Hi everyone! My name is Brian Chase, Database Administrator at SDHS. This is my 3rd year. What a joy and ministry it is to be here!
I received a Bachelor of Arts degree in Christian Education from Eastern Nazarene College, which focused on Christian Education for Children/Youth/Adults, Church Administration and TESOL.
In addition, I received a Master of Arts degree in Missions from Tokyo Christian University, which emphasized building bridges cross-culturally as well as cross-cultural communication with the Gospel message as a foundation.
I was born and raised in New Hampshire. Having also lived in Japan for 10 years as a high school student and seminarian, I have the ability to speak and read the Japanese language fluently. I thoroughly enjoy using OS systems interchangeably in both English and Japanese among iPhone 6, MacBook Pro, and Web-Based SIS/SMS/CMS systems.
These domestic and international educational experiences have provided invaluable direction to me in my prior non-profit & church positions as a pastor, Director of District Operations, Director of Student Information & Data Services, Director of District Work & Witness (student work projects and teams), and Coordinator of Special Ministry to Japanese (SMJ). I have also had the honor of serving as On-Site 9/11 Disaster Director for the Metro NY District Church of the Nazarene from 2001-2003.
