SERVE & CONNECT

Who We Are
Welcome! Ishinomaki Christian Center (ICC) is a Christian non-denominational organization that serves the local community and church and acts as a bridge between them by providing assistance directly to individuals, organizations, and the church in Ishinomaki and beyond.
Working in partnerships with local churches and ministries in Ishinomaki, Onagawa and Higashi Matsushima and leveraging our unique non-denominational platform to support the church networks. We serve our city by serving with local ministry partners through the following ways.
ICC was founded. A pivotal year for GMT and churches to transition into ICC. Much focus were on volunteer housing and coordination for post-tsunami relief work.
Liberty Music Project (LMP) commenced with the aim of community outreach through music. ICC remained swamped by volunteer coordination and restoration of volunteer housing.
A bustling year with volunteer programs helping the fishery program through “Partnership Ocean”, kids programs and ICC Volunteer House restoration.
ICC conducted Grief Care Seminar for local churches and communities members. Last year for Ishinomaki Gospel Festival.
A year of transition with staff changes at ICC. With gradual decline in the number of volunteers coming, ICC’s focus shifted to increasingly church networking support.
Much effort dedicated to the completion of ICC building while the team also supported various churches for kids program and the “Together” music concert by Gong min. ICC building had completed.
Focuses on Community Music ministry for ICC Opening Concert, worship nights for joint local church members. Dynamic use of ICC building with ICC Community bazzar, Edmond Chan disciple training seminar.
ICC organised Gospel music workshops with Daisuke Yokoyama and various artists at ICC continued to lead volunteer teams to help the local communities through school and fishery.
Due to the effects of Corona virus, much regular activities and corporate gatherings had been affected by the restrictions.
We are thankful for the ways in which we are able to be tangibly involved in the community. Through these projects, we can be a tool of hope and community-building.
We invite you to come join the ICC community and make a difference in the life of people impacted by disasters. Explore how you can get involved.
