John and Dawn Fain, South Asia and Mainland South-East Asia

In our Regional Leader role, we pray, we encourage, we counsel, we bless, we disciple, we mentor, we teach, we cheer, we cast vision, we serve, we lead … in some ways, you might best understand our role if you think of the things your pastor does. The biggest difference is that we do this for nearly 300 adults and their children scattered over South and Southeast Asia. That means most of our job is done through email, skype, phones, and travel to visit our people in the places where they serve.

We come alongside leaders and their families to help teams thrive so that they in turn have the opportunities to share Christ among Muslim, Hindu, and Buddhist peoples and see His church established among the peoples of this region.

Debbie Richards, Japan

In 1995, Debbie went to Chiba, Japan short-term with the MTW IMPACT program and ministered for three years with the Tokyo/Chiba church-planting team through its English Outreach program. Impressed by the tremendous spiritual need of the Japanese people, Debbie returned to Chiba in 2001 for long-term missionary service with MTW. In addition to teaching English classes, her ministry activities include serving as pianist for two of the church plants and participating in the music ministry (church choir) at Honda Chapel.

The spread of the gospel in Japan faces many obstacles, and the Japanese response is typically slow. However, the Tokyo/Chiba team is encouraged by every person who turns to Christ and by the spiritual growth among believers. In reliance upon God, the team is praying for and striving toward the goal of seeing a church-planting movement take hold in the country of Japan.

Chris and Marie Stevanus, Thailand

PIONEERS is a well established and well respected mission organization whose priority is church planting among unreached people groups. We are grateful for the leadership, accountability, and community that they offer us as we move to join them in what God is doing in Thailand. Pioneers does not yet have a team in northern Thailand focused on anti-human trafficking so we will be starting our own. For now our team will partner with various local ministries in order to learn from their experience in planting churches in Thailand, as well as impacting the reality of sex trafficking
