Opportunity Tracks

Short-term status applies to missionaries who intend to serve from 2 weeks to 8 months. During this time they are assigned to an existing ministry initiative to support and work towards achieving that ministry initiative's vision, under the supervision of the ministry initiative leader.  For those serving over three months, language and culture study requirements are a minimum of 3 hours per week. Other ministry opportunities which do not interfere with the primary assignment may be pursued by the short-term missionary after approval by the ministry initiative leader.

Mid-term status applies to missionaries who intend to serve from 9 months up to 3 years.  During this time they are assigned to an existing ministry initiative to support and work towards achieving that ministry initiative's vision, under the supervision of the ministry initiative leader.  Language and culture study requirements are a minimum of 10 hours per week, 3 of which are with a tutor.  Other ministry opportunities which do not interfere with the primary assignment may be pursued by the mid-term missionary after approval by the ministry initiative leader.

Long-term status applies to missionaries who intend to serve 3 or more years.  The initial assignment is to TEAM Japan's Learning & Development Ministry Initiative (LDMI) for intensive language and culture study until the prescribed levels of proficiency are achieved.  During this time they will consider future ministry opportunities in conjunction with TEAM Japan’s leadership, the potential ministry initiative team, and the sending church.

Who We Are

TEAM Japan missionaries are striving to bring hope to the nation of Japan. We have been working in Japan for more than 120 years, and currently have around 70 missionaries serving in various regions of the country. Our primary focus is church planting and around half of our missionaries are involved in church-planting ministries involving evangelism, discipleship, and church growth. The remaining half of our missionaries are involved in support ministries of various kinds such as administration, missionary kid (MK) education, Japanese language and cultural training, a retreat center, radio, literature, and family seminars.

TEAM has a passion to take the heart of God to the heart of Japan. Join us in sharing God’s heart with the Japanese. Learn who we are, then join us by praying for us. Join us by giving to individuals and projects. Learn where we work – and join us here!
