Opportunity

Nursing Home Care Worker

The Position

The aging population of Japan has led to a shortage of nursing care workers. Although workers have been coming from SE Asia, there is still more demand than available workers. The Japan team is looking for courageous missionaries who will see the opportunity and commit to the difficult task of becoming licensed to work as a nursing care worker in Japan.

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 love for the less fortunate on the mission field. Social welfare ministries create countless opportunities to share Christ with brokenhearted people, many of whom may not otherwise welcome our message. Use social welfare ministries to change lives, open hearts, and share the gospel.
