Todofuken Initiative for Church Planting

The Todofuken Initiative for Church Planting is an effort to network church planters across Japan to one another and to support resources for church planting. Missiological studies identify a people group as “unreached” so long as the population remains less than 2% evangelical Christian; the Japanese people number over 120 million and only 0.3% of them may be identified as evangelical. In order for the Japanese to become a “reached” people group, a movement of renewal and church planting would have to occur, leading to the conversion of over 2 million Japanese individuals. If these 2 million new believers were dispersed in churches of 200, this movement would require the planting of at least 10,000 new churches planted across the 47 prefectures of Japan. This ministry is currently in the early stages of development.

All Nations Fellowship

All Nations Fellowship (ANF) is a bilingual church that began services in June of 2008. It was launched by the CBI team and is now an independent church with a vision for multiplication. ANF currently has two locations in downtown Nagoya and the Nagakute area.
