Building authentic friendships with Japanese people

We offer authentic friendship to Japanese people wherever we encounter them.  

Learning more about Japanese life and culture

We value the enrichment that comes from encounters with Japanese life and culture through language, story,  and other types of exchanges, including sports—all revealing the hearts and minds of Japanese and their place in this world.



Addressing the spiritual needs of Japanese people

The spiritual needs of Japanese people are similar those of other nations throughout the world: the need to connect by faith with the God who created them, forgiveness, redemption, peace, hope, and the restoration of relationships. We respectfully minister to these and other spiritual needs by forming authentic friendships, while using ESL and Gospel Story-arc evangelism.
