Rev. Dan Iverson

MTW Missionary, Japan

Dan grew up being discipled in ministry before he became a Marine infantry officer, serving initially in Japan. 

After seven years in the Marines, God led Dan and his wife Carol to Reformed Seminary. God impressed on them a central Bible theme they had missed, God’s heart for all nations. A team of four couples formed during seminary. Three Japanese pastors invited the team to come work together in East Tokyo to plant churches in churchless cities and to start a presbytery. The four couples each initially committed to 12 years in Japan. The Iversons arrived in 1986 with five children.

In 2018, Dan retired as pastor from the church they planted in 1992. He now serves as Tokyo/Chiba team leader, and as MTW Japan Director. He and Carol have been married since 1976 and have nine children with 29 grandchildren.
