Pastor Chuck Robb
Chuck was born and raised in Savannah, GA and attended the US Naval Academy in Maryland. After graduating, he served as a US naval officer for six and half years. Three years prior to separating from the US Navy, he started attending Calvary Chapel Kamakura which was close to the US Navy base in Yokosuka where he was stationed. There, Chuck learned the Bible as it is and was touched by the love of God through the Christians at Calvary Chapel Kamakura. As a result, he prayed to receive Jesus Christ as his personal Savior and Lord. After separating from the Navy, Chuck moved to Okinawa with Yumi to serve at Calvary Chapel Ginowan and also taught at Calvary Chapel Bible College Japan.
After graduating from high school, Yumi studied at college in Atlanta, GA. During this time the Lord brought many Christians into her life. Yumi experienced the love of God through them and decided to become a Christian. After college, while working for a Japanese company, she began attending a Calvary Chapel in a suburb of Atlanta. After returning to Japan, Yumi attended Calvary Chapel Kamakura before attending Calvary Chapel Bible College in Murrieta, CA as well as in Vajta, Hungary and studied the Bible and missions. After Bible College, Yumi returned to Japan and soon met Chuck at Calvary Chapel Kamakura. They later got married and moved to Okinawa to serve at Calvary Chapel Ginowan and Calvary Chapel Bible College Japan as missionaries.
After the earthquake and tsunami on March 11, 2011, Chuck and Yumi went on relief trips to Ishinomaki, Minamisanriku, and Higashimatsushima. They served dinners, distributed relief items, and held concerts. In October of 2011, they moved to Higashimatsushima and continued relief work as missionaries. On top of that, they started an English School and an outreach cafe. They are now planting a Calvary Chapel in Higashimatsushima.
