About me

I grew up in Japan. And yes, I do speak Japanese. (I don't read quite as well due to having attended mostly international school). I went to college and seminary in Grand Rapids, MI, and now serve as a pastor at a young church in New York City called City Grace.  I'm ordained in the Christian Reformed Church of North America as a minister of the word and sacrament. I enjoy cycling, reading and writing and networking with others who are involved in church planting and urban ministry. 

The purpose of this site is to let you have a glimpse of my life and interests, and also a place for me to share what I've been learning and reflecting on.  Nothing helps making thoughts concrete than to try to put them into words.
