Opportunity

ESL Teacher

The Position

There are many Japanese of all ages who desire to begin learning or increase their fluency in English. Most of the current church plants in Japan would benefit from having an ESL teacher available to reach out into the community. The ideal candidate would be a disciple-maker able to teach English to all ages as well as lead bible studies with students as they developed an interest in the Gospel.


Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, ABWE has canceled most international travel originating from the U.S. until the State Department drops the Global Health Advisory to a Level 2 or lower. However, please email our Mobilization team at go@abwe.org to discuss service opportunities and exceptions. We would love to talk with you!​

The Need

Of the 126 million people in Japan, less than 1 percent know Jesus Christ. In fact, many have never met a Christian or touched a Bible. There are even people who have never heard of Christ. The few churches that exist in the region are fading, as they are small with aging leadership and members. The darkness continues to spread as the number of Japanese missionaries declines.

While the outlook is bleak, the message of God is strong. You can share your innovative ideas and use your God-given people skills to build key relationships, partnerships that uplift the community and bring lasting change. If you believe in Christ and have the passion to fight for His light in the country, we need you.
