Church Partnerships

We work with local Japanese church leadership to aid in the establishment and growth of the church.  Using our unique skills, interests, and passions, we facilitate opportunities to spread the gospel and invest in the spiritual lives of Japanese believers.  

Evangelism and Discipleship Ministries

Japanese people need Christ.  We are very conscious of being available to the Lord, using our gifts so many will find Him and then grow into a deep, personal relationship with Him.

Karuizawa Retreat Center (KRC)

We use retreat center facilities for God’s people to find rest and relaxation so they are ready to return to their ministry physically, spiritually and emotionally refreshed.  We also prepare people for ministries throughout Japan, and host events such as church camps, counseling opportunities, seminars and conferences so people’s lives can be enriched, both personally and professionally.

Learning and Development Ministry Initiative (LDMI)

This ministry initiative seeks to provide learning and development opportunities for all TEAM Japan missionaries.

Media Ministries

In order to support the growth of the local church in Japan, we have established a number of ministries which produce various forms of media and teaching.  Our desire is to use all means possible to reach different groups of Japanese people in the best way possible through these resources.

Returnee and Diaspora Ministry

We desire to see new Japanese Christians continue strong in their faith when returning from overseas, and be used by God to see them reach out to others.  Relationship building is essential to see returnees connected with local churches and with each other so they can be effectively discipled to live out their vibrant faith before others.

Takamatsu Ministry Initiative (TMI)

We are a network of nine churches, planting and nurturing reproducing churches through English conversation classes, music, cooking classes, street evangelism, parenting meetings and lots more.

Tokyo Metro Ministry Initiative (TMMI)

​We have started our vision of establishing innovative churches in Tokyo with a café in a lively area of downtown Tokyo.  Our café provides a non-threatening environment for us to use as a spring board for relational evangelism which is incarnational, living and meeting the people in the local community at their point of need.
