WorldVenture in Japan is called JBF (Japan Baptist Fellowship). We consist of missionaries from USA – WorldVenture, Canada – Fellowship International Mission, and international partners from Europe and Asia.
JBF has been in Japan for almost 70 years in church planting. As a result, we work alongside our National Church Association (called the Hoshu Baputesto Domei) with about 80 churches.
As a field our purpose is to build up the local church. To stay relevant in the changing times, JBF organizationally has transitioned to 3 Teams: Church Multiplication Team; Innovative Ministries Team; Support Ministry Team. As God calls out new types of missionaries, we are here to validate, equip, and unleash them for effective ministry to the Japanese.
