光田 裕一 Yuichi Kota

ユース牧師 Youth Pastor


Born in Aichi, Pastor Yuichi traveled the world a little before he started coming to New Hope Tokyo in 2003, where he eventually became a Christian, and started walking a completely different life than before. As he learned more about God and served in the church, he had a desire to serve God more with his life, and entered Pacific Rim Bible Institute Japan. After graduation, he did his internship at New Hope Tokyo and became the Youth Pastor. He is involved in many activities with children and teens in the church.
He is blessed with wife Sanae and a son Nicoko.

Besides Japanese and English, Pastor Yuichi is also known to speak some Spanish.
