Friends & Family,
I wanted to take a minute to tell you about an exciting trip that I’ll be taking in May.
As most of you know, I’m now serving at Resonate Church in Nashville, TN as the Director of Equipping and Communication. Magen and I absolutely love being part of the Resonate family and we truly feel like we’re “home.”
One of the things we’re especially excited about this year at Resonate is the chance to support an indigenous church planter in Tokyo named Yoshiko Noguchi. Yoshi is connected to the Soma Family of Churches (wearesoma.com), a family of churches to which we are also a member. As a result. we have great theological and methodological alignment with Yoshi, we trust him fully, and we’re excited to see how the Spirit of God uses him in Tokyo.
Tokyo has around 35 million people, and the estimated percentage of evangelical christians is only about half of one percent. The gospel desperately needs to be planted in Tokyo.
Myself, Shane England (the pastor of Resonate), and a few other pastors from around the country, are headed to Tokyo in May to meet with Yoshi and other church planters in Japan. We’re anxious to get a better idea of the gospel work taking place there and to plan and pray about further work in this region of the world.
This is where you come in. I need your help. I personally need to raise $3700 by May 20th (when I leave) in order to make this trip a reality. I’m asking you to prayerfully consider supporting my trip as I take this journey overseas. I’m so excited! Somehow in all my 34 years I haven’t left America until now, and I’m anxious to better obey the Great Commission by going to all nations.
If you decide to give, all gifts are tax deductible.
Thanks so much for your support!
