Missionary with PAZ International
I'm Seth Quant — Missionary serving as Director of Choose Life with PAZ International in Kawasaki, Japan (A stone's throw from Tokyo). My passion is to serve Japanese people struggling with depression and suicide so they can discover hope, confidently choosing life in Christ.

I believe focusing on a thriving relationship with God gives joyful meaning to this life, and exceedingly more in the life to come. Finding my own freedom and hope in Christ, I'm excited to share with others.

Beyond Ministry
When I need a break, I'll grab some of my family group members or text the friends I've made over the last few years and have some fun! Recently, I've been organizing a monthly outing to challenge the rotating series of puzzle and escape rooms at Tokyo Mystery Circus. Otherwise you can find me in the gym. I love the mountains of Japan. Our missionary team hits the ski slopes in winter and grabs a Yamanakako Chalet for our fall retreat. No one is surprised if I pull out the occasional board game or card game, it's always good fun. Solo, occasionally with friends, you can catch me trekking around Noborito on a sunny day or clear evening.

Help Save Lives on the Line

You can help by saving lives in Tokyo effected by suicide. Your support turns tragedy into testimonies founded on true freedom in Christ.
