The Ministries of JEMS Pacific Northwest

We are committed to sharing Jesus' powerful love and amazing grace with those who are seeking for hope, meaning or purpose in their lives. We are also committed to helping all Christ followers deepen their connection with God and become fully devoted followers of Jesus. In partnership with PNW Asian American churches, we are reaching college students thru our four AACF campus ministries (UW Seattle, Seattle Pacific University, Seattle University and UW Bothell), reaching adults, children, youth and those with special needs thru our Warm Beach Summer Conference and through our Spring Concert and other events during the year. We believe in the church, Christ's body, as salt and light to the world (Matthew 5:13-16) and seek to partner with area churches to help fulfill the mission and vision the Holy Spirit has given them to further the Kingdom of God in the Pacific Northwest.

Invitation to Partnership

I would like to invite you to join with me in this powerful work by becoming a member of my prayer and financial support team. JEMS ministries have been an important part of my life and spiritual formation starting with my parents, Rev. Dick and Alice Nishioka, and from my early childhood years going to the JEMS Mt. Hermon Family Camps every summer. I am so grateful for this amazing opportunity to serve God and to serve others and to my wonderful family - my wife, Michele, and our children, Jayna and Cameron - for their love and support.

Give online here or if you prefer to give by check, make the check out to “JEMS” and write my name on the memo line. Mail the check to P.O. Box 86047, Los Angeles, CA 90086-0047.
