Hirofumi Masuyama is the Lead Pastor of 21st Century Christ Church in Tokyo, Japan. With his beginnings in the business world, he founded a human resources company which he operated for 20 years. The company went public in 2008 and has grown to become one of Japan's largest human resources companies. He ultimately sold the business and founded the 21st Century Church in 2012, where he is currently active as a pastor. Pastor Hirofumi Masuyama values standing with Israel as the source of his grace. He believes that the greatest power to support Israel is to "pray for the peace of Jerusalem", as is written in the Bible, and he is thus actively involved in intercessory prayers for Israel with churches in Japan.
