Living History

We are fortunate to have so many records of God’s story among us written and spoken by the original planters of our churches. This page is a resource for you to hear their story directly from them.  All of these resources will grow as we add more content.


Many of the origin stories of our movement are told in these podcast interviews.

ICOC Living History Interviews

Irene shares the amazing story of how God used George and her to start a church in Tokyo immediately after World War II through their years as leaders in missions and then moving to Boston to help with the rapidly growing ministry in 1984.

Irene covers the years of 1984-1999 as the Gurganuses returned to Tokyo with Frank and Erica Kim to build the Tokyo International Church of Christ.
