Japan - National
Jerret and Megan met outside a coffee shop in Webster Groves, MO in October of 2011, through a mutual friend. In their very first conversation, they both explained how it seemed the Lord was calling them into long term ministry in Japan! Jerret had grown up with a connection to Japan as a part of his heritage, and gradually became interested in pursuing missions there as he studied the language and made Japanese friends in college. Megan had just returned from her second summer helping missionaries in China, and had been introduced to the deep spiritual needs of Japan through her close friends and mentors. In less than two short years, they got married and started their journey towards church planting in Japan!
Jerret and Megan, along with their baby boy Jasper, hope to invest in church planting movements in the Tokyo area. Tokyo is one of the most populated cities in the world with over 36 million residents, the vast majority of which are Japanese. But the reality is that less than 0.5% of Japanese have a relationship with Christ, and most have never heard the Gospel. The Henleys are excited to join faithful missionaries, pastors, and lay people in making disciples and planting churches among the Japanese in Tokyo.
After, taking several years to invest in their marriage, grow as individuals, and receive further ministry experience and theological education, they started raising long term support in August of 2017!
They are continuing to expand their team of partners as they move towards a goal of launching in September of 2019!
