australia. The script is also called Hmong Kong Hmong (RPA: Ntawv Hmoob Koob Hmoov, “Hmong Blessing script”), and Pa Dao Hmong (RPA: Ntawv Paj Ntaub Hmong, “flower-cloth Hmong script”). Another unrelated Flower Hmong script devised in 1959 is also called Paj Ntaub. Several of the consonant letters appear to have been derived from the shapes of Hebrew characters.

Vang has authored his own autobiography book. He has set to write a few other books concerning Living the Divine Principles of God and a personal account of Lao History during his years living in Laos before the Laotian Civil War/Secret War in Laos.
