Mission Statement


“..Enabling Japanese and those of asian descent to be authentic disciples of Jesus Christ by creatively developing and providing ministry opportunities in partnership with churches. “

Since 1950, JEMS has been blessed by God to expand and include many faceted ministries that span the globe today. By the nature of its multi-faceted ministry and outreach into the world which is becoming increasingly multi and inter-racial, JEMS has expanded beyond just the Japanese and Japanese Americans. JEMS ministries now includes other Asian Americans. We are being enriched and empowered to be more effective for doing the work of evangelism, discipleship, teaching the Word, training, equipping, and unifying the believers and churches.

Vision Statement

“Jesus to every Japanese, Jesus every day.”

We are an organization committed to telling others about Jesus. We have a specific call to reach the Japanese, knowing that 99% of 128 million people in Japan do not know Jesus. (short/long-term missionaries). We also seek to reach the Japanese who no longer live in Japan, but in other countries such as Brazil, Argentina, Peru and here in the US.

We are also committed to help Christ followers deepen in their relationship with God. We seek to do so by reaching the college campuses through AACF, through Christian adult and youth conference experiences like Mount Hermon, short-term mission trips to Japan and South America, and concerts/sporting events geared toward sharing Jesus.
