We make disciples in all our ministries with the aim of starting and building up churches that reproduce. We have recently established a forward base in the Tohoku disaster area and are using it to launch teams into neighboring prefectures to do long-term recovery work.
Japan is gripped by materialism, ancestor worship, and group conformity. Most consider Christianity a good, but irrelevant, foreign religion and firmly resist the call to follow Christ. We proclaim Christ through personal evangelism, Bible studies, conversational English classes, soccer, cooking classes, concerts, camping, and youth outreach. Japanese language proficiency and cultural understanding are big challenges for us.
