「hi-b.a. aims to deliver the gospel to every high school student.」
Currently, the average age of the pastor in Japan is 70 years old, with the average age of church members being above 60. It is said that more than 80% of churches have less than 5 children in children’s church, and churches without any high-school age students are increasing. Additionally, with the trend of the actively serving pastors aging continues, young pastors and church members are decreasing. The topic of passing along the firstname.lastname@example.org must be addressed with the utmost of importance. I do not think it is an exaggeration to say that we at hi-b.a. are “bringing forth the next generation of believers” considering the work with which we have been tasked.
「Work to serve church」
It has been 68 years since this work of high schooler evangelism has begun in Japan. We have received the trust of the local church of Japan, and have been able to grow through this. Although this effort started with missionaries who traveled to Japan following World War II, both our present financial and human resources are supported almost entirely by Japanese local churches. We hold to the theological beliefs and convictions traditionally held by the protestant church, post reformation. Additionally, we take it as our mission to serve the local church. Please send your youth to hi-b.a. in peace of mind. We would be very grateful if you would partner with us in financial and/or prayer support.
