Partner with Pastor John through prayer and financial support

Pastor John Katagi or "PJ" provides direction and drive for JEMS South America Mission program. Since 1991, Pastor John has cultivated networking relationships with pastors, churches, young people and community leaders in Brazil, Paraguay, Argentina and Peru. That experience is now being utilized to connect our JEMS missions projects to churches and programs in South America.

Using team and talent-based models of ministry, JEMS uniquely tailors its teams to local ministry needs. In addition to the administrative foundations that are laid, Pastor John provides teams and workers with cross-cultural and language training to prepare them for their respective ministries.

Pastor John brings over twenty years pastoral ministry experience to this position at JEMS. He serves churches here at home as a missions advocate and as a practical vision resource for churches desiring to establish or to further develop their missions ministry.
