He faithfully kept AACCS afloat in times of challenge and difficulties. He always supplied incredible gifted and committed therapists and helped us train a host of new Christian counselors. He provided faithful, humble believers to serve as Board Members. In the midst of our closing, the Lord provided avenues to continue the Komae Scholarship Fund (KSF) and our Missionary Outreach Fund for Member Care (MOF).

What evolved from these meetings was a vision to create a professional counseling service to serve the members of these churches and the larger community. By 1986, through the generous funding of the American Baptist Churches USA, local Asian American churches, and private donations, the Asian American Christian Counseling Service (AACCS) incorporated and opened its doors as a non-denominational, 501(c)3 non-profit agency.

In 1979 a group of young mental health professionals attending Evergreen Baptist Church in Los Angeles began meeting as a support group. Each member had independently found their way to worship at Evergreen. They represented about 10% of Evergreen's congregation at the time. Recognizing a divine significance because of their numbers, Pastor Cory Ishida encouraged this group to meet regularly for spiritual and professional support.
