HOW IT BEGAN
After World War II, Japanese-American churches were dispersed and discouraged, and there arose a great need for mutual fellowship and encouragement. In 1950, a group of nisei pastors met and prayed at Mount Hermon for the spiritual awakening among the Japanese-American churches. Out of this gathering, the first JEMS Mount Hermon summer conference was born.
MOUNT HERMON TODAY
While JEMS Mount Hermon started out with just the youth camp in 1950, it has since expanded to six divisions. We now have the Family, Jr. High, Inter High, Sr. High, College, and Special Camps. Additionally, our JEMS Mount Hermon family has grown to include all Asian-Americans, not just Japanese-Americans.
God has used this ministry to bring many to faith. He has also given many the call to ministry at our camps. Apart from this, He has created a community of believers from across the country, and across denominations, who gather annually to encourage each other in their faiths. We thank God for all the numerous ways that He has used this ministry to bless His people.
We hope that you will join our JEMS Mount Hermon family!
