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.
