We have a heart to see leaders raised up to impact the nations in the Asia region and to see churches planted around Asia that house the presence and the fire of God. We have a passion to raise up believers to live radical, passionate and real lives transforming and influencing the areas where God has placed them.

Michael ＆ Rachel Sawka
Mike and Rachel have been missionaries in Japan since 1999. Mike was raised in Japan as a missionary kid and Rachel was raised in the UK by parents who were Senior Pastors. They have been working with Ron & Teddy Sawka (Mike's parents) & the ministry they established in Japan since 1999. In 2004 Mike & Rachel took over leadership of the local church and in 2015 a network of churches in Japan called Arise5. In 2019, God led them to connect with Catch The Fire and with Ron & Teddy Sawka, they decided to join, as a network, and become a part of the Catch The Fire family. In April 2020, CTF Japan was established and later that year CTF Hong Kong and CTF Taiwan. Mike & Rachel became the senior leaders of the Catch the Fire Asia sphere in 2020.
