Since our beginnings, we have been driven by a deep conviction that everyone should have the opportunity to hear the gospel at least once. Sadly, there are still thousands of peoples and communities that have never heard about Jesus, ever. Do you share our passion for these people to hear of His fame and renown? We are looking for you, and many more like you, to join us on this journey to see vibrant communities of Jesus followers established among the least reached all over the world.

Language: Language learning is required, and language proficiency will be evaluated after the
first year. For near culture missionaries (such as those from Asia), language learning takes at
least 1 year if studied full time, and for far culture missionaries, it could take up to 2
years. Therefore, we strongly advise those coming to attain a JLPT (Japanese Language
Proficiency Test) N5 level before arriving in Japan.

Driving Licence: We require to have driving licence before coming to Japan, the international
license is only valid for the first year so they need to transfer to Japanese driving license
within the first year.

Working In Teams: All new missionaries must be willing to work within a team; to serve,
learn, and grow together. As our teams are made up of people from different cultures and
theological backgrounds, an open attitude and willingness to accept one other within the
team are vital. You will also need to be flexible in your expectations, and willing to learn to
do things "outside the box" of what you think ministry is supposed to look like. As OM Japan,
we are looking at creative approaches to reach this least reached nation.

Serving opportunities are unsalaried. Most people joining OM raise financial support to cover their living expenses, usually through gifts from home churches and other supporters.
