Opportunity

Graphic Designer

The Position

Due to the ongoing global COVID-19 crisis, ABWE is limiting international travel of short-term missionaries originating from the US and assessing the level of risk per country per US State Department guidelines. To inquire about travel restrictions or exceptions, please contact go@abwe.org. We would love to talk to you!


From flyers for events to tracts personalized for a church, a graphic designer is helpful for projects in most churches. The Japan team is looking for a graphic designer to come alongside and take projects to the next level. Church website logos, video intros, and more are on the list of projects that could use a professional hand. A graphic designer joining the team would be expected to be a disciple-maker as well, using all available gifts and talents to reach out and connect with people.

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 visual or written communications skills on the mission field. Whether it's through writing, videography, social media, or publishing Christian resources, our missionaries need help telling their stories, challenging their audiences, and encouraging the Body of Christ.
