1. Who is a Good Fit for Ministry in Japan?

Watch the brief video to see what kinds of people we're looking for...



2. Are you comfortable raising financial support?

Please note that SIM missionaries raise financial support. We trust God to provide and we will assist you in the support raising process! If this is a concern for you, our recruitment team will be happy to discuss this process with you further.

3. Ready to take the next step? Here's how to get started!

If after watching the video clip, you're interested in pursuing an application for ministry, the next step is to complete a contact form with SIM. The form is coordinated by and followed up by SIM, as part of our strategic partnership for Japan.

To begin your journey, read these instructions first:

  1. Fill out the contact form on the SIM website.
    • When completing the form, be sure to indicate that you're interested in "serving in Japan" and that you found the contact form via go2japan.org. You can write this within the optional "Message" field or where it says: "Tell us about your interest in cross-cultural ministry". You can also mention our Japan recruiter Bethany Ho.
    • Please note that this does not guarantee a Japan placement, but just helps SIM know how you came to them. 
  2. When on the SIM website, you will also be able to find different SIM regional websites that you can visit to learn more.

We look forward to hearing your story and talking together about where God is calling you to serve.

4. Email us to let us know you are applying.
