The God of David, Moses, Paul...
Not just the God of famous characters in the Bible, but my God that created and gave his life for me
Who is God, not only what he has done, but who is God
and who am I
Why was I created, what do I live for
what am I heading for
The ones I love and this world
How do I comprehend, how do I relate with them
to let go of occupied life for a moment
and sit next to God, an encounter, an experience
longing to know who my God is, who I am, and who the world is
to stand firm in God, to walk in Him throughout the rest of your days

After the 3-month lecture phase, we enter the outreach phase. Outreach is to apply what the students have learned and experienced as they will evangelize and serve community churches in designated regions and countries.
Christianity came to Japan early as from 1549, but Christianity was also persecuted for more than 200 years that led to many Christian martyrs. The outreach in Japan will be hosted in local Japanese churches and serving the needs of the churches.
Koreans and Japanese students will be united to go to East Asian countries that Japan has dominated during World War II.
These are nations with regions that have never heard of the Gospel, church communities that hold underground services due to persecution and places that are continually struggling due to the aftermath of war. As we live and serve with the local Christians, the outreach will encourage students to learn about the heart of God and challenge students on living a life following Christ.

Diverse people of different nations and backgrounds gathered to live as a family.
Though it may not always be an easy path, as we embrace and commit to each other, we come to experience the love and grace of God and the significance of the body of Christ.
It is our aspiration, that we are transformed and polished to live as followers of Christ through this path.
Life changes and training take place at this time.
