MEET THE PASTORS
PS ROD & VIV PLUMMER
Our senior Pastors, Ps Rod and Viv Plummer, are true pioneers with a passion for reaching every person with Gods’ message. Not only do they oversee all of our Lifehouse Churches across Japan and beyond, but they have also pastored for many years in Australia, and have supervised and led multiple church-planting projects in several other nations such as Thailand, the 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.
Their heart is 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 leaders who are now serving and training the next generation 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)
Ps. Luke & Izumi Kennedy
Luke became a Christian at 14 under the leadership of Ps. Rod and Viv Plummer in Queensland, Australia. He moved to Japan with the Japan Team to help start the Tokyo Lifehouse Church in 2004.
Before leading Lifehouse Osaka, Luke led a growing young adult ministry in Australia while graduating from studies in Social Work and completing his Bible college study.
In 2005 Luke received a vision to build a large church in Osaka which would love the next generation in Japan. In 2009 the church began with 7 people and has now grown significantly with students, young professionals and young families. Luke and Izumi’s passion is to raise up and train leaders who can reach this city with the good new of Jesus.
Luke and Izumi were married in 2009.
