Five-Minute English – Japan

Picture of Shannon

Trey Fleming fell in love with the people of Japan a few years back while on an iGo team with students in his youth group. God then led he and his wife to move their family to Osaka, Japan.

The people of Japan are the largest unreached people group in the world.  Millions have never heard the gospel and have no idea who Jesus is or what he has done. Trey and his team are praying for God to move in mighty ways throughout Japan, and specifically in the hearts of the people of Osaka.

Your students will get to build relationships with people from Japan (most speak English) and will get the opportunity to tell them the Good News, many times for the first time ever.

Using a simple and proven strategy called 5-Minute English, your students will get to meet and share the gospel with new friends in Japan, and they will build confidence in sharing the gospel while learning to live on mission.

Trey and his family are excited to to invite you to join in this ancient work.



At iGo, safety is the highest priority and we take extensive measures to ensure the success of the students on our teams. From registering every student with the embassy, to giving all our leaders emergency training, we do everything in our power to minimize risk be prepared for any issue that might arise on the field.



The cost for this TBD but will roughly be $3200 (all inclusive). It covers meals, lodging, airfare, training, in country transportation, travel insurance, etc… everything but souvenirs. We provide all team members with a fundraising booklet upon acceptance and other helpful resources.



Jami Lee Gainey is the Trip Coordinators (staff member in charge of logistics) for this team. She will be your main contact leading up to the trip. This team will also have a Team Leader who will travel and serve with the team. All Team Leaders have a proven track record of responsibility, travel competency, and faithfulness to their church.
