Ministry Description

While I am in South Korea my main responsibility will be to feed the staff and students and help with the camp at the Bible Institute here. I also take care of the shopping for food and other needs of the kitchen here. During the time I am not working, I will be able to spend time with the students getting to know them and being able to pour into their lives.

About Joe

I grew up in a Christian home. But to me being a Christian was just something you claimed to be, it was a Sunday thing. Until my senior year of high school that is when I started to really ask what being a Christian is about. In the summer of 2013, I went to Word of Life Inn and conference center in the kitchen. I have always had a passion for working in the kitchen since my second year in high school and over that summer I dedicated my life to Christ and started to seek a relationship with him. Over the next few years, I had learned how to serve God through work in the kitchen, and in the summer of 2017, I heard of an opportunity to go serve in Japan working in the kitchen of SYME Japan. It was on my heart for a while and I had spent some time in prayer over it and I decided to pursue that opportunity. After starting to take steps I continued to see God provide the way. I even had the chance to go over and visit the school and meet the people. That first month I spent in Japan got me really excited to go back.

Life Verse

Philippians 1:27 "Only let your manner of life worthy of the gospel of Christ, so that whether I come and see you or am absent, I may hear that you are standing firm in one spirit, with one mind striving side by side for the faith of the gospel" (ESV)
