The Church’s Mission


Mission Nugget

ROBERTA STEPHENS – American Baptist Missionary in Japan

Born in Menlo Park, California, into a Christian home, Roberta grew up loving Jesus and loving sports! At age seven, when a missionary to Japan, Irene Webster Smith, visited her Sunday School class, God did double-duty in her life by bringing her salvation and giving her the desire to become a missionary someday. What struck Roberta to the core was the missionary’s statement, “If I hadn’t gone to Japan, many children might not ever have heard the story of Jesus.” Roberta couldn’t imagine that there were people in the world who had not heard the wonderful story of Jesus. In college she was able to meet and develop a relationship with students from abroad and her desire to go abroad as a missionary was heightened. After some other career explorations, Roberta prayed that God would send her anywhere God wanted and in a position where she would be dependent daily on divine guidance. In September, 1977, she went as an American Baptist Foreign missionary to Japan.
