Organization in Japan
In Japan, where overwork is commonplace and only 0.5% of the population identifies as evangelical Christian, the concept of integrating faith and work is relatively new for most Christians. Traditionally, they have compartmentalized these aspects of their lives. To change this, the LIGHT PROJECT was established in 2017.
The LIGHT PROJECT aims to train and equip Japanese working Christians to merge their faith with their professional lives. Through our Faith & Work training courses and resources, participants learn to view work from God's perspective, apply their faith in their workplaces, and engage with God's redemptive plans at work for His kingdom. Visit our website at www.lightproject.jp/en/ to see videos showcasing the transformation of our course graduates.
Your financial partnership with this project will help spread the light of Jesus Christ in Japan's workplaces, and beyond, throughout the nation.
