Welcome to New Christian Friend Ministry Website!

<Important Notice> (February 12, 2023)

It has been about 10 years  since Christian Friend Ministry was launched in March 2013. In the beginning, we received very few inquiries, but around September 2014, one year and six months after we started, the number of inquiries and consultations increased rapidly.

The spread of the new coronavirus began in December 2019, and social life has changed dramatically in Japan. Opportunities for people to have face-to-face contact have drastically decreased, and instead, opportunities for network(online) communication have increased.

Even before the spread of the new coronavirus, Christian Friend Ministry has been providing online counseling and Bible study services.

As Japan becomes a super-aging society, Christians are expected to age without exception, and the number of members of Christian churches throughout Japan is expected to decrease, as well as the number of Christians. In fact, the number of worshippers at weekly holy day services (Sunday services) is also on the decrease.

The average age of pastors, without exception, has also aged, and the number of retiring pastors is far greater than the number of young pastors newly becoming pastors. Even if there are Christian church buildings, the number of churches with no pastor (no pastor in church) is increasing.

As a countermeasure, it is necessary to promote counseling and Bible study through the Internet (online), using devices such as smartphones and tablets.

We will continue to offer online counseling and Bible study.

Today, we have an important announcement. We will start a ministry for Asian people coming to Japan in January 2023, which will mark the 10th year since Christian Friend Ministry was started.

We will start “Christian Friend Ministry for Asia” .

We will change the language of our website to English. Of course, the Japanese version for Japanese members will remain on the same homepage.

From now on, we will make a major change from a ministry for Japanese members to a ministry for Asian members who have come to Japan to study or work. We will focus on people from Asia, but will also accept requests from people from other countries as well.

We are not good at English, so we will use Japanese, but recently there are translation apps with high performance functions that can translate even technical terms appropriately, and we will use such apps.

We have decided to start this ministry in order to encourage Asian people who come to Japan to study or work to share Jesus with their families and friends in their home countries if they have experienced the wonderful life that Jesus has brought to them.

We are currently preparing testimonies, Bible studies, and videos in English, and will let you know when they are ready.

Thank you for your continued support.
