Dan and Paula Lumadue

AGWM Missionaries to Japan

  • Dan and Paula Lumadue are Assemblies of God World Missionaries to Japan.

  • The greater Tokyo area is home to 36 million people, which is nearly 25% of the population, and the most populated city in the world.

  • Only one-third of 1% of Japan’s population are believers, making the Japanese the second largest “NEVER-REACHED Peoples Group” in the world as most of this 99.7% have not even heard the Good News of Jesus Christ in all of human history! 

  • Located in this greater Tokyo area, Yokota is also home to one of our Air Force bases and provides the opportunity to provide a Spirit-empowered place of worship and ministry to these families who are serving our nation.

  • Dan and Paula will serve as Lead Pastor of Yokota ICA, which will be a hub of ministry to bring life and hope as the “land of the rising sun” experiences the love and power of the Risen Son!

So, will you minister to the US Military, Internationals, or the Japanese?

We get this question a lot! And, the answer is...

This Is Our Vision

  • We see a ministry where people gather together and experience a community of faith centered upon the Word of God and the Presence and Power of the Holy Spirit!

  • It is this united experience of God's presence at work which unites those who gather, no matter their native country.
  • This is what happened on the Day of Pentecost, and we have seen God work in this way when we pastored Neighborhood A/G Church in Okinawa, Japan.
  • In this atmosphere of God's love, power, and presence, we see people drawn to Christ, empowered by the Holy Spirit, and united in love and purpose.
  • This is the greater mission which unites these three main groups to whom we will minister at Yokota: Members of our US Military, Internationals, and the Japanese!

US Military at Yokota

Those who are serving at Yokota Air Base are literally "across the street" from where we will minister. Our experience in pastoring the military community has shown us the need, as well as the impact, of reaching our military families when they are stationed overseas. Far from home, they find a home, a church, a family, and purpose as they become a part of the community of faith! Young people, young families, and new believers are tremendously impacted by this type of ministry. We have also seen a number of these dear friends go into ministry after their military careers!

The Japanese

When we began to translate services into Japanese in Okinawa, something amazing happened. People would walk in, experience God's presence and the worship experience with others from all over the world, and they would know that something different was happening here! As a result, we saw many Japanese come to Christ and grow in Him. We expect the same God to be at work as we go to Yokota! Pray with us that the experience of God's presence, among His people would draw many in this nation to Christ, and then allow us to train them to go into their nation and reach others for eternity!

International Community

Tokyo is one of the largest cities in the world, and people come from all places and backgrounds. Ministry in this International context allows us to pour into people who will either remain in Tokyo and minister to others, or will return to their country and make an eternal difference in places that sometimes we cannot even reach! This is an exciting time to influence the world for Christ from the city of Tokyo! You can be a part of this as you pray and partner with us! Scroll down to see how!

 Would you like to be a part of the ministry God has called us to in Japan? 

If so, there are several ways you can help us:

  1. Personal Faith Promises – A faith promise is a monthly commitment to support us. This is how A/G missionaries are supported and sent – only through the giving that comes in through supporters. You can select either an online pledge form, or the explanation of a way to set up a recurring gift.  (Both open in new tabs)

  2. Church Services – Pastors, invite us to come and share a missions window. We are sharing what we have seen God do during our time in Japan, as well as the vision for what He will do. You can send us an e-mail by clicking HERE.

  3. Share with others – Please “like” and “share” our GoJapan.AG Social Media pages (see links below)

Doug Clay: General Superintendent of the Assemblies of God

We appreciate this prayer of blessing from Doug Clay, General Superintendent of the Assemblies of God.  We first got to know Doug when he was our District Superintendent when we pastored in Ohio.  He was one of the first people to know about our recent appointment to missions and was excited for us as we prepare in this “stage of life” for what God has ahead!  Thank you Pastor Doug Clay for your prayer of blessing and your heart for missions!

Thank you for your prayers, support, friendship, and believing with us for God to move among our US military and among the Japanese as we simply say “Here am I, send me” to the Lord.  YOU are a part of that “sending” process, and we can’t begin to tell you how thankful and grateful we truly are!

Joy and Blessings to you,
Dan and Paula Lumadue
