Jeff Stice Taking The Gospel To Japan

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – (October 2, 2017) – Gospel Music Hall of Fame inductee Jeff Stice is excited to take the Gospel to the people of Japan. As a part of the Hope Music Festival, Jeff will participate in an event that is meant to draw people together through the magic of music in hopes that Christianity can be shared to those in attendance.

“Pastor Yurika Mitsui and his family reached out to me some time ago after I had met them at Louisiana Baptist University where I had performed at their Alumni breakfast,” mentioned Jeff Stice. “They asked if I would come and be a part of the event, and I quickly replied ‘Arigato’ (which means ‘Thank you’ in Japanese).”

Jeff and his wife will travel to Tokyo, Japan on Thursday, October 5, 2017 and return to the United States on the following Thursday, October 12, 2017. The Hope Music Festival will be held on Monday, October 9, 2017 in Tokyo.

“Stacey and I are both excited and a bit nervous. Other than two or three words, we have no clue how to communicate with the people of Japan. They say music is the universal language, so I’m going to rely on that,” mentioned Jeff. “Only 2% of the country know anything about Christianity. I don’t believe this opportunity just happened. There is a divine reason, and we’re praying God will just use us so that He will get the glory from it.”

In addition to the Hope Music Festival, Tokyo Hope Mission Church will host Jeff in all three of its worship services on Sunday, October 9, 2017.

Jeff recently released his debut album for Daywind Instrumental, the Andrae Crouch tribute recording I’m Gonna Keep On. The project release earlier this summer to much critical acclaim.
