Veritas: Japan 2018 Team

Japan is one of the most influential, educated, and wealthy nations in the world, and yet less than 0.5% of the 125 million Japanese know Jesus. During Veritas: Japan, our staff and students work in partnership with long-term missionary teams who are planting churches and college ministries in Nagoya, one of the major urban centers of Japan. Throughout the summer we help these ministries reach young people in the area through college ministry, conversational English classes, and children’s ministry. By investing one of their college summers, Veritas: Japan students gain a lifetime of growth and ministry. They are stretched in faith, in their heart for the world, and in the process help reach Japan for Christ.

Veritas: Japan 2018 will be led by Veritas staff, Justin & Haley Derks from May 30-July 31. The team will have 8 students (4 men, 4 women). The trip costs $4,750 per student. DONATE HERE

Start praying now for the 2018 Team:

  • Pray for safe travels to and from Japan.
  • Pray for God to prepare their hearts and minds for the plans that He has and to help them rely on Him for their source of strength this summer.
  • Pray that God would put team members in the path of Japanese students who will respond positively to the team’s friendship and will be drawn to Nisshin Christ Church and the love of the staff there.
  • Pray that God would use the Veritas: Japan team to bring glory to his name and to make the good news of the gospel known.

Veritas: Japan 2017 In Their Own Words:

For the past seven years, The Crossing’s college ministry, Veritas, has partnered with Mission To the World’s church planting team in Nagoya, Japan. Each summer, Veritas takes a group of college students to Nagoya to help run the college ministry at Nisshin Christ Church (NCC) for the months of June and July. Here’s a video overview from Veritas: Japan 2017 led by Kyle & Noelle Richter. Kyle is a Crossing Pastor & Veritas Co-director. Below students from the 2017 team tell about their summer and what it has meant to them.
