About Us:

Thanks for dropping by the Reaching Japanese for Christ (RJC) Academy website. The RJC Academy is dedicated to helping people better represent Jesus within the Japanese culture. This includes:

  • Those who are just beginning their work with Japanese,
  • Those who are preparing to go to Japan as short-termers or as career missionaries
  • Those who will minister to Japanese coming to their homes and communities as either students, temporary visitors or immigrants.

The Academy began in 2008 and we are excited about the way that the Lord has blessed the expanding RJC Academy classes. People who are just starting their adventure of loving Japanese for Jesus, those who are actually ministering right now with Japanese in Japan and other parts of the world of Japan, and even Japanese themselves have found the classes helpful.
