Many of us in the Western world are prone to thinking about faith as a race that is run individually, but God has always intended for us to run it with others, sometimes alongside each other and at other times as a relay. When Paul and Melissa Ewing and Shan Reed first planted Komyo Christian Church in 2008, they wanted a Japanese national to be the pastor. Paul said, “The best paradigm for planting a church here in Japan is for a Japanese church planter and a missionary to work together.”

More than ten years later, while the church was in the process of transitioning from a church plant to an established church within the Japan Baptist Conference, God led Pastor Hiroyuki Saijo to serve as pulpit relief at Komyo while Paul was recovering from surgery. Near the end of that long transition from a church plant, and through a series of Spirit-led events, Paul was able to reconnect with Pastor Saijo and invite him to apply for the role of lead pastor. Pastor Saijo officially became the new lead pastor of Komyo Christian Church in March 2020, just one month after the church officially joined the Japan Baptist Conference.

As Paul continues the long process of passing the baton to Pastor Saijo, we are confident God remains at work at Komyo, just as he has since before they began meeting together. Paul said, “We are elated that Pastor Saijo is the one that God brought to us. It seems to us that he truly is the one God intends to carry this church forward.” When you give to the Global Missions Fund, you are joining with Paul, Pastor Saijo, and numerous other NAB international partnerships worldwide in this relay race of faith. Thank you for choosing to contribute to the gospel work taking place through the NAB in Japan and around the globe.
