You might have heard of Michael Oh, he leads Christ Bible Seminary in Japan. I was able to hear him live at the 2009 Desiring God Pastor’s Conference. We had a student attend Urbana ’09 and he spoke there as well.
It seems there’s a short window of opportunity to purchase a strategically placed ministry campus in downtown Nagoya, Japan. The total cost of the building will be approximately $1.2 million, down from $3.3 million two years ago. Oh would appreciate our prayers this Wednesday (today) at 9:00 pm (ET), when they will be meeting with the owners and real estate agents. They are hoping to negotiate the price down even more if possible.
John Piper recently weighed in on this.
Here’s a video discussing the opportunity…
