Jake and Anna Claire are from the United States (Georgia) and met during their freshman year of college. Jake attended the University of Georgia and studied English Literature while Anna Claire studied Early Childhood Education at Georgia State University. They married upon graduation in 2008, and began to work in youth ministry at Christ the King Presbyterian Church in Roanoke, Virginia. In college, through Reformed University Fellowship (RUF), Jake came to know the transforming power and love of God in the gospel. Since that time, he has had a heart for reaching young people with Christ’s love. Anna Claire’s desire to minister to women and children grew out of her diverse teaching experience and love for Christ. She believes it is her gift and calling to serve them with her life.

The Gees are both humbled and excited to be called to minister in the city of Nagoya, Japan to love and serve their Japanese neighbors and Nisshin Church. They currently help support the Nagoya church-planting team through ministry to mothers, children, college students, various media ministry, and teaching English.
