Jim & Cara Tilus
Jim and Cara serve with the Assemblies of God as the directors of Japanese Student Connections (JSC) in the Twin Cities area of Minnesota. JSC exists to “Make the Gospel Relationally Accessible for Every Japanese Student in the Twin Cities and Mankato.” They direct a ministry team to carry out this vision through relational evangelism, community building, discipleship, practical service, and leading home and church services within the local Japanese student community. They have direct partnerships with many churches and ministries in Japan so that returning students can be guided into a spiritual community where they continue to grow into faith. They also are active in assisting with Japanese student ministry nationwide through consulting with campus ministers.
