Now is the time to start making plans. 

Here's how you can get started.

    1. Start praying about Japan and your involvement. Ask God to give you a heart for Japan and its people.
    2. Find out more. Read more on this website, then email us at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. Tell us you're interested in possibly bringing a team to Japan.
    3. Talk to a missions pastor or staff sponsor about your desire to bring a team to Japan. We can contact them with information if they would like to know more.
    4. If you feel led to try putting a team together from your church or school to flood the streets of Japan with the Gospel, This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. for resources on How To Recruit A Team. A team should be composed of 3-5 people from your church or school (college age and up). Each team member must have a love for people, a strong understanding of the Gospel, and a desire to share it. English is the only language necessary. No one will have to be fluent in Japanese. (What a relief!) Of course, we'll teach you a few key phrases, you know, to help you find the restroom or to meet and greet people.
    5. You'll need to get together a game plan for how your team can raise support. We have some training materials will help give you the tools and ideas you need to get on your way. With our materials to provide guidance, before you know it, you'll have a team in Japan tackling the Great Commission during an exciting summer overflowing, bursting with life.
    6. Keep praying and pray some more. 

This year, teams are being sent to churches across Japan, and you can go too! There is someone in Japan waiting to hear the gospel from you and your team.
