SENIOR PASTORS – Rod & Viv Plummer

Our senior Pastors, Ps Rod and Viv Plummer, are true pioneers with a passion to reach all people with Gods’ message. Not only do they pastor all of our Lifehouse Churches across Japan and beyond, but they have also pastored for many years in Australia, and have overseen and led multiple church-planting projects in several other nations such as Thailand, Philippines and Indonesia.

In response to God’s call Ps. Rod and Viv, along with their two sons, left a large thriving church in Toowoomba Australia to plant a new church in Tokyo Japan.

Our pastors hearts are to inspire, mentor, and equip hundreds of young Japanese and foreign leaders to minister to the needs of people not only in the greater Tokyo area, but throughout Japan and beyond.

Ps Rod is truly known as a “training pastor”, having raised up and discipled hundreds of young people to serve in all areas of ministry.
Our pastors are the true embodiment of what it means to “Go and make disciples of all nations” (Matthew 28:19 NIV)


LEAD PASTORS – Johannes & Isis Berns

Hello, I am Johannes. I am German but born and raised in Japan. I came to Sapporo in 2011 to help start up Lifehouse Sapporo with just three people, but now it is full of life with over 100 people every week. God loves Sapporo!

With my Canadian wife Isis, I am now the Lead Pastor of Lifehouse Sapporo since 2016. I love this city of Sapporo in the midst of the beautiful nature of Hokkaido.

Church is filled with Joy, Praise and Love. Come and visit us!
