Pastor Sato heads to the U.S. to personally share about Fukushima First Bible Baptist Church's experience following the nuclear disaster in Japan!

Exodus from Japan's Ground Zero

Meet Akira Sato, Senior Pastor of Fukushima First Bible Baptist Church—located just a few miles from Japan’s failed nuclear reactor site. His town evacuated. His congregation displaced. And today, members of Fukushima First Baptist Church are on their own Exodus journey. But their faith? It’s unshaken.

Rev. Sato, author of best-selling book, "Exodus Church," is compelled to share their collective experience with the global Church in North America and beyond, and now you have a chance to hear firsthand what has happened.

Through our disaster relief work, God provides Asian Access with a front row seat to see His goodness and grace in the face of unspeakable disaster.

Join Asian Access in early October in Los Angeles or Chicago for an update from Japan that you'll likely not soon forget. Experience stories from people who understand the situation firsthand in disaster stricken areas. 

We saved your seat. Please join us at any of these events!

More about Pastor Akira Sato

Pastor Akira Sato was born in Yamagata, Japan on March 11, 1957. He became senior pastor of Fukushima First Bible Baptist Church upon his graduation from Japan Bible Seminary in 1982. He led a struggling congregation into a four-campus multisite church. Rev. Sato is also a graduate and faculty of Asian Access' leader development ministry in Japan, JCGI Network. He has been involved training pastors through JCGI Network for the past twenty years.

His latest book called "Rurou no Kyokai" ("Exodus Church") is currently the best-selling Christian book in Japan. Fukushima First Bible Baptist Church buildings are located only about three miles from the nuclear power plant destroyed by the Tsunami. His entire congregation was forced to evacuate from their homes and community, and they are all uncertain when they will be allowed to return home. Sixty church members stayed together and are still living in a Christian camp west of Tokyo. He has been leading them and is working on helping them all relocate somewhere back in Fukushima prefecture together.

March 11—the day the triple disaster hit Japan—was actually his 54th birthday. Pastor Sato sensed the Lord's strong calling and responsiblity to share with the global Church what they have been going through and what God has taught them.

In addition to being a pastor and trainer of pastors, Sato Sensei is one of the most popular Christian conference speakers in Japan, as well as a prolific writer. He and his wife Chieko have three children and three grandchildren.
