Background

Eriko grew up in Miyagi, Japan and came to Christ in high school. John was born Upland, CA and saved while attending college in Tokyo. John was called into full-time ministry while interpreting a message from English into Japanese as a short-term missionary in 1979.  John and Eriko were married in 1981 and have four adult children and two grandchildren. The Houlettes were appointed with Asian Access in July 2013. 

Ministry Experience

Prior to joining A2/SIM, the Houlettes served faithfully for thirty years in Japan with WorldVenture. They planted Nishitama Baptist Church in Tachikawa, Saikyo Hope Chapel in Toda and Denen Grace Chapel in Kawasaki where many became Christ followers. Two of the churches have national pastors and are planting daughter churches. John and Eriko invested in field leadership and collaborated to develop a church planting strategy with the Japanese national church.

Since 2011, John has been the director of Three Stream Ministries (TSM) providing clergy care and disaster response chaplaincy training for the church in Japan. After Japan’s triple disaster, he spearheaded WorldVenture’s disaster relief strategy and along with Eriko worked closely with Asian Access to provide Oasis Retreats for pastors.  Eriko has served on the board of directors of the Christian Academy in Japan and at Wheelchairs of Hope. 

Education

John graduated from The Middlebury Institute of International Studies, PacRim Christian University and Fuller Seminary. He completed his Doctor of Ministry degree at Bethel Seminary in Congregational and Family Care in 2015. Eriko is a graduate of the Sendai Baptist Seminary and Wellesley College. She completed a master’s degree at the Harvard Graduate School of Education in Human Development and Psychology in 2014. 

Current and Future Ministry

The Houlettes partner with Hokushin Calvary Church in Fukushima city, assisting the church in leader development and church planting.  John provides clergy care and leadership training in Japan and Greater Asia.

Eriko works as an educational resource consultant through Japanese language teaching and child safety training.

Vision

My vision is to see vibrant communities of servant leaders in Japan and Greater Asia empowering their peers to be whole, holy and missional.
