Bocanegra, Mark & Megumi

Serving in Japan | Acct # 10858


Mark and Megumi met in Chiba, Japan, at Oyumino Christ Church (OCC), both realizing that they had hearts to serve Japan. Megumi grew up in a Christian home and developed a heart for youth. Mark, a Filipino graduate of Stanford, spent 10 years of his childhood in Tokyo. He worked for Rakuten, Japan's largest internet mall, to confirm his call to Japan before seminary. After marrying, Mark completed his M.Div. at Westminster Seminary California and was ordained as a PCA teaching elder in 2017. From 2017–2019, Mark served at OCC as one of their pastors. Mark and Megumi now have three daughters.

In 2019, MTW and OCC sent the Bocanegras to lead an MTW team with the hope to help plant a new congregation and grow the existing congregation of Kaihin Makuhari Grace Church (KMGC). KMGC was planted in 1999 and now is the only church in a dense neighborhood of about 23,000 people. This neighborhood is projected to grow to 35,000 and is very close to a university and various high schools. With Tokyo church density averaging about 15,000 people per church, this is an extremely needy and strategic place—even for the second largest unreached people group.
