The Livengoods' Story
David and Sarah Mae Livengood work with Mustard Seed Network to plant gospel-centered churches in urban Japan. Mustard Seed Network has planted six churches in Japan. David serves at Mustard Seed Christian Church Nagoya and focuses on evangelism and discipleship. David and Sarah Mae have served in Japan since 2012 and have four children.
Nagoya is the third largest city in Japan, with over nine million people in the greater metropolitan area. Less than 1% of the 126 million people in Japan claim to have faith in Jesus. The Japanese are the second largest unreached people group in the world. Most people in Japan have never been to church, have never read the Bible, and have no Christian friends.
