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...

gpro pastoral leadership workshop attendeesDr. Bosela Eale had a powerful critique of many pastors who had gone through seminary and went into the pastorate: “They had a big head but with an empty heart!”Dr. Eale, the Catalyst for Leadership Development with the Lausanne Movement, shared today on Pastoral Leadership at the Global Proclamation Congress for Pastoral Trainers during our Spiritual Engagement Track. He walked through the importance of values in pastoral leadership noting that when we don’t have the right values, we can get off course. Three core values were seen as critical to the life of a pastor: 1.) The value of influence — pastors influence others and thus it is important not to abuse our authority! 2.) The value of servant leadership — pastors are not to rule over others but rather serve the community! 3.) The value of authenticity — only when pastors are honest and real will they be able to related to others and impact their lives...

gpro jtThe tagline for the Global Proclamation Congress for Pastoral Trainers is “Accelerating Church Health Worldwide” and Dr. Ramesh Richard repeats almost every day that pastoral health leads to church health which leads to societal health! Today, during the Spiritual Engagement Track, Dr. Jason Tan from the Great Commission Training Centre in the Philippines added another crucial element to this process: Marital Health! He suggested during our track on Marriage and Family that Marital Health leads to Pastoral Health and you can guess where to take it from there...

mw etalYou may have seen pictures from our first full day here in Bangkok at the Global Proclamation Congress for Pastoral Trainers. If you haven’t, check out my Facebook page here! On this day, we had what Dr. Ramesh Richard called the meat of the Congress: working sessions where we get to dig deeper into pastoral training. Asian Access has the privilege of leading one of these tracks on Spiritual Engagement. Dr. Richard calls this track foundational as nothing else can work if we don’t have proper character formation in pastors! Our first session was led by two ladies from...
