John and Elaine Mehn have served as Converge missionaries in Japan since 1985. Their primary ministry is cross-cultural church planting, direct evangelism and outreach, mobilization and equipping for church planting, leadership development and spiritual renewal mentoring. John is the director of the JEMA Church Planting Institute. They are both trainers, authors and speakers.
Their next home assignment is in 2020, but in the summer they visit family in Northern Illinois (Rockford), where their two children and two grandchildren live, and often then visit churches.
