SENIOR PASTORS – Rod & Viv Plummer
Our senior Pastors, Ps Rod and Viv Plummer, are true pioneers with a passion to reach all people with God’s message. Not only do they pastor all of our Lifehouse Churches across Japan and beyond, but they have also pastored for many years in Australia, and have overseen and led multiple church-planting projects in several other nations such as Thailand, Philippines and Indonesia.
In response to God’s call Ps. Rod and Viv, along with their two sons, left a large thriving church in Toowoomba Australia to plant a new church in Tokyo Japan.
Our pastors hearts are to inspire, mentor, and equip hundreds of young Japanese and foreign leaders to minister to the needs of people not only in the greater Tokyo area, but throughout Japan and beyond.
Ps Rod is truly known as a “training pastor”, having raised up and discipled hundreds of young people to serve in all areas of ministry.
Our pastors are the true embodiment of what it means to “Go and make disciples of all nations” (Matthew 28:19 NIV)
LEAD PASTORS – Shiva & Amanda Horiuchi
Shiva and Amanda have a passion to reach people for Jesus and have been called specifically to reach out to the west part of Tokyo at Lifehouse Tachikawa.
Shiva became a Christian at Lifehouse Tokyo many years ago, and Amanda joined the church when she moved to Tokyo after graduating university. Both were serving at the church when they met and started dating.
Soon after, they felt God calling them to go farther west to the areas of Kichijoji, Tachikawa, and beyond to reach out to more people and tell them the message of Jesus.
Since 2014, the church planting team has held outreaches, weeknight services, and events in order to reach and disciple many people in the area. Along the way, Shiva and Amanda got married and Shiva was appointed as the lead pastor of Lifehouse Tachikawa. The church officially launched its Sunday services in May 2017.
Shiva and Amanda have a heart for seeing Japan saved (and all people who call Japan home) and we invite you to join us on the exciting journey of the church! If you’d like to learn more or meet us in person, come to the Next Steps Corner on Sunday.
