Asian Access is pleased to announce that Robert Adair has been named j-Teams Coordinator. The new position, officially created on June 1, 2009 is expected to provide further momentum to mobilize more short-term workers to serve in local churches across Japan.
Adair brings much experience to his new post. He has served as both a member and a team leader of different j-Teams in central Japan, as well as a Church Planting Associate for in Kyushu.
Peter Thomson, Director of Japan Missionary Personnel shared his appreciation for Adair:
"Robert's four years of experience in Japan, and having led multiple short-term teams to Japan, uniquely equip him to serve in this key role. As almost all long-term missionary staff first serve Asian Access and Japan as short-term missionaries, we can not understate the importance of this position. Robert will help recruit and train teams, coordinate the continued development of training materials, and help us mobilize the next generation of missionaries."
The j-Teams program deploys anywhere from 1-6 people from the same church or school to serve alongside a Japanese church. Since 1994, j-Teams have helped Japanese churches engage their communities in creative outreach.
For questions regarding j-Teams, or for enquiries, please contact Robert directly:
In addition to this new role, Robert is currently working toward an M.A. in Intercultural Studies at Wheaton College.
