Andy Rodriguez (Japan)

Andy Rodriguez serves in Nagoya, Japan with his wife Jenny and their two boys. In 2007, compelled by Christ’s commission and the great need for the gospel in Japan, Andy joined a team of church planters who moved to Japan with a vision to make disciples by planting churches in urban Japan. Japan is a modern country that is only 1% Christian. The first church began in December 2009 in Nagoya, Japan, of which Andy serves as lead pastor. By God’s grace, MSCC [Mustard Seed Christian Church] has grown into a vibrant church in the heart of the city that is committed to gospel-proclamation, relentless evangelism, biblical teaching, authentic community, and disciple making.

After planting the first church in Nagoya, a team was sent to Osaka and a second church was planted. A third church was launched in Kobe in 2016 and a fourth in Kyoto at the end of 2017. The four Mustard Seed Network churches have celebrated a total of 100 baptisms since launching the first church in 2009. We hope to continue making disciples, developing leaders and planting more churches in urban Japan for the glory of God. For more information visit www.mustardseed.network.
