  • 5 reasons why Jesus led the way he did

    david nd2016 lrLast Fall, Pastor David Dayalan, Asian Access VP for Program Development shared a devotional highlighting letting Jesus take the lead with our board of directors. I thought you might enjoy seeing a taste of what we spend our time doing in seeking to prepare Christ-like leaders… You’ll quickly see that it’s not about us being leaders. It’s really about us being followers!

     

    Why did Jesus lead the way he did?

    He knew who he...

  • Building Christlike Character in the School of God

    Joe-MOH-screenshot-2014-10-22-thumbWhat a few weeks I have had! I’ve been in Asia for two weeks, covering three different countries, the first of which included our national directors annual gathering, the second a combined meeting of our international and Japan boards, and the third a visit with my colleagues and friends in another. My first day back home I went in for what I thought was a routine checkup. As I sat down on the doctor's chair, I quickly learned that this was a schedule for outpatient surgery...

    bf-200"I heartily endorse Asian Access as you are filling a vital need in the church in Asia. The emerging urban church leadership is dynamic yet fragile. They have no older generation of pastors to look up to. Asian Access' proven mentoring approach builds communities of leaders, providing needed accountability and encouragement while developing personal character and ministry skills."

  • Life's Greatest Challenges... Where Leaders are Made

    Do you ever feel like your life follows the pattern of this biker? We make our plans but they often go in much different ways!

    The theme of our recent Global Leaders’ Summit hit this very topic. David Dayalan, Adrian and Ophelia De Visser and Silk and I shared to spark the conversation. Each of us shared from our deepest places of pain over the past few years. We all have been on the roller coaster of life, much like...

     

  • ROI for A2/Cambodia

    ROI for A2/CambodiaA2/Cambodia just graduated Class 4 and the stories of life change from the pastors were powerful. Many of them personally asked me to thank you for investing in them. As they shared the stories of transformation, it reminded me of Asian Access return on investment. We hope to see pastors for a lifetime who live out the Essence of Asian Access.

    Here are a few markers of their life change when I asked them, "How has Asian Access helped you?":...
  • Shopping with my wife is like Walking with God!

    Shopping in JapanLiving in Japan brings all sorts of new life experiences for me. Stateside I focus mostly on ministry and family but here in Tokyo, Silk and I share house duties more because she is teaching and we live in a world that requires us to do more teamwork when it comes to daily living. Areas where I try to help out are weekly shopping, cleaning the dishes and once in a while laundry. No one trusts me with cooking so this is the best I can offer and all of these things I rarely participate in stateside. It certainly helps me grow as a Christ-like leader. It helps me develop character, one of the biggest challenges in Christian leadership today...

  • The A-E-I-O-U of living your life like Jesus

    aeiou 530952299A Pastor recently contacted me to ask if there was any hope for his church to survive. The few people in his church were aged, and the church was slowly but surely declining in numbers. My answer shocked him. I said there was great hope for him and his church—because the Father was already at work in his town. I then opened my Bible to John chapter 5 and shared the story of Jesus healing the man who had been sick for 38 years, and who...

  • The University of the Desert...

    univ of desert 800pxGod's choice training ground for future leaders

    It took some time for me to understand God’s University of the Desert and then to trust Him in those deep experiences. But then it took even further time to recognise not only God’s presence in the loneliness of the desert, but also God’s purposes in the desert as He would be preparing me for the next season of my life. In the process I found perspective as I began to read the scriptures with a desert paradigm and I was surprised how many of God’s choice leaders spent time in the desert at critical seasons in their lives.  Many of them became my mentors on how to live life in the desert. People like Joseph, Abraham, Moses, David, John The Baptist, Jesus, Paul and the Apostle John. Gradually it dawned on me that God has a choice discipleship training school called the University of the Desert. It is not one in which we can formally enrol and undertake classes of our own choosing and be graded on our academic achievements. Rather, it is one in which God sovereignly works through the circumstances of our lives to test us in order to approve us and then entrust us with responsibilities that are known only to Him. Sometimes it is only God and I that are aware of the fact that the class in the University of the Desert is in session. The following are some of the lessons I have learned as a result of...

  • Tough Love from a Good Friend

    00012 00025Sometimes the biggest benefits our leaders gain from Asian Access come from one another. A2 National Director for Cambodia Meng Aun Hour is, like all of our national leaders, a volunteer. Like all of our national leaders, he has a primary ministry. And like all of our national leaders, he actually has several “primary” ministries.  But Meng’s list could make even the most Type-A leader pause for breath. It includes...
