In January of 2010, a team of church planters launched Mustard Seed Christian Church in the upstairs of a small sports bar in the center of Nagoya, Japan. That 1st Sunday thirty-seven people attended and the church has slowly been growing ever since. Over the past two years, Mustard Seed Christian Church has baptized new believers and raised up a small group of committed Christians that regularly attend and volunteer with the church. Members help weekly with the worship service and have been involved in mid-week Bible studies as well as service projects with the city’s homeless and in trips to aid those affected by the 2011 Tohoku earthquake and tsunami. God is growing the church both in numbers and in depth of discipleship! The future of Mustard Seed Christian Church in Nagoya is bright, but there is still a major need for continued evangelism, ongoing discipleship and leadership training in a place where only 1% of around 10 million residents are Christians.

Noi and Doug live in the Joplin area and are part-time missionaries in Noi's home country of Laos. They have been traveling back and forth between the States and Laos due to persecution for sharing the Gospel. Laos is in the top 10 countries in the world of the most unreached peoples with over 140 different tribes that don't know the Gospel and only 3% of the population is Christian. Next Gen Asia is dedicated to empowering young leaders in Laos through discipleship, education, and vocational training. They are in the process of building a discipleship training facility for the poor, marginalized, and impoverished people to be able to provide healing through sharing the Gospel, providing education, nutritional meals, and safe housing, and vocational training.
