Joey Zorinsanga (Joey Zorina) is originally from N-E India, Mizoram, a 95 % christian state. Before Christ came into his life, Joey spent his life as a technical guitar player, working as a studio musician and Rock Street Journal correspondent. After an encounter with Jesus Christ, his life took a dramatic turn around and left the music scene entirely to pursue His call in vocational ministry. Joey graduated from a small intensive training school called- Harvest Bible Training Centre, India which changed his life completely. He responded to God’s call to Japan in 2004 to study at Tokyo Christian University where he completed Asian Christian Theological Studies (2008) program. His passion is in teaching and preaching the Bible.
Joey served as a theological student intern staff in Tokyo, Chiba and Nagoya, before moving to Noborito, Kawasaki City where he served as a full-time missionary-pastor. He is the founder and director of a gospel-centered, The Bridge Live, an outreach to Jazz musicians, while leading a missional group in Tokyo. He has also contributed worship music for Simple Sheep (Japanese band) in their 2nd and 3rd album.
Joey is currently on the writing staff for Duranno International Ministry with Living Life, a journal for reflection and spiritual formation published in English, Korean, Chinese and Japanese. He is gratefully married to Yisel, from Uruguay (South America). Yisel graduated from Heritage Bible College & Seminary (2006), Ontario, Canada. She taught kindergarten at International Christian Academy of Nagoya for 5 years before moving to Kawasaki with her husband in 2011. Yisel loves to reach out to Japanese ladies and host the group that meets at their home. She had the privilege to start a Kindergarten school for young families, which they handed over to the church.
