OMF Japan distinctives
We have missionaries from more than 12 nationalities; from their 20s to their 60s. Our missionaries come from a variety of evangelical backgrounds.
Language and culture
We have our own language and culture learning centre. We live side-by-side with Japanese people and plant Japanese churches.
We have been in Japan for more than 70 years.
We look after, pray for, and support one another. We have missionaries in support roles.
Types of ministry
We believe a long-term way to reach Japan is to start churches. Many of our missionaries work in missionary church
planting teams, or alongside Japanese pastors and evangelists in churches. We're also involved in the revitalisation of struggling churches.
Some of our missionaries work in support roles. These workers are essential to OMF's effectiveness and the ability of our missionaries to serve long-term. Some of their roles include finance, TCK care, medical, and pastoral care.
