David and Angela


Missionary, Asia, Japan, Vietnam

The Doans received full missionary appointment to Japan in 1994, after serving two years on the Associates In Missions program and pioneering the Okinawa UPC national church in Japan. They have just completed their fifth term. As veteran missionaries they started the Okinawa Apostolic Bible School fifteen years ago and have seen the Bible school training program grow to twenty apostolic Bible schools throughout Japan training many national leaders and workers. Their work includes pastoring a dynamic, revival Japanese church in the capital city of Naha, Okinawa, and seeing over twenty new preaching points and daughter works planted throughout Japan. As the general superintendent of the Japan United Pentecostal Church, Brother Doan is supervising the explosive growth of the national work throughout Japan.

This past term they have also continued to supervise the growth of the work in Vietnam by making several annual evangelistic and training trips into this revival nation. They have seen hundreds of Vietnamese baptized in Jesus’ name and receive the Holy Ghost. They started the first Vietnamese apostolic Bible school program in Ho Chi Minh City, using Purpose Institute, with many hundreds being trained this past term. Several students have graduated and have been sent into the harvest field of Vietnam.

When returning to the field they will be working with the Bible school program to see fifty apostolic Bible schools throughout the forty-seven prefectures of Japan with a goal of 1,000 students enrolled in the Bible school training. They will be working to establish new works in all the prefectures of Japan and to send regional missionaries from Japan to plant churches in other nations in Asia.
