Fussa Bethel Church

Fussa Bethel Church was founded by a missionary pastor from Washington State USA named Ruth Kronen. We were established as a pioneer church on April 17, 1955 and was contiguous to the Yokota Air Base. Our early work started by consoling & encouraging American soldiers. Japanese youths gradually gathered around these American soldiers and eventually afterward, we became a church for Japanese people. Pastor John & his wife Mrs. Elsie Venton, Pastor Alfred, Pastor Wilder, Pastor Clyde & wife Mrs. Yvonne Bade and later on, Pastor Yoshio and Noriko Tsusaka were the pastors. Though Fussa Bethel church is a Japanese church we are also joined by foreigners in our contemporary worship service. We have small groups of new generation whose priority is the caring of the church, & through various ministries, we reachout to the people in our neighboring communities.

Pastors: Tsuzaka Yoshi & Tsuzaka Noriko
