Field of work
Church work and organisation

Personal motivation
In 2015 we took charge of the church in Kibogaoka from a pioneer missionary. Small churches in rural Japan have a difficult time developing numerically strong enough to financially support their own pastor. Our motivation for this work is for years of difficult missionary work not to go down the drain, but for the core of the church, individual church members to grow into a mature faith. We need pillars within discipleship for the future! In addition, we continue inviting people, we evangelize, try to get in touch with people and in doing so we like to use creative means in the fields of art and culture.
