The SBCV will be partnering with the IMB and the missionaries on the ground to reach Japanese and internationals with the Gospel during the Olympics in Tokyo. The IMB is working with the International Sports Federation Inc. based out of Texas for all of the logistics. They have tremendous experience with international events and are coordinating with local churches there for this outreach.
The SBCV churches will comprise a team that will make up a small portion of the hundreds of volunteers for the Olympic Mission Project. We will be given specific daily assignments at various venues. To help Japanese Churches engage their nation – we will assist with dozens of OPEN CROWD FESTIVALS – they can be described as a great big party in the local park for kids, youth, adults etc. This will be our main focus in Japan. It uses simple principles of adventure, music, play, games, fun, sport and community. We also could be assigned to viewing parties, coffeehouse mission (ECHO) and Sports Camps that will be taking place throughout the city during the Olympics.
