There are many ways you can serve and help to reach the Japanese for Christ. Read below to find out the various ways you can help us share God’s love with those who would otherwise never hear of their Savior.


Native English speaking missionaries have the unique opportunity to draw many to churches through teaching English. Most Japanese would not naturally go to a church to seek help during a time of need, but if they are connected through English and a relationship of trust can be established, the church has the opportunity to speak deeply into their lives.

Let us know in what ways the Lord is calling you to serve,


Many Japanese churches lack the resources or know-how to develop effective media tools, despite being in such a technologically advanced country. If the Lord has put media work in Japan on your heart we would love to work with you.


There are countless ways to serve the Japanese people, even remotely through translation, proofreading and even missionary care. Let us know if the Lord has placed another area of ministry on your heart,

Japan Mission is always in need of:
