Ministry Opportunities to Go to Japan

Ok, so you're open to serving God in Japan as an individual, a team or a family. How do you go about it?

Asian Access offers some unique options, depending on what you want to do and how long you're available.

Check them out below!

Short-Term: 1-6 Weeks (year-round)

EnVision | 10-14 days

Do you already possess a strong sense of God's call to overseas ministry? Are you now trying to discern where, with whom and in what capacity? EnVision is designed to allow you to experience what it's like to be an Asian Access missionary in Japan. Serve alongside active missionaries, meet Japanese ministry partners, assist in evangelism, and experience firsthand our strategy for planting new churches. Take the opportunity to explore Japan, Asian Access, and God's call on your life.


J-Teams |1-6 weeks

J-Teams is an opportunity for a team of 3-5 people from your church or school to work with a Japanese church. You'll do community outreach through English classes, coffee houses, children's ministry, sharing testimonies, camp and other relationship-building activities. Team members' specific interest and abilities (music, drama, sports, cooking, etc.) can usually be incorporated into the ministry as well.

Mid-Term: 1-3 Years

Church Planting Associates

Church Planting Associates

Be a part of something bigger than yourself. Invest 1-3 years as a Church Planting Associate helping a new Japanese church grow! While ministering in a Japanese church, you will also meet regularly with an experienced church planting missionary. In the process, learn how to plant a church. Teach English conversation and use your own unique gifts and abilities to help your church to plant another congregation.

What better way can you spend a year after school? And you thought you were done learning. (No, you just started -- this is Missions 101.)

Long-Term: 4+ Years
Church Multiplication Teams

Church Multiplication Teams: So you've got some experience and feel called to Japan? You're in it for the long haul – hard core church planting in the trenches? Well that's great because Japan needs you and many more just like you. Church planting is not enough because it only adds churches. But Japan needs churches multiplied in an exponential way. Church Multiplication Teams is all about doing this in a way that honors the Japanese leadership. "Church Multiplication Teams" involve networks of like-minded pastors and missionaries, where leaders are developed and churches are multiplied.
