One of the most secularized nation in the world, Japan’s population in Christianity only remains around 1%. While it is difficult to see people knowing God personally in this nation, it also means for those who seeks to know God in this nation are genuine in their faith, wanting to know God personally despite their family opposition and views of others.From 15th century to now, God has been calling his people to reach his people in Japan. Come join to plant the seeds of Gospel and witness his work in Japan.

War. Communism. A heaping bowl of noodles. Perhaps these are the things that first come to mind when you first think of SEA. But, in recent years, the country has grown through open doors and economic reforms. General stability within the country has risen as the country has strayed from its stringent Communist ideals.
Buddhism, Taoism and Confucianism have strongly influenced the religious and cultural life of the people. About 85% of the people from SEA identify with Buddhism, though not all practice on a regular basis. Although the people of SEA are familiar with Christianity because of the country’s ties with the Western world, only about 8% of the population call themselves Christians.Friendly students await conversations. Come and experience the Holy Spirit as He arranges divine appointments with various students.
