What is FONTS?
FONTS is playing its part in the story God is writing in Japan. We have been a part of this story since 2003, when we were established as a U.S.-based non-profit organization with a purpose of advocating for CBI. We advocate by praying, connecting, raising resources, and empowering others as senders.
In 1999, a man named Michael Oh had a vision for a seminary in Japan that would train up a new generation of Japanese Christian leaders for the Japanese people. In Japan, nearly 80% of pastors are in their 50’s, 60’s, and 70’s.
More than twenty years before the vision for Christ Bible Institute (CBI) was born, pastors in the Nagoya area were praying for a seminary where young people could be trained for gospel ministry
