Youth Subway Fund

Youth Subway Fund

We hope to have a general fund to help pay a small supplement for youth to take the subway to get to the cafe so that money worries won't prevent them from coming to the cafe.

Help equip the cafe kitchen

We've designed a kitchen with the special needs of our espresso machine and drains, etc. We also need to set up a nice countertop for the front of the cafe. The total cost needed is about $10,000.

About This Project

With thousands of youth suicides annually (one Japanese commits suicide every 15 minutes), shockingly high teen prostitution rates (9% of high school girls and 4% of junior high school girls report having participated), ubiquitous child pornography (possession of which is legal in Japan), and seemingly inescapable bullying in schools (70% report bullying or having been bullied), young people in Japan desperately need Jesus Christ!

Heart & Soul Cafe is an outreach in downtown Nagoya with the goal of providing a "safe space" for Japanese high school and college students.  Young people come and drink coffee, make friends, perform at Open Mic nights, learn English at Eikaiwa (English Conversation School) classes or at English Cafe Night, and learn about Jesus.  It also serves as a hub where young Christians around Nagoya can come to meet with each other and also introduce non-Christian friends to young Christians.
