SENIOR PASTORS – Rod & Viv Plummer

Our senior Pastors, Ps Rod and Viv Plummer, are true pioneers with a passion to reach all people with Gods’ message. Not only do they pastor all of our Lifehouse Churches across Japan and beyond, but they have also pastored for many years in Australia, and have overseen and led multiple church-planting projects in several other nations such as Thailand, Philippines and Indonesia.

In response to God’s call Ps. Rod and Viv, along with their two sons, left a large thriving church in Toowoomba Australia to plant a new church in Tokyo Japan.

Our pastors hearts are to inspire, mentor, and equip hundreds of young Japanese and foreign leaders to minister to the needs of people not only in the greater Tokyo area, but throughout Japan and beyond.

Ps Rod is truly known as a “training pastor”, having raised up and discipled hundreds of young people to serve in all areas of ministry.
Our pastors are the true embodiment of what it means to “Go and make disciples of all nations” (Matthew 28:19 NIV)


LEAD PASTORS – Johno & Stefanie McDonald

Our lead pastors, John and Stefanie McDonald, have a passion to reach all people with the message Jesus and make disciples. Before coming to Japan, they were youth pastors in Australia for 7 years, and were part of a church that supported Lifehouse Church from when it first began in Tokyo in 2002.

In 2012 they felt the call of God to move to Japan and be a part of Lifehouse Tokyo. During this time God put the city of Fukuoka on their hearts. They have since fallen in love with Fukuoka and have a long term vision from God for reaching the people of Kyushu. John and Stefanie are great leaders, who have a passion for the Japanese people.
