Tsuchizaki Gloria Chapel - A Dangerous Church

There's no doubt that David (my translator) and I were very blessed by spending a week with the brothers and sisters of Gloria Chapel. We found a church family that loves each other, loves God with enthusiasm, and is led by a great man of God (Matsuyama-Sensei) who filled our time with laughter, encouragement, and a vision for Japan. Be sure to pay them a visit when you are in or near Akita. They filled a room with a great group of servant leaders both young and old.
They have a Gospel Choir program for both children and adults. Their services are a good blend of contemporary and traditional music. The Sr. Pastor is filled with enthusiasm, good humor, and a deep love for God and for Japan. I was especially impressed with his prayerful heart and great vision for revival in his country. He and his family have patiently labored, loved, and endured through every season. Their church facility is one block from the Tsuchizaki station (a 10 minute train ride from town). They will definitely be a church that makes an impact for the Kingdom...that makes them dangerous. Special thanks to Akiko and Tamiko whose risk-taking faith made this conference possible! We'll see you again soon!
