The pastor should be gifted to help the church share the good news of salvation in Jesus Christ, especially to Japanese, Japanese American, and those who are interested in Japan.

The pastor should be able to lead the church's small group ministry to help the fellowship of the church and to disciple the next generation of believers as followers of Jesus Christ.

We prefer candidates who have working permissions in the US.
