Damian Grateley

Tokyo

Damian is married to Utako and they were both educated at Regents Theological College, Nantwich, where they gained Bachelor degrees in Applied Theology. They have been involved in Christian ministry from an early age and are passionate about raising up balanced, gospel-centred Christians. As well as working as a pastor, care-worker, dance teacher and stage performer, Damian also helped to lead a group of Christian artists known as C.A.L.E.B (Christian Artists Living and Expressing their Beliefs). His desire to bring together faith, community and creativity remains with him today.

Damian is currently serving as part of the Grace Church Planting Network - a group of churches working together to promote a church planting movement in Tokyo, and across Japan. Damian's heart and prayer is to see this network helping to raise up a new generation of church planters who are well equipped to bring spiritual, social and cultural renewal through the Gospel, to both themselves, their families and the city.
