Gifu, Japan

Ethan and Michele Fisher
About Us

Ethan and Michele have been serving in Gifu (a city in central Japan with a population of over 400,000) since 2014. They desire for whole families to come to Christ. To this end, they have worked to become part of their local community and are continuing to build long-lasting, authentic relationships in order to share the gospel with their Japanese friends and neighbors.

After serving alongside and learning from a Japanese pastor for nine years, God has led the Fishers to plant a church in their neighborhood. They aim to love, teach, train, and strengthen the small population of Japanese Christians.

Ethan and Michele have three sons. Their oldest, Benjamin, began home schooling for junior high, after attending Japanese public elementary school. Nathan and Aiden are currently attending their local Japanese elementary school.

Missions & Japan

The Japanese are the second largest unreached people group in the world. Unreached means that there is not an indigenous community of believing Christians with adequate numbers and resources to evangelize the people group without outside assistance.

Less than 1% of Christian giving goes towards missions work in these unreached areas of the world. And, less than 1% of all missionaries go to the least-reached. When Ethan and Michele share the gospel in Japan, it is common for it to be the first time people have heard this great news. Thank you for coming alongside the Fishers and enabling them to share of God's grace and salvation to the Japanese.
