About Us

Naoto (born in U.S.) and Erisa grew up in Japan, but most of their adult years have been spent in the U.S. Erisa is a second-generation missionary. They met in Los Angeles while individually pursuing missions and got married in 2014. God has given them two boys, Toshiki and Subaru. In 2021, they were commissioned by Faith Church under Pastor Aaron Birk’s discipleship and leadership.
