About Us

Tim grew up in Japan with his dad and mom being missionaries there. In 1999 he went to serve on a short-term basis while his brother Phil and later his dad were home on furlough. The Meltons soon came to see that the Lord wanted them to serve in Japan full-time. They left for Japan on November 21, 2005, after a 3 year deputation. Bekah Kuehlman, a Northland graduate, has joined their ministry in Nagoya. The Meltons minister through youth group activities, the monthly ladies’ Bible study, and at Calvary Baptist Church as well as its daughter church Nagoya International Baptist Church. Their summer ministries are church fellowships, children’s camps, and family camps. Tim is also working on developing counseling resources by translating them into Japanese for use in the ministry along with translating gospel tracts and writing and printing one of his own.
