Pfeil, Jon & Sarah

Serving in Japan | Acct # 16039


Jon and Sarah both came to faith in Christian homes in the Midwest. After graduating with a degree in chemical engineering, Jon was first led to serve with MTW in Japan from 1999–2001. Sarah attended nursing school and developed a heart for missions through short-term mission trips to Mexico. Jon is an ordained elder in the Presbyterian Church in America (PCA).


In spite of religious freedom and the world’s third largest economy, Japan is one of the least reached countries in the world—with only 0.4 percent professing Christianity. Though there are many cultural and spiritual obstacles, lives are being engaged through new churches and transformed by the power of the gospel in community.

The Pfeils followed a call to move to Japan as a family in 2006. After language school, they served primarily in a college ministry role supporting local church-planting works in the Chiba city area. In 2011, the Pfeils were invited by Japanese pastor Rev. Seima Aoyagi to move to city center Tokyo to help him plant a new church in the fast growing Tokyo waterfront area. This church, Grace Harbor Church Tokyo, is the second in a growing Tokyo city center church-planting network.
