The Evans family (Chiba city, Japan)

The Evans family (John, Rose, Asher, Isabelle, Lily, Ivy, Jairus and Boaz) are working with MTW (Mission to the World) church planting initiative in Chiba prefecture. Their strategy is to plant Reformed, gospel-centred churches in areas with high rates of renewal and new housing estates that are within commuting distance of Tokyo; the single most city of influence in Asia. There, with the support of staff who have been planting churches for the past 20 years, John will, Lord willing, lead a team of people (including university workers), to establish a Christian presence in the Chiba City centre with the aim of evangelising those living, working, or studying there.
