By God’s grace Jane was born into a Christian home, through which she came to know Christ at an early age. After graduating from Wheaton College she taught in a Christian high school established by West End PCA in Hopewell, Virginia. It was during MTW’s 1983 summer missions program in Asia that the Lord called Jane to be a missionary. In 1985 she joined a church-planting team targeting Nagoya, Japan, where she has been involved in the evangelism and discipleship processes of starting new churches. Most of her work involves leading evangelistic Bible studies and discipling those who come to Christ.
