Radical Love in Japan

Radical Love in Japan

. 1 min read

Most students—whether Muslim, Christian, Buddhist or Hindu—come bearing the faith of their families only to discover the predominant secularism of many of their Japanese neighbors in a nation where less than two percent of the population are Christians.

For United Methodist missionaries Jonathan and Satomi McCurley, sharing the Good News of Jesus Christ in such a diverse community is about communicating a presence of radical love.

Born and raised in Okinawa, Satomi serves as the church and community ministries coordinator for Asian Rural Institute (ARI) while also supporting children and foster parents in the local area. As youth chaplain for the Tochigi District of the United Church of Christ in Japan, Jonathan works as a chaplain with ARI and local churches, including leading Bible studies and a Gospel choir and serving as the associate pastor for the local Nasushiobara Church.

Share the radical love of Jesus Christ with individuals, families and communities around the world.
