錦織 学 Manabu Nishikori

大阪生まれ。4歳の時、東京の江東区木場に引っ越し、ホーリネス深川キリスト教会で育つ。東京聖書学院卒業後、東京聖書学院教会の副牧師として奉仕したあと、1992年に渡米、ベテル神学校、エモリー大学、ドゥルー大学で学ぶ。1997年からニュージャージー日本語キリスト教会の牧師。牧師家庭に生まれ、優等生クリスチャンとして育ったものの、大学生の時に自分の中の偽善に気付き、苦しむ中で、一人の牧師の言葉を通してイエス・キリストと個人的に出会い、神の愛に圧倒され、その愛を伝えることを使命とする。好きなことは天気予報と子供のためのプログラムを考えること。そして最近はコーヒー焙煎やカニ釣りにはまる。
Born in Osaka. At the age of 4, he moved to Kiba in Tokyo and grew up at the Holiness Fukagawa Christian Church. After graduating from Tokyo Bible Seminary and serving as an assistant pastor at the Tokyo Bible Seminary Church, he moved to the United States in 1992, studying at Bethel Theological Seminary, Emory University, and Drew University. From 1997, he has been the pastor of the New Jersey Japanese Christian Church.
Born into a pastor’s household, he grew up a “honors Christian”, however, as a college student, he recognized the hypocrisy within himself. As he struggled with this, through words from a pastor, he met Jesus Christ on a personal basis. Overwhelmed by God’s love, he received a mission to proclaim that love. He likes weather forecasting and thinking about programs for children. Recently, he has been hooked on roasting his own coffee and crabbing.
