Jonathan Edward Wilson
Served as a missionary to Japan from 1989 in church planting working as a supporting missionary and pastor for three church plants with Tokyo Horizon Chapel and then as the founding pastor of Grace Christian Fellowship in Ome, Tokyo, Japan.
Ministry has been centered on expository preaching of the word of God, heartfelt contemporary worship, an emphasis on grace and the leading of the Holy Spirit.
Following that leading, we have focussed our outreach in two areas; children and compassion ministries. Grace Christian Fellowship is known for innovative children's programs, events and outreaches and a grace-centered learning environment at Grace Christian International School. We also reach out to our community through a food bank "Manna" that shares needed groceries with families through local churches in our area.
Flowing out of these two areas of ministry are two larger programs that have impacted the church in Japan as a whole and now the rest of Asia. One is CRASH Japan, (Christian Relief, Assistance, Support and Hope) that networks local churches and the global church to bring relief to those in disasters. CRASH Japan has responded to many disasters in Japan, but became an independent non-profit organization after the 2011 tsunami.
OperationSAFE is a program that combines both of our strengths, children's ministry and disaster relief into a child trauma resilience program that can be used by churches serving children after natural and man-made disasters.
