About Us

who we are

We are JEMS.

(Japanese Evangelical Missionary Society)

 

Since 1950, JEMS has been blessed by God to expand and include many faceted ministries that span the globe today. By the nature of its multi-faceted ministry and outreach into the world which is becoming increasingly multi and inter-racial, JEMS has expanded beyond just the Japanese and Japanese Americans. We are being enriched and empowered to be more effective for doing the work of evangelism, discipleship, teaching the Word, training, equipping, unifying the believers and churches.

JEMS Pacific Northwest is the Washington state branch of JEMS. We are primarily focused on our campus ministries and local outreach events, including the local chapters of AACF (Asian American Christian Fellowsip), an annual spring concert that has been hosted by a variety of churches, and an annual summer conference at Warm Beach Conference Grounds.
