Japan English Evangelism

You will enjoy the adventure of a lifetime as you travel to the other side of the world to teach English. You will spend your time on the island of Honshu which  is the largest and most populous island of Japan. The island separates the Sea of Japan, which lies to its north and west, from the North Pacific Ocean to its south and east.


Dates: June 17 – August 4, 2017Japan

Teen Missions Trip (ages 13-19)

Travel: After training at the Lord’s Boot Camp, you bus to the Orlando International Airport for a flight across the Florida Panhandle, Mississippi River, and the Rocky Mountains before arriving in San Francisco, California. From San Francisco you cross the North Pacific Ocean and the International Date Line to Osaka, Japan located on the island of Honshu. From the airport it is one hour to the church that will be hosting you for the summer.

Ministry: You will be involved in street evangelism sharing music, puppets, dramas and testimonies, along with visits to public schools, to invite people to learn English. Meeting people in parks through friendship evangelism with the goal to lead them to Christ, will be an added blessing to your ministry.

Adventure: You will visit the 16th–century shogunate Osaka Castle and learn about the rich history of the city, Namba, which is the city’s most famous district and finally, the Imperial capital of Japan, Kyoto Prefecture located in Kansai Region. You can shop for souvenirs such as tea, Japanese sweets, fans, origami paper and much more! 

Project Expense: $4690 U.S. plus $30 Registration Fee

  1. 2 questions:
    Do you have any ideas on how we can talk to our parents so they let us go on the trip?
    Are we responsible for scheduling our own airfare?

    • Meredith, If your parents have questions or concerns, they can call us and we will be glad to speak with them. You are responsible for your round-trip airfare to/from Florida. Your project expense covers your transportation once you arrive in Boot Camp.

  2. Is it to late too sign up?

  3. Hi!
    So I realize that part of the point of our trip is to be using English, but I also figure it can’t hurt to learn a little bit of Japanese before I go. (Who knows, maybe it can be a good way to get conversations going?) Mango Languages is a language learning resource that is available for FREE through many libraries across the country. Japanese is one of many languages that they offer. I’ve only been using it for a few weeks, but already I have found it to be exceptional. If you want to see if it is available through your library, you can check here: http://mangolanguages.com/libraries/find-mango/
    Japanese note: Don’t be scared off by the new alphabet, it will help you with pronunciation and you can learn to say the words, if not read them. Sayonara!

  4. Made a facebook group called TMI Japan 2017! Anyone who is planning on going can join. 🙂

  8. Hey, so i just signed up for the team and i was wondering for anyone else that is also signed up , if you would like to start a group chat on instagram or facebook i could make a japan team instagram, let me know. I am a ftmer (former team member ) and last year some of the people on my team did this and we got talk to eachother before and pray for eachother , and it was a good way to already have some friends when you get there.

    • Hi! My daughter is signed up for this trip and would love that, I’m sure! She’s only on Instagram. @faithisfaithful is her handle. Thanks for suggesting that idea!
      How did you find others who were signed up for your trip last year?

  9. Hello! I am very interested in this trip and also the trip to China. What do I need to do or what steps do I take for information about these trips and learn more about Teen Missions International? Thank You so much and I’m excited to see if the Lord is calling me to be apart of one of these trips!

    • Malia, Please go to our website and there will be a short description of each team. We are working on writing brochure copy and after that time, a more detailed description will be available. You may register online!

      • I thought this *was* the website…? Sorry, I’m confused! Could you post a link to what you’re referring to please? THANKS a bunch 🙂

        • Kim, What was your question? I am sorry – but I am answering a lot of questions and cannot find your original question except for the vaccine one (none are required for Japan).

  10. When will more information about the trip be available?

  11. Kimberly Moteberg

    My comment on the FAQ page was erased somehow. My daughter and I are praying about this trip to Japan and would like more info on the issue of vaccines. Would you be able to tell me whether or not Teen Missions Intl. has their own vaccine requirements? Here in the state of MN, we are allowed to and have chosen to personally exempt our children from any and all vaccines and, as such, we do not have a shot record to provide.
    I’m beginning to read into what vaccines, if any, are required for travel to Japan. If there are any, we are willing to cross that bridge. I want to be able to address this issue from all sides, not just the overseas travel. Thanks for any help you could give!

    • Kimberly, No vaccines are required by Japan or by us. We would need to know what you would want us to do in the case where your child might need a tetanus vaccine.

  12. Hi, I was just wondering if the leaders for this team have already been picked?

  13. My son is interested in this trip or the Korea trip. Do we just register or what steps do we take?

  14. I am also interested but will need more info.

  15. I am interested on going to Japan in summer 2017. Do you have any more information about this trip?
