今月のVip Azabu

★Int’l VIP Club was founded in 1993 as an outreach program to business men and women in Tokyo.  Vip Club

★ Emma Akiyama has been the chairperson (main organizer) of the VIP Azabu, since September 2003. For the first 3 years Mr. and Mrs. Akiyama opened their home in Azabu to invite speakers and audience (Christians and Non-Christians) once a month. In VIP Azabu, We ask business persons or professional people to share their Christian experience in their business and daily life in order to learn more about the Lord. It is our desire that the meetings give opportunities for non-Christians to encounter Christ.

★Currently VIP Azabu is held in the International House in Roppongi, a few times a year.
