Research, Design and providing of evangelism tool, local church support
Story of OneHope Japan
Since 2001, we have been serving the Japanese church with scripture engagement tools for children and youth.
Our partners have reached over 1.5 million using OneHope products. These tools have been developed in Japan based on research and partner requests.
It is our desire to work with ministry partners to provide products that are clear and relevant to Japanese youth and children today.
We believe that research is integral to effectively bringing God's Word to children and youth.
We research and analyze the reality and trends of each culture and generation as well as movements within the church, upon which we build a strategy to fulfill the mission we have been given.
For example, in 2014, we interviewed teens in Harajuku in Shibuya to learn about their worldview, lifestyle and their view of Christianity
to learn how to design our evangelism tools.
In 2016, we did a nationwide research project to comprehensively study the church's approach to children's ministry.
We interviewed Ps. Nozomi Nishimura from Jesus Family, who passionately leads a vibrant ministry for children.
Support for the local church and for Christian ministries
The only way for God's Word to reach every child is through partnership with the local church.
That is why OneHope provides evangelism material to the local church, for them to use in their communities.
We also have programs like the Kids Bible Club and the Flyer Design Campaign to support the local church.
We also work alongside many Christian ministries and conferences as well.
