Young, Steve

Serving in United States | Acct # 18802


Stephen was born in Tokyo, a third generation missionary in Japan. His wife, Sarah, who went home to be with the Lord in August 2023, was born in Tennessee. They met while attending Covenant Seminary and married in 1977 after both completed their programs. The Youngs have two married children and four grandchildren.

Stephen and Sarah spent eight-and-a-half years of church planting in Japan under World Presbyterian Missions and MTW. From 1987 the Youngs were on loan to Mission to North America, working with the Westminster Japanese Church in Atlanta, Ga.

In 1991 the Youngs went to Melbourne, Australia, to begin a Japanese language church in cooperation with the Presbyterian Church of Victoria. They also established bridges between the Presbyterian Church of Australia and the Presbyterian Church in Japan by inviting Japanese ministers to participate in the work and by encouraging Australians to minister in Japan. In 2000 the Japanese ministry was placed into the hands of a successor. While ministering in Melbourne Sarah did some devotional writing that eventually became Jesus Calling. In 2001 the Young's mission was to establish a similar Japanese ministry in Perth, Western Australia. In cooperation with a Presbyterian church a Japanese church was formed. 

In 2013 Steve and Sarah Young moved to Nashville, Tenn., where Steve is currently ministering to the Japanese people through a multi-cultural PCA church in Cool Springs, Franklin.
