Thank you for considering a short-term mission trip with the Summit. This is more than an overseas trip. We are boldly asking God to give us the promise he made to Jesus in Psalm 2:8: “Ask me, and I will make the nations your inheritance” (NIV). You are part of the answer to that prayer.

Missions Trip to Japan, Japan

Japan (36765)

Japan
May 22 - June 1, 2019
There is a Summit family who has living as church planters in Tokyo, Japan for the last 6 years. Japan is one of the most unreached countries on Earth yet it is open to missionaries - this makes it an extremely strategic place to invest in! On this short term trip, we will be going to encourage the Summit family who lives there - the soil is extremely rocky and it can be discouraging but they are passionate about Japanese people knowing God. We will go with fresh eyes to see what life in Tokyo is like, how to engage locals and share the Gospel, and think of new ways to reach more people. This will not be a super structured trip - flexibility is key for plans to change. There will be significant amounts of walking each day so ease in mobility is necessary.
