Missionary to Japan
Lead Church Planter in Post-Disaster Iwate Prefecture (Northern Japan) with an unchurched unreached unengaged area focus
Dawn Birkner has been leading church plants in previously unchurched rural areas of Japan since 2001. By 2007, God had given her an unrelenting burden for Japan’s 1800 unchurched areas, which led to a vision for a network to increase awareness of their need for church plants and to encourage and help connect those ministering in rural Japan. By 2009, God brought together enough people with a similar heart to begin RJCPN (Rural Japan Church Planting Network). The network has been gradually expanding its activities since then. Come grow with us as we continue to develop, together helping empower and serve a grass roots movement to reach Japan’s remaining unchurched areas.
