May 12, 2010: Belhaven Connections is the musical missions arm of the Belhaven University Department of Music. Belhaven students, faculty and staff members are traveling to Tokyo, Japan, May 12-26. Japan is among the most musically literate cultures of the world. Musical events in Japan are ideal relationship building opportunities and help to lay the groundwork to establishing evangelical Bible studies that can be the basis for establishing new churches.

Belhaven Connections will partner with Roger and Abi Lowther (’98 graduate), full-time musical missionaries with Mission to the World, helping them to plant a church in Tokyo Station. This area of Tokyo has the political power of Washington D.C., the media power of Hollywood, and the financial power of Wall Street. Please, keep the Belhaven team in your prayers as they minister in Japan.

Belhaven University, formerly Belhaven College, prepares men and women academically and spiritually to serve Christ Jesus in their careers, in human relationships, and in the world of ideas. Founded in 1883, the University now serves over 3,000 students from campuses in Jackson, Memphis, Orlando, Houston, and online.
