Edwards, Jeff

Serving in Japan | Acct # 12167


Although it has a land mass only slightly smaller than the state of California, Japan is home to 127 million people. Of these, fewer than 0.5 percent are Christians and more than 100 million Japanese have yet to hear the gospel of Christ, making Japan one of the largest unreached people groups in the world.

Jeff’s first exposure to Japan came in 1988 as a teacher in a rural Japanese junior high school. Then, after finishing a master’s degree in English, he returned to Japan to teach in a Japanese university. During these years of living and working with the Japanese people the Lord gave him a burden to see this great nation come to know Christ’s love for them. To this end Jeff studied at Covenant Theological Seminary where he obtained his M.Div. in 2012.

Jeff plans to return to Japan as an ordained minister in the PCA. He will serve with Genesis International College, a new two-year Christian college in Osaka (Japan’s second largest city), with a vision to reach the young generation of Japan with the love of Christ. He will serve as a church-planting associate and a professor at the college.
