Jeff & Lynda MalloryI’m very excited to introduce you to our new VP for Development, Jeff Mallory! As you may know, I moved to Japan the other day for several strategic reasons in serving as the president of Asian Access. You can learn more about this move here. As part of this move, we knew we needed to add a pastoral partner in the US to keep us connected as I focus more on the spiritual leadership of the movement. Jeff Mallory is the perfect compliment for us at this strategic time. As we look to expand ministry in Japan, grow as an international community, and open new countries to reach 20 by 2020, Jeff brings the shepherd-like presence with our partners across the U.S. ...

Handley three Tokyo boundThe day has come and we are moving to Japan — Tuesday, August 9. As you may have heard, our son John approached his mom last summer saying, “Can we make that move to Japan that we were thinking about a few years ago?” As soon as Silk heard those words she knew this’ll be a no brainer for Joe! Why are we moving? There are many reasons...

Asian Access at the Global Proclamation Congress for Pastoral Trainers

gpro spiritual awareness slideWhat an incredible week together in Bangkok as nearly 2,500 pastoral trainers gathered together from 112 countries to catalyze a movement for pastoral training. Asian Access was right in the mix of it all. We served as pre-conference consultants to the overall program, led one of the primary workshop tracks on Spiritual Engagement, and our very own Jeyakaran Emmanuel and Takeshi Takazawa made us proud by serving as the congress emcee’s all week. Jayakaran's wife Kavitha also served in that same MC role. They did a fantastic job. You can see the action at our previous posts on the Parallel Session...

Alumnus Reproduces A2 Training for Rural Leaders

pastor john reproducing webPastor John has a heart for empowering rural pastors. He inspired me as I listened to him share his burden with me several weeks ago. He was so blessed by Asian Access that he started his own training program for pastors in the rural areas around his province—even before he graduated from the two-year A2 journey! This was a vision of both the first and second classes of Asian Access in his region but they told me how moved they were by Pastor John. They had the idea but it wasn’t until John came along in the third class that this vision turned into reality. John is now reproducing Asian Access training among rural pastors surrounding his city. We see this in several countries but now to see it here in one of the most populated countries on earth is important. This is a country with significant needs and a massive...

Pastoral Health leads to Church Health which leads to Societal Health

gpro spiritual awareness slideThe final day of our Spiritual Engagement Session at the Global Proclamation Congress for Pastoral Trainers we covered the topic of Prayer, Warfare and Deliverance. Temo Lemos and Sidny Ciscernos from Manantiel de Vida Church led the day and invited Otto Kladensky from TOPIC and Mike Wilson from Asian Access to share. The session followed the flow of our Congress: Pastoral Health leads to Church Health which leads to Societal Health. Temo and Sidny walked us through the vital importance of our health as pastors. They opened with a provocative question: “Why do so many Christian leaders not lived changed lives?” ...

roli manuel“If you want something to last a year, plant a seed. If you want something to last a decade, plant a tree. If you want something to last a century, plant a person. But, if you want something to last for eternity, mentor people!” — Roli Manuel, Mentorlink and TOPIC, Philippines — Today’s topic for our Spiritual Engagement Track was Pastoring of Pastors and/or Mentoring. Herman Moldez, the leader of Mentorlink and TOPIC for the Philippines did an exceptional job of showing us how to really see lives changed: through mentoring of others to be and live like Jesus. His colleague Roli, caught the concept quite well in quoting the proverb above: if you want something to have enduring value: mentor people...
