Pastor Fukuda on Japan's "Vision Festa"
I’m Makoto Fukuda from Grace City Church Tokyo. I’m a church planter as we as a pastor of the church.
This year’s Church multiplication Vision Festa was great. I’ve noticed that this Vision Festa had much wider network than the one we had before in Tokyo. I can see increased interests in church planting and church multiplication, and I realized that its work has been spread, deepen, and strengthen.
I really saw God has been at his work. Our work of church planting has been in the urban city area, and I saw a great momentum of church planting in local areas as well. Truly, God has been actively working. I believe that the Holy Spirit would use each one of us where we are placed according to his will.
I also believe that church multiplication would be advanced if we continue to share our ministry, learn from each other, pray and encourage each other through these opportunities like Vision Festa. Even though we Christians are minorities and not many churches in Japan, and we have so many needs, I believe God will continue to use us.
I look forward to the network of Church Multiplication Vision Festa to grow, and new people to join us and to build wider partnership. That way, I would love to serve for the Kingdom of God together.

I trust you find Pastor Fukuda's reflections encouraging. It's a privilege to help catalyze movements like Vision Festa.
