Our Mission

Project Oak is not a mission or group unto itself, but rather describes the heart of our family calling. When Jesus declared his public ministry in the synagogue, He read from the scroll of Isaiah speaking of the people He had come to minister to. The passage he read from continues:

To grant to those who mourn in Zion—

To give them a beautiful headdress instead of ashes,

The oil of gladness instead of mourning,

The garment of praise instead of a faint spirit;

That they may be called oaks of righteousness,

The planting of the LORD, that he may be glorified.

(Isaiah 61:3)

We hope to continue in the heart of Jesus to serve his unreached people in Japan. To work the soil so that He will be glorified by strong brothers and sisters who have come to faith in the most spiritually barren of soil.

Our Family

Meet Jason

Jason is a lifelong student and teacher.  He has gained a wide skill set in mental health and event coordination through his career. Now, God has called him to provide people in Japan with a place and reason to come engage with the Gospel.  Jason has a love for discipleship and helping others come to know the love that Jesus has for them.

Meet Anna

Anna is passionate about children and helping them to know the joy of God.  She serves as an elementary school teacher at the International Christian Acadamy of Nagoya.  At ICAN, Anna has the privilege of sharing the Gospel each day to a student body who is predominantly non-Christian.  She also serves as a tutor for missionary children attending Japanese public schools.

Meet The Reedys

Our family enjoys spending time together—usually lost in our imaginations.  Whether it be board games, readings stories, or talking over a meal—there is no lack of laughter and love.  Our children, Avi and Willa, delight in their new home and new friends here in Japan.

Why Japan

Though Japan has open borders and freedom of religion, less than 0.5% of the 127,000,000+ population are evangelical Christian – making Japan the second largest unreached people group in the world.  With only 8,000 churches in the entire country, there are over 20 unchurched cities and over 500 unchurched towns.
Though Japan is well known for its technology and hard working society, there are many other areas that go unnoticed.

•   Suicide rate 60% above global average – the leading cause of death for men under 40.

•  Skyrocketing incidence underage pornography production

•  1 in 10 teenage girls involved in prostitution, many forced or coerced.

•  Above average rates of eating disorders, alcoholism, and drug abuse.

Japan is a beautiful country filled with wonderful people desperately in need of God’s grace.   We know that all tribes and tongues will be represented before the throne.  Why not Japan?  Why not now?
