Japan Initiative

Japanese Returnee Project


Focuses on ministering to Japanese who have immigrated to the United States to learn about Christ while finding a place they can have cultural familiarity. When they go back to Japan, we encourage them to find full faith in Christ and place them under thriving Japanese churches bac in their home country to share the gospel.
