About the conference
It has been a whole 25 years since the work of JCFN has begun! It is because of God's love, grace, and vision that we have been able to continue this work. It is also due to everyone that prayed for, supported, and served with us.
For the past three times, we have held this conference thinking "Once every five years, let's meet in the middle of Japan and America in Honolulu!" However, the ministry for returnees and Japanese people living abroad has spread from the United States to all of North America, and is currently making its way out on a global level, so we have been busy and haven't been able to get in touch for a while. But this time we are able to collaborate with a local Honolulu church, and have decided to host a JCFN 25th anniversary celebration conference. We are thankful.
At the Conference
Let us give our praise and thanks to and the Lord, for what He has done in and through JCFN for these past 25 years! Let's receive JCFN's future direction and new vision from God together!
Let's widen the circle of fellowship and deepen the bond with JCFN fellow workers (returnees, those that follow up with returnees, the many supporters and volunteers, maintenance workers, evangelists for the Japanese, director, staff, supporting director, etc)! Not only for JCFN, but let's individually receive our callings from God!
About the theme
When we give our praises to God, His blessings rain down on us, and that does not just stay there: it flows out from us. When we turned our focus to God, we were given the vision "Go out into all the world..." so we will go out together with the Lord.
When we look up and praise the Lord, who has led JCFN for 25 years (UP), we will pray for the continuous advancement of this work that He Himself started--ministry for returnees and the Japanese living abroad (OUT). And we will also pray for this to be a time for every participant to individually give praise and receive a new vision.
