Twice a year JCF holds national retreats in different areas of Japan. On average, nearly 30 JETs, non-JET foreigners, as well as Japanese people attend these retreats. If you havenât attended one yet, we highly recommend them! Itâs a great opportunity to relax, meet other Christians, and be spiritually refreshed and encouraged.
The 2020 Spring retreat will be online! Please join us from May 2- 5 for worship and fellowship from the comfort of your home.
Check out highlights from our past retreats.
“JCF Retreats are always fun and memorable experiences for me. I’m currently the only foreigner at my church so I don’t often get to learn and worship in English. It can feel a bit isolating at times. That’s one of the reasons the retreats mean so much to me. It’s wonderful to be able to fellowship and worship together with other English speakers who are in roughly the same situation. It’s definitely a refreshing time, spiritually and culturally. The friends I’ve made at these retreats are true friends who will stay in my heart for years to come.”Megan Daniel
