Okinawa Japan

Dates: August 10-20, 2012

Ministry opportunities:

This is our 10th annual mission trip to Japan! This year we will be working with the organization Christian Surfers Japan (CSJ), and the local churches in OkinawaCSJ has an amazing network of awesome believers in Okinawa and we look forward to working with them again this year.

Some of the ministry opportunities include helping out at a community Stand Up Paddle competition, passing out free WOW DVD’s to the local surfers, surf coaching etc. The main event will be the premiere of Walking On Water’s latest film Promised Land so much of our work in the days leading up to this event will involve promoting. Last time we were in Okinawa we had our biggest surf movie night in Japan with about 300 people coming and hearing the gospel! We hope for a similar turn out this year.

Japan is one of the least reached countries in the world with the gospel, as less than 1% of the population believes in Jesus. There are over 2 million surfers in Japan which means that there are more surfers than Christians. This is  a great opportunity to use your love for surfing to reach the lost!

Approximate Cost:

We are still working on the final details of the cost of the trip but it will be approximately $1200-1500.  This cost includes food, lodging, transportation, materials etc for the entire time we are in Okinawa. You will be responsible for purchasing your own airfare to Okinawa.
