Black Gospel Music Draws Japanese to Jesus

The Tokyo Journal reports that “thousands of Japanese [are] flocking to gospel singing workshops to clap their hands and sing praise to Jesus.” African-American gospel music has become very popular in Japan, and the phenomenon has inspired a new outreach by Kawaguchi Church, an Alliance congregation in Japan. Because of God’s provision through the GCF, Alliance international workers David and Vangi Kindervater lead this evangelistic effort that is meeting a very real social need in Japan. The idea of being in the “group” and a part of something is important to Japanese people, and this outreach has caused many to visit the church and ask questions about the meaning of the songs they enjoy singing.
