This is the website of Grant, Miho, Allie and Zoe Buchholtz. Grant is originally from Des Moines, Iowa, while Miho is from Yokohama, Japan. Having met in France, God united us to go back to Japan for a life of ministry. For four years we lived in Boston where we both pursued our M.Div. degrees from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary. Upon graduation, we lived in Edinburgh, Scotland, where Grant studied preaching after having received the Parish Pulpit Scholarship preaching award. In June while still in Scotland, we welcomed Allie into our family. We both served on staff at Highrock Church in Arlington, MA.  Together we pioneered the youth group which was passed on to the new youth pastor as we left Boston. In September 2010, we moved to Yokohama, Japan serving alongside the Tsurumi Covenant Church as ECC missionaries for two years. In December 2012, we welcomed Zoe into our family. In August 2013, we returned to Japan as ECC long-term missionaries to plant Tokyo Life Church in the Ikebukuro area of Tokyo. In January 2015, we officially launched Tokyo Life Church and are now meeting weekly in Ikebukuro. You can find out more about this church at www.tokyolifechurch.com.

    Melody and I will be praying that the LORD has His perfect and pristine way with you in Edinburgh, Jerusalem and Tokyo-Yokohama.


  2. Hi Grant & Miho: Great web site. I plan on sharing some of it at The Men’s Fellowship on Thursday morning that I facilitate here at Monadnock Covenant Church in Keene NH. I will add it as a weekly prayer and praise item.

    • Thank you Ron. We really value your prayers as they help sustain us in ministry here.
