Reverend Mas Kobayashi
Mas Kobayashi has served as a part-time preaching pastor since August 2012. He was saved through the ministry of a missionary in Japan in his youth and came to Canada to study the Bible. Eight years of formal theological study equipped him to teach and preach the Word of God. He has a wealth of ministry experience: Preaching, Sunday School teaching, church growth ministry, men’s ministry, youth ministry, music ministry and numerous short-term missions to Japan. His desire is to let Christ shine in the life of believers. His favorite verse is Col 1: 28-29, “We proclaim Him, admonishing every man and teaching every man with all wisdom, so that we may present every man complete in Christ. For this purpose also I labor, striving according to His power, which mightily works within me.” This is his desire which is demonstrated in his sermon to make listening believers to know Jesus better than they ever did before.
