English School Ministry

First started in 1989 with one class and five students, the Tokyo/Chiba Team’s English school has been a significant component of the team’s ministry and outreach. Currently, the English school operates at six different locations and has over two hundred students. Through these English classes, many Japanese people have been presented with the gospel for the very first time.

The adult English classes last 90 minutes. The first hour is dedicated to English practice and the last 30 minutes is an optional Bible study. We have classes for students at all levels of English proficiency. In our Bible study, we teach the students basic truths of Christianity through reading the Bible and helping the students become familiar with its teachings.

To teach English classes, one does not need any particular education requirements or degrees. Any native speaker of English with a willingness to learn and with a love for the Japanese people can do this.
