My name is Kevin Ueta and I’ve been serving as the Student Ministries Pastor at the Japanese Gospel Church of Toronto since 2007. I’ve been married to my wife, Michelle, since 2007 as well and we have a 17-month-old daughter, Kiyomi Lia. My passion for Japanese ministries first started on my first trip to Japan and Okinawa by myself in 2000. God used the experiences on that trip to ignite a passion to reach out to the Japanese with the hope of the message of the gospel. I’ve since then been involved in various cross-cultural missions trips to Japan and student ministries in Canada, which is where God has led me to serve in recent years. My current vision is to see students of this generation being equipped for God’s Kingdom work as vibrant disciples of Christ wherever they may go.
Brief explanation of the seminar:
As disciples of Christ we should not only be concerned about developing Christ-like attitudes but we should also be engaged with the work and the mission that He was passionately pursuing. We will be exploring how the mission of God through Christ can help provide a framework for ministries that work with students.
