Pillar Youth is designed to be a missional community to equip our Youth to know the Gospel and live out God’s mission together as part of the body of Christ. In the Gospel, we are transformed by God’s work for God’s work, so having a specific missional focus is the purpose of these groups. Our Youth missional communities are apart of our family of servant missionaries here in Okinawa.

Students and leaders from Pillar Okinawa gather to share a meal, which is provided, and work through one aspect of the Christian faith: Scripture, the gospel, salvation, and the local church. There will be one gathering for our 6th – 10th grade students.

If you are interested in having your student join please see below for information on who are leaders are and their contact information!

The safety of your youth is essential to us! As part of our procedures, a national criminal background check is completed for each prospective team member whose country makes it possible to perform such a check.
