Carter, Michael & Cathalain

Serving in Japan | Acct # 11209


While Michael served as an intern in Chiba, Japan, God revealed to him the need for the gospel in this nation where many have never heard the message before. His heart for the Japanese led to a desire to do long-term ministry in Japan. In order to be better equipped, he returned to the U.S. where he earned master’s degrees in both biblical studies and teaching English as a second language.

For over two years Cathalain’s family was stationed in Japan. She was exposed to the Japanese culture by living off base and attending a Japanese school. Although Cathalain was young, this experience shaped her love for other cultures.

In 2011 the Carters returned to Japan together. After intensively studying Japanese for two years they moved to northern Nagoya to intern at Shiga Church. During the two-year internship, the Shiga leadership’s vision aligned with the Carters’ vision to church plant in downtown Nagoya. In 2016 Michael and Cathalain will begin a new daughter church plant with oversight and partnership from Shiga Church. 

Please pray as they begin a new church in Nagoya. Pray God would be glorified in their efforts to bring His name and gospel to the Japanese.
