Vision & Ministry Focus:
We are serving in cooperative ministry with the Kurume Bible Church while carrying on various
outreaches in our home and community. Our hope is that we will be an encouragement to this
church and this will, in turn, lead to their growth and impact for Christ, as well as encourage
shared vision, help and the growth of Christ’s body in our area.
Kurume Bible Church is a small, established church that is seeking to grow as it reaches out to
the Japanese in their neighborhood. We cooperate with them by teaching English to kids and
reaching out to their families through Christmas, Easter, and summer events, including Mother’s
Tea times and English Cafes.
In addition, we are reaching out to our own neighborhood through evangelism, children’s
English Classes and Adult English Bible studies.
