Pastor Shoichi Ino (IBF Senior Pastor)
I and my family, and a number of friends, started this church 31 years ago. Affiliated with the Japan Evangelical Covenant Church, we have had the cooperation of missionaries and rich fellowship among many people. The church’s small group worship and prayer times, and English classes and music classes, especially have helped people enjoy wonderful friendships. In addition, for a number of years now we have had active fellowship with the church in America. We acquired a new meeting place in October of 2003, and as an international fellowship, we hope to continue serviing God and people more and more. Please visit our meetings and activities at least once. We are ready to welcome you!

Missionary See Huang Lim
I am a native English speaker from Malaysia. I graduated with a Master’s degree in English from Abilene Christian University, Texas, United States. In America, I taught English as a Second Language (ESL) to Japanese students. When I returned to my home country of Malaysia, I taught Japanese housewives and businessmen English.
I enjoy cooking and vegetable gardening. I have been studying Japanese for many years, and while I am able to converse on everyday subjects, I would like to better improve my Japanese.
Pastor Kitazawa (Japan Evangelical Covenant Church, Assisting Pastor)
When I think of journeying with all of you, I feel a deep sense of joy. The Bible has plenty of evidence that we should consider Jesus Christ as our Savior anad Lord. One of my roles here is to convey this message to you. I look forward to meeting with you. On a personal level, my favorite hobby is spending time with my wife.

I’ve had wonderful years at IBF, so I’m sad to say that I’ve decided it’s time for me to return America. I will begin my life there celebrating Christmas, after celebrating an early Christmas events here withyou! Thank you for your friendship through the years. I really appreciate it and hope it continues in the future by visits and correspondence.(Dec.2012)
