OPC members are invited by RP Missions, the short-term missions arm of the Reformed Presbyterian Church of North America (RPCNA), to apply to join a short-term mission team that will serve in Sendai, Japan this summer, June 28 – August 9, 2019.


In 2011, the Earth shook and Sendai was devastated by a powerful tsunami. And seven years later, the rebuilding continues…

This mission team will be laboring with God’s people in Sendai to continue to aid in the rebuilding and clean-up efforts in this city and most importantly the team will be laboring with the saints to provide a witness of Christ to a population that is in great need of the gospel and to know the hope only to be found in Jesus Christ.

If you have a servant’s heart and a desire to come alongside those who have been laboring so diligently over these past five years to attend to the abundant needs in Sendai, please apply today.

Work May Include:

  • English conversation and singing at camps/VBSs
  • Help posting flyers and tracts
  • Beach outreach
  • Meeting hall refurbishing including drywall construction
  • Painting and church cleaning
  • Street evangelism
  • Community service to the elderly
  • English cafe
  • If God provides some talented musicians, some concerts in the park

The team will be working at four locations in the north of Japan:

  • Sendai Megumi Church
  • Yamamoto Nozomi Church
  • Christ is Life Brazilian Presbyterian Church in Tahara
  • Kanagawa Presbytery of the Presbyterian Church in Japan (PCJ)



  • $1,600.00 Plus Airfare
  • If you intend to use fundraising letters, RP Missions can assist with printing and posting them!
