Japan

Less than 1% of Japan’s 126 million know Jesus.

By God’s grace we aim to see a vibrant church impacting every community.

The Task Unfinished in Japan

Nearly 500 towns or villages don’t have a church. Only about 0.45% of the people in areas where OMF works are Christians.

God is at work in Japan, but we long for many more to be reached for Jesus. Be part of what God is doing and join us in praying for and serving the Japanese.

In East Asia there are

667 MILLION people

without access to the gospel.

Christian community is vital for Japanese returnees

Japanese who return to Japan after encountering Christianity overseas need to find Christian friends in Japan to help them go on in the faith.

Keeping the faith: from English to heart language

This missionary couple were shocked when a new Japanese Christian they met in the US was troubled by encountering Christianity in her heart language.

Japanese ministry can happen outside Japan

Janet, a future missionary in Japan, found she could do ministry with Japanese even before she left home. This experience helped her prepare to go to Japan.

Partnering in training in Japan

Training across organisations can be challenging. Workers from OMF Japan’s offices and a university student ministry spent two days together learning how their roles fit into the bigger picture of God’s mission of reaching Japan.
