OUR TEAM

THE PAGARAGANS

The

Pagaragans

We are Jeff, Kelly, Taylor, Bailey, Kendyl, Reagan, and Colson Pagaragan - TEAM missionaries to Japan. We’ve spent the past four years in Tokyo loving students in Jesus’ name simply by living life with them. God has given us real joy in this type of hospitality evangelism and discipleship, and our passion for this student center called The Neighborhood is an expansion of the work God has already begun. We are currently stateside looking for the necessary funds in order to make the vision God has given us for The Neighborhood a reality.

THE HENGEVELDS

We are Gordon and Julie Hengeveld - TEAM missionaries to Japan and interns at The Neighborhood. When we met the Pagaragans in 2016, we instantly felt ‘in’ the family. We share their passion for making people on the outside feel on the inside. God has knit our hearts together as we’ve worked in this type of hospitality ministry. Over and over, we’ve seen people drawn to God’s peace through the family atmosphere found at The Neighborhood. As Jesus is gentle and lowly, so we seek to be accessible and vulnerable to those who are broken and needy in Japan.
