Ministry Overview

Church Planting (COEN Life), Sapporo City Team Leader


Our three children are all grown, married and have children of their own. All of them are currently living in the USA.


Located in the city of Sapporo, in northern Japan we purpose to multiply communities with a passion for Christ and compassion for people. We call this ministry COEN Life.
COEN Life uses three platforms, a cafe, an English school, and a Bible community to touch people with the love God has lavished on us. We seek to introduce staff, customers, English students and community friends to Jesus, the One who changed our lives.
We are using a business model operating a café and English school because they align with the gifts of with those called to this ministry and also are ways to meet people’s needs, provide open doors to build relationships, give opportunities to show our faith, and provide a self-sustaining way to pay the bills.
