    We will consider the concept of reaching Japanese for Christ an appropriate way within the Japanese cultural milieu. We will also look at how to do this practically within the unique setting of Japanese living in North America. Presentations will be made by Daniel Kikawa, Ben Kagiwada and others.


    Daniel Kikawa has been researching cross-cultural issues for over 20 years. He has taught thousands of missionaries on every continent. He also serves as president of Aloha Ke Akua Ministries which produced the DVD, “Fingerprints of God.”

    Kagiwada, Tetsuo Ben is currently pastoring at South Bay Japanese Christian Fellowship. At the age of 24 he became a pastor and ministered to churches in Osaka, Tochigi, Orange County, Ibaraki and Los Angeles. During his ministry in Ibaraki he came to realize the indispensable importance of knowing Buddhism and Shintoism and so started to learn more about these religions. Further, he is currently exploring ways for Christianity to overcome its exclusion from Japanese culture.
