About Wayne & Miho Jansen
Papers rustling, voices whispering, pages turning. These are the sounds of anticipation and dedication in a typical freshman seminary class. But the air hangs heavier in seminary classrooms in Japan, for less than one percent of the country’s population claims the religion these students are studying.
Wayne Jansen provides theological and practical training for seminary students and church leaders through the United Church of Christ in Japan (UCCJ). With a shortage of trained clergy, Wayne is building up the next generation of local church leadership and is preparing them for various challenges within the ministry of a church.
