About RJC Program
RJC program is for non-Japanese who love Jesus and want to share about Him with Japanese people. RJC stands for Reaching Japanese for Christ.

We have awesome workshops prepared this year! Because we have this online this year, we have special privilege to hear from those who reside in Japan currently about ministries in Japan and how God is at work. Please check out the schedule.

We will also hear from different people about testimonies including some of Japanese who were saved in the US and now returned to Japan.

It will be a great time of learning, networking, and encouragement.

A word from Matt Barany, RJC Program Director

Grace and Peace

Hello my name is Matt Barany! I have the privilege of serving as the EC20 Beyond RJC Director. Currently I serve as the Director of Mobilization for Second Level Ministry, a ministry that seeks "to support the spiritual growth of Japanese Christians – the process of maturing as a disciple of Christ."

RJC enjoys partnering with JCFN in seeking to reach out to the Japanese people especially "returnees" which Equippers conferences focus on. JCFN "is an evangelical Christian network which seeks to conduct and promote the follow up of primarily Japanese Christians and seekers of God, who move from Japan to a foreign country and back again and who have requested an introduction to a fellowship or church."

This will be my 3rd Equipper's Conference. Each EC has been a joy to attend and I'm praying that this year's conference will be a blessing to all who attend. Many of you may have been wondering.. “What’s the plan for EC this year?” The EC planning committee has decided to do the Equippers conference online this year. Although we will miss seeing everyone in person, we are excited for this online opportunity and for the ability to still do the conference in spite of the pandemic.

The theme for EC20 is…“Listen…Let the King Speak" and the theme verse is Isaiah 55:3, "Give ear and come to me; listen, that you may live. I will make an everlasting covenant with you, my faithful love promised to David."

I look forward to seeing many of you online this December. Be well.
