2020 AACF Missions

Missions is part of AACF. Our fellowships are missional communities on the college campus, sharing and living out the life-changing message of Jesus Christ. AACF also has summer mission projects. In the summer of 2020, we will be going to Japan and Hawaii!

We are praying for 5 teams to go to Japan!

  • Aso Team will need 5 team members to do community outreach and ministry in the local schools. In the schools you’ll teach crafts, games, and English lessons. In the community you will teach English and engage the community by hosting events. Date Range: 2 weeks starting the beginning of July. 
  • Buttobi Camp Team will need 4 team members to support a children’s camp. Over 250 kids from a network of churches gather for a week-long camp. The camp is hosted twice during the two weeks you will be there. You will participate in worship, games, kitchen duty, and in whichever way the camp needs you. Date Range: 2 weeks starting late-July into early-August. 
  • Hokkaido Team will need 4 team members to serve with Airin Chapel Christ Church. This church has pioneered a children’s and youth ministry call MEBIG (http://www.mebig.com/). Airin church hosts daily community events, Tuesday – Friday, at the church or a local park. You will be supporting these events by passing out flyers and proclaiming the love of God by interacting with the families that show up. Airin Church has also recently purchased new buildings; you may be asked to help with basic renovation work (gardening, painting, etc). Date Range: 2-3 weeks starting early-July into late-July.

We will also be supporting a church plant in Nagoya. Date Range: 2 weeks starting late-July into early-August.  
  • Toyohashi Team will be ministering to the Brazilian-Japanese community. A small population of migrants in Japan looking for a better opportunity. This is a marginalized people group who need the peace and hope of the Gospel. You’ll be focusing on childrens ministry in various contexts. Speaking Japanese will be a plus. And speaking Portuguese will also be a plus. These are a warm group of adults and kids who need to hear and experience the love of God through the Gospel. Date Range: 2 weeks starting late-July into early-August.
