Program Details

Who should consider EnVision?

The ideal candidates for EnVision are individuals/couples who are already called into full-time cross-cultural ministry, hopefully very interested in Japan and church planting. We will be looking for individuals/couples qualified for Missional Partner Associates. Participants may include college students, Urbana delegates, A3 j-Teams alumni, professional couples exploring the option of missions, people who are set on ministering in Japan, or people who have been a part of a church plant in the U.S. and are considering planting churches overseas. If you're not quite there yet, please consider j-Teams.


What is EnVision?

EnVision is designed to allow people already called to missions to experience in a short amount of time what it's like to be a missionary in Japan. In less than 2 weeks, we'll visit church planting networks, take cultural plunges, join missionaries for their various ministries, attend services at Japanese churches, stay with missionaries and locals, and get a feel for what it would be like to go back longer term. You'll also attend some excellent seminars given by A3 staff and missionaries regarding Japan, church planting, and discerning God's call on your life. You'll have an opportunity to observe, engage, reflect, and seek God's direction.


When will EnVision take place?

EnVision is fairly open, depending upon your own availability, as well as that of the hosting missionaries helping to coordinate your time in Japan.


How much will it cost?

Costs will vary, depending on length and location. For example, the support costs for a recent trip was $1700 + the international flight.
