How long I've been at BBC and what I do: I joined the BBC team in October 2012. I serve as the Mission pastor - overseeing both local and global outreach and engagement.
A couple of things you wouldn't know about me: I have climbed the Japan Alps numerous times. I speak Japanese and Tagalog. I used to be a "pool shark".
A bit about my family: I have an amazing friend and partner in my wife, Hanako. She is a wonderful gift from God - without her I wouldn't be who I am today. God has blessed us two wonderful children, Caleb Tomoki and Jasmine Naomi. We enjoy each other through a crazy game of charades, some intense karaoke, or an impromptu worship time at home.
Favourite things to do to relax: Kick back and watch a good movie with my wife at the theater or at home. Experience God's Power while enjoying the view at the summit after a hard day's climb.
Passage of Scripture I am drawn to: "Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely, I am with you always, to the very end of the age." Matthew 28:19-20 I believe that the Church must constantly be focused on this command in order to make it the end-result of every ministry it has.
Hopes and dreams for BBC: That we would be a family in which each member realizes, accepts, and utilizes their gifts and calling to expand Jesus' Kingdom here on earth through all aspects of their everyday lives.
