Business Start-Up

The Position

There are many Japanese Christians who are looking for a job that would allow them to work and still have time for church and ministry. We are interested in having creative entrepreneurs join us and seek innovative ways of providing income as well as reaching out into the community. The ideal candidate is a self-starter who is willing to do the hard work of learning the language and culture.

The Need

Most Japanese people have never met a Christian, seen a Bible, and do not know about Jesus. In fact, just two percent of Japan's 128 million people claim to be Christians. In the future, there is risk for half of the existing Christian churches to close their doors, as Japanese pastors are aging and without replacements due to the increasingly agnostic and secular younger generation. The missionary presence continues to dwindle as well.

We need teammates with fresh ideas, deep relationship-building skills, and perseverance regardless of how fruitful the results may appear. ABWE would like to grow the team in Tokyo, and is seeking missionaries equipped for church planting, ministry to the deaf community, and teaching English as a second language. These valuable evangelistic skills can build bridges into Japan’s communities. Will you press on toward that goal with us?

The Impact

Use your business mind to change hearts. At ABWE, we use small businesses to reach communities with Christ’s love by giving jobs and skills to people in need. From a bag factory to a sewing ministry, these unique business ministries are reaching entire communities and enabling us to disciple workers and share the gospel in areas of the world where Jesus’ name is widely unknown. We need innovative, business-minded people who are passionate about reaching others for Christ.
