Bring fly fishing and missions together to make more Japanese disciples of Christ


Cecil O’Dell

My life long passion has been to see the second largest least reached people group in our world, the Japanese, come to faith in Christ and to have a deep, abiding and fruitful walk with Him. More then 99% of the Japanese people do not know Jesus as their Savior. Through our Encompass Japanese Ministries we partner with those who seek to change this sad statistic. We have seen many become Disciples of Christ over the last 35 years of ministry and we are trusting God for more fruit, a bigger catch of disciples as we continue to Encompass the Japanese with the love and truth of Jesus Christ.

Fly Fishing is a fun way for me to share with you our vision and this partnership opportunity.

Having both a deep love (obsession) for fly fishing and a passion for making Japanese Disciples, I would love the opportunity to share both with you. I am seeking people who would like to learn the art of fly fishing and also learn about opportunities to partner with me in making more Japanese Disciples of Christ. I would love the chance to share this vision with you through the art of fly tying, fly rod building, fly rod casting and fly fishing trips together on the many pristine streams, rivers, and lakes in the beautiful California Eastern Sierra Mountains where we fish for Golden Trout, Brook Trout, Cut Throat Trout, Brown Trout, and of course the Rainbow Trout. Your chances of a Sierra Grand Slam (all five trout) on one of our trips could be possible. Click the TRIPS & TIPS link to take a look at the opportunities and trips.


It is all about the Fly, the Fish, and God's Beauty
