Our prayer is that God through His people would provide funds needed to purchase a downtown campus to serve as a home for the ministries and outreaches of CBI Japan. It is our hope that the gospel of Jesus Christ will penetrate the heart of downtown Nagoya and the hearts of its young people as this new ministry center, in partnership with other ministries in Nagoya, shines brightly as a light to the lost and as encouragement to young Christians.
"Michael Oh spoke at our 2009 Desiring God Conference for Pastors. I love his vision for Japan.
As a Korean this commitment has the Christ-like flavor of reconciliation and risk. I would like for you to know him and, if God leads, support his vision."
Joshua Harris says:
"Being half-Japanese, I have a special burden to see the gospel spread in Japan. Michael's personal story and the history of enmity between Koreans and Japanese makes his missionary zeal all the more compelling."
Mark Rogers from The Gospel Coalition blog says:
"We should pray for Michael Oh and all involved in this ministry. Some may want to consider supporting it, as they are in the process of raising $1.5 million for a campus. There is a desperate need for pastoral training and effective church planting in Japan, and Oh’s ministry has witnessed some encouraging fruit.
We should also pray for other faithful missionaries and pastors in Japan. May God grow his church for the good of that nation and the glory of Christ!"
