Mentored Internship: Tokyo City Team

Japan Tokyo Summer Internships Asia - East

**Summer internship applications for 2024 are closed. Please check back in the fall.**

Are you firmly rooted in your faith and willing to share it with Japanese people? Are you willing to learn and take risks, laugh at yourself, and try new things? Are you looking for exposure to cross-cultural ministry, to grow in leadership skills and your understanding of theology, but also to grow in love for Jesus, the Church, and the world? Do you want to be mentored in these areas?

This mentored "TCT" internship program in Tokyo will help you develop in these three areas:

  • (T) theological education: Grow in Bible knowledge with an emphasis on applying it in everyday life and ministry.

  • (C) cross-cultural ministry experience: Assist in the regular ministry of the Japanese Church with an emphasis on serving with new church plants. Mentoring will be provided as you grow in serving in a cross-cultural setting.

  • A one-on-one (T) training and mentoring: Interns will meet weekly with an assigned mentor who will develop a personalized growth plan for the summer. 

Ministry opportunities will vary depending on your interests and gifts, but some common activities will include things like teaching English classes, helping the Tokyo team run outreach events, initiating and building relationships especially with college students, sharing your faith with people you meet, tutoring missionary kids, assisting with church worship, and more. Your daily schedule will vary with some activities occurring in the evenings; you will be expected to proactively manage your time. You should be able to work with children. Riding a bike, playing an instrument, or speaking Japanese are plusses, but not required. 

Dates: June 1 through July 27
