Build up the body of Christ. Support the Pentecost Offering.



Presbyterian World Mission has six mission co-workers serving in Japan. They are involved in evangelism, theological education, higher education, and youth and women ministries through our partnerships with organizations there. The Presbyterian World Mission priorities are ethnic minority and racial justice, foreign migrant workers, especially women in Japan, church unity and cooperation and justice for ethnic minorities in Japan. The Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) has had a presence in Japan since 1859.
