Apply for this position

Aganai (Atonement) Lutheran Church in Higashi Kurume (near  Tokyo) is looking for more ways to reach their neighbors with the gospel. They would like to host an English class at their church, led by a native English speaker, via a video-call service such as Skype.

GOAL:  English as a Second Language (ESL) classes offer the chance for people to get to know each other in a non-threatening setting. Church members will be able to invite others along to class and witness their faith in this environment.

Participants will also be invited to join in a Bible class led by the local pastor in connection with the ESL classes.

Where: Online

When: Early Morning Central Time, USA

Number of Teachers Needed: 3-4 volunteers


Once weekly, at 9:00 p.m. Tokyo time (day of the week TBD), you will digitally meet with a group to lead them in English learning exercises and a simple English-language devotion. (Note: this is early morning in the USA)

ESL teaching experience is required.
Japanese speaking ability is a plus.

Cultural Considerations:

An introduction to Japanese culture will be conducted with the volunteer before their first Skype class. A familiarity with Japanese culture will include a brief understanding of Japan’s history, language, and customs. The volunteer will find their ESL students polite, eager to learn, and interested in understanding American English.
KW’s Japan Field Manager will provide resources as necessary for the volunteer who wishes to understand more about Japanese culture while volunteering.
