Christian-founded "mission schools" in Japan have had the opportunity to convey the gospel for several generations. These institutions, facing many challenges in living up to their potential for mission to students, ninety-nine percent of whom are non-believers, are testing and implementing new and creative ways of communicating biblical truth. This article examines some of these approaches, looking in particular at Bible classes taught in a Christian high school in Tokyo. It then discusses more generally how young people in mission schools in Japan might be reached with the gospel.
