(Updated 10/2013) Hi, my name is Joey Zorina. Before I met Jesus, I spent my life as a guitar player, a studio musician, and worked as Rock Street Journal correspondent. My life was in a mess until God’s grace changed my life completely. I graduated from a very small training school called- Harvest Bible Training Centre in India. After I came to Japan in 2004 I studied at Tokyo Christian University and completed the Asian Christian Theological Studies program. I am currently working as part-time writing staff for Living Life (A Journal of Reflection and Spiritual Formation for Duranno International Ministry) published in English, Chinese, Korean and Japanese. I also had the privilege of starting and leading a music outreach to Jazz musicians, their friends and their families about two years ago, which has been well-received by God’s grace. The Bridge is conducted only once every 3 months, which gives us time for following up on our people on a personal level.
My wife, Yisel, is from Uruguay in South America. She graduated from Heritage Bible College & Seminary (2006), Ontario, Canada. She taught kindergarten at International Christian Academy of Nagoya for 5 years before we moved to Kawasaki. She is currently working at an international school in Tokyo. This is our 10th and 8th year, respectively, and we hope God will give us many more years of fruitful service among the Japanese for whom Christ died and rose again.
By God’s grace we are also currently leading a missional community in our home, and are working with a another missional community in Fuchu led by a Japanese pastor/church planter. We hope to launch our first worship gathering after we have launched 2 more missional communities. More leaders and missionaries are now praying and getting ready to join us in helping lead missional communities as a primary means of making disciples who will make other disciples.
Both churches in our home countries (i.e India and Uruguay) are not yet capable of supporting us financially, though we are sent out by our home Church prayerfully. So we are dependent on the generosity of individuals and Churches across the globe for our ministry expenses. We have seen God’s providence in remarkable ways, even from those who have never met us and this has been a testimony of God’s faithfulness to His call.
Please pray for and with us. If you feel led by the Spirit, at anytime, to support The Bridge music outreach please follow the link below.
