Our Aim and Identity
We want to serve Christ among Japanese worldwide. Our goal is to help make a significant difference in the progress of the gospel among the Japanese people over the first half of this century. We seek to do this through educating, encouraging and equipping the Body of Christ so that, more and more, through an expanding network of people, the good news of Jesus Christ will be proclaimed clearly, and disciples of Jesus Christ multiplied, among the Japanese people, for his glory. (Matthew 28:19-20)
We are interdenominational and international, with missionaries from several other countries as well as from the UK, working among Japanese in the UK and in Japan. Unusually, our vision specifically includes building and encouraging a network of part-time volunteers – ordinary Christians reaching out to Japanese expatriates in their local area.
Opportunities for Involvement
These include full-time roles (both short & long-term) in Japan, UK or elsewhere, volunteer roles, prayer and financial support. You do not have to speak Japanese, just to want to reach the Japanese people for Christ. You can work with Japanese where you are, or even consider going to Japan where appropriate. For more information please see the separate pages giving more details on how you could become involved with JCL either through Prayer, Giving or other Opportunities.
