OM Japan Christmas outreach

Less than 0.5% of Japanese regularly attend a church. Upwards of 90% have never heard about Jesus; who he is, what he has done, why he was born as a baby. The aim of this outreach is to reach out to the Japanese people with the wonderful message of our Saviour through gospel become man for our sakes. This gospel really is good news for the Japanese, so come and share it with them and be part of what God is doing amongst them.

Do you have a passion for evangelism? Do you consider yourself a gifted administrator and do you enjoy this work? Then come and joy the Christmas outreach in Japan.

Ministry details
:

Our outreach focus is loving message among participants’ heart and their lips on sharing hope through this time with people from all backgrounds. In partnership with other churches, Christian and Non-Christian, we seek to shape Japan society for Christ. We hope that non-Christian visit and come to the church easily through Christmas outreach. We also have a purpose to know Christmas of meaning to Japanese people. They don’t know real meaning of ‘’Christmas’’ even they celebrate it. They are very influenced by commercialism so that they exchange gifts among families and couples. Their purpose is just to satisfy themselves. Eating cake on Christmas became part of their custom, too. It has nothing to do with Jesus or churches. We see how much they are influenced by the world values and keep them away from Jesus.

* Prepare a testimony.
* We will sing some Christmas songs.
If participant wants to play a musical instrument, She/ He can bring a her/his own.
