Biographical history

Jun Kabayama was born July 11, 1895 in Kagoshim-Ken, Japan. He took Commerce at Kansai Gakuin College. Following graduation in 1919, he joined the Japanese Army for one year before taking a job at the Public Department at Kobe City Hall before returning to Tokyo to attend Kansai Gakuin and learn under Dr. Armstrong. In 1923 he moved to Shizuoka and worked at a Mission Centre, and as Deputy Director of the Shizuoka Home of Inomiya. In 1924 he was asked by the Japanese Methodist Church to become a missionary. He was ordained by the Northern Division of the Japanese Methodist Church in 1929 and invited to come to Canada by the superintendent of the Home Mission Board of Orientals of the United Church of Canada. He served in Ocean Falls from 1929-1942, and was then forcefully relocated under the War Measures Act into an internment camp in British Columbia. He was then relocated and worked in Lethbridge, Alta (1942-1952); Okanagan Japanese (1952-1963); and Fraser Valley Japanese (1963-1965). Kabayama retired in 1965 and died in 1979.
