Ken Milhous

RJC Network Director and Leader of Conference Function

Ken Milhous

RJC Network Director and Leader of Conference Function

Ken and his wife Debby Milhous have been serving as missionaries since 1994. Ken grew up as a missionary kid in Japan, speaks fluent Japanese, and has been involved in Japanese ministry for almost all of his life. After seminary, Ken and Debby were led to begin full-time ministry among Japanese living in the United States. The Milhouses are reaching out to Japanese, primarily in the Boston area, through the Boston Japanese Christian Church (BJCC), a mission outpost church, which they started in 1995. Thousands of Japanese people live in Boston and surrounding communities. Most come only for several years to study in universities, do research in those institutions and in hospitals, or for other endeavors. While here, they are open to new experiences; yet they want a connection to something from home, so a Japanese-language church is strategic for reaching them. Ken also spends part of his time serving in leadership for Reaching Japanese for Christ (RJC), as the current director, on the network council and conference planning committees, as well as an interpreter and speaker at RJC conferences.
