Erik & Rhonda Boehme


Serving as Missional Partners
in Sendai, Japan

Bio: Erik and Rhonda Boehme


Background Info:

Erik grew up in Lake Havasu City, Arizona. He moved to Oregon to attend George Fox University where he met Rhonda. Rhonda grew up in Newberg, Oregon, the hometown of George Fox. After graduating in 1994, Rhonda flew off to Japan to teach English on the JET Program. When Rhonda was planning to return to the U.S. two years later, Erik decided to fly off to Japan with the JET Program so Rhonda decided to stay in Japan, and they were married 8 months later. In 1999 they returned to Oregon for Erik to attend Multnomah Biblical Seminary which thus began a search for a way to return to Japan to fulfill God’s calling on their lives.


Ministry Assignment:

The Boehmes have been with Asian Access since 2003.

  • Church Multiplication Teams: 2009 - present
  • Church Planting Associates (2006-'09) - Kysushu, Japan.
  • Pre-Field Candidates - 2003-'06


Words of wisdom...

Obstacles and distractions may abound in the pursuit of God's Call to missions, but DON'T GIVE UP!


When in Japan, be sure to...

Try Shabu Shabu, Okonomiaki, Kawara Soba (While in Yamaguchi prefecture) and Oolong Tea.


Hopes for the future...

We hope to become more like Jesus as we live and share the GOOD News of Christ's saving grace with people in Japan. We hope to see a "living" body of new believers established in Japan. We hope to spread a vision for reaching the whole world for Christ among people in the U.S.

Just 10 days after the devastating tsunami and earthquake of March 11, 2011, Pastor Itoh and the Christians from Izumi Gospel Chapel in Sendai began responding to the needs around them. God led them to a neighborhood in Higashi Matsushima, (one hour away) that hadn't been receiving food and supplies. That relationship has continued to grow.  Seven months later they began leasing a tsunami flooded building which they restored, providing a much needed community meeting place. Since 2012 Asian Access has been partnering with this ministry through the teamwork of Pastor Itoh and the Boehme family.

Items for victims of the tsunami

by Erik Boehme


Fellow A2 missionary Kent Muhling and I traveled to Rikuzentakata with a team from JIBC church from Oregon. Thankfully gasoline and food is available now in the outlying areas. Some roads and bridges are still destroyed but access is apparently becoming easier. When we arrived we set up a roadside bazzar to give away supplies. The word quickly spread and many people flocked to see what we had. The first things to go were the kerosene containers we brought. I wish we had brought more. But diapers, socks, t shirts, vegetables were all needed. It was a blessing to see how thankful everryone was to receive these things. I could tell that God had prepared the way for ...

Celebrating the 20th Anniversary of first arriving in Japan 

At this very moment on September 6, 1987 I was walking out of customs at Narita Airport in Tokyo to explore Japan for the first time.
