Sean first went to Japan as a college student for a summer of campus ministry in Tokyo. A native of Birmingham, Ala., his experience as a student in the heart of Japanese culture where less than 0.3 percent of the population are Christians left a deep impression on him and began his sense of calling to the nation and next generation of Japan. Sean met Lisa, who grew up in Evansville, Ind., soon after his time in Japan and they married in 2002.
Sean received a master of divinity degree and Lisa a master of arts in counseling from Covenant Theological Seminary. He went on to serve as an assistant minister to college students at The Church of the Good Shepherd (PCA) in Durham, N.C., for over four years.
Sean and Lisa are a part of MTW’s Next Asia-Pacific team, based in Japan. Their focus is on both reaching young people by serving locally through outreach and discipleship through the local church, and ministering to the youth of mission families. Their prayer is for the young people of Japan to flourish in a movement of God’s Word and Spirit.
