Our Pastor

Tamio Matsumoto

 Pastor Tamio Matsumoto has served at our church since 2010. He grew up in a rural southern part of Osaka. At the age of 26 he became a born-again Christian and was baptized while in the Philippines as a graduate student.

 Being a part of Manila Japanese Christian Church, Tamio felt a call to His ministry. For Biblical/ theological training, he attended Asian Theological Seminary in Quezon City and Japan Bible Seminary in Tokyo.

 Pastor Tamio has been married to his wife for 12 years and has children. Besides his pastoral ministry, he serves for a neighboring elementary school as the chairperson of PTA. He loves to learn/practice Tagalog/ Filipino.
