In 2011, Japan was devastated by an earthquake and tsunami. Jesse & Gypsi Town went to Japan to participate in relief efforts. Jesse grew up in Japan, speaks the language and understands the culture.
Once the relief work was completed, Jesse & Gypsi decided to stay on in Japan – to help new believers and start a new church. Gypsi was well-known to ICCM, so we brought her on as a full-time employee to facilitate her missionary work with the Japanese and among the unreached. Jesse & Gypsi work primarily in Ome (part of Tokyo), with occasional outreaches in Kobuchizawa, Yamanashi Ken and Nojiri, Nagano-Kan.
The goals of ICCM’s Japan program are:
- To enable the Christian Church to effectively apply the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
- To address dysfunctional marriages, poor parenting and broken relationships in modern-day Japan.
- To teach at retreats, seminars, conferences and other group meetings.
- To support church planting and church growth activities.
- To disciple and develop close relationships through one-on-one mentoring.
