We change the few who change the many.
We are a leader development group that accelerates the capacity of leaders. We identify, equip, and empower the right leaders at the right time through the right process, so they can be released to make the greatest Kingdom impact across Asia.
What does it mean to change the few who change the many?
Asian Access intentionally focuses on a small number of proven leaders with potential, providing a transformation process that then releases them to change the many throughout Asia. You might ask, "What is a small number of leaders?"
A2 creates cohorts of 12-15 leaders, not 25 or 250. Some leader development programs, in an effort to have big results, do offer training for larger groups of leaders. But to us, small is big; less is more.
We mold this dozen or so individual leaders into a learning community. Keeping the numbers small allow for relationships to deepen, which allows deeper life change in each participant. What starts in a few individuals naturally radiates outward to each leader's family, church, community, and even country. A few changed leaders then change many.
Therefore, we invest in a strategic few to change a country and a continent. And we leverage the right people and right process for making the greatest difference for the Kingdom in Asia. And once a cohort graduates, we do it over... and over again.
We sustain change through a proven process that takes the region’s most promising leaders and equips them to have a disproportionately significant impact in their countries, cultures and continent.
Helping Leaders Thrive, Accelerating Their Capacity
Our focus is on intentionally equipping a few key leaders at a time, through a 2-year transformational process—accelerating their capacity—so they can lead the church with increasing vision, character and competence. We are becoming a vibrant community of leaders in twenty countries of Asia, striving to unite the church, extend the Kingdom, and transform the cultures of Asia for the glory of God. Essentially, it starts with helping each leader thrive and empowering them toward the mission to which God has called them.
15 Countries and Growing...
We are now fully operational in Bangladesh, Cambodia, India, Japan, Korea, Nepal, Mongolia, Myanmar, the Philippines, Sri Lanka plus five additional countries with select pastors/leaders and faculty. Furthermore, Asian Access is working toward expanding to 20 countries by 2020.
A2 is a vibrant community devoted to helping leaders thrive—DEVELOP. MULTIPLY. TRANSFORM.
DEVELOP. > shape & sharpen
Asian Access is a vibrant community that develops leaders.
Our community is committed to life-long development: being developed personally as well as developing other leaders. We aim to develop:
- more Christ-like pastors to lead the church with vision, character and competence.
- pastors who are better equipped to lead their congregations in countries where Christians are persecuted.
- church leaders who are less likely to drop out of ministry due to burnout or moral failure.
- leaders with the vision to multiply faith communities that will transform lives.
MULTIPLY. > reproduce & thrive
Asian Access is a vibrant community that seeks to multiply.
We are committed to reproduction on all levels:
- Personal Multiplication: We are leaders serving leaders.
- Leaders and Disciples: Develop leaders who reproduce themselves in others—leaders who can multiply disciples.
- Congregations & Churches: We want to develop leaders who multiply churches that impact their communities, reach new believers, and reproduce churches.
TRANSFORM. > recreate, reshape & recolor
Asian Access is a vibrant community of people seeking initially to be personally transformed, but then also to transform our world.
God is the One who transforms. But our responsibility is to cooperate with His Spirit working in us. We strive to submit to His transforming power both personally and corporately. In developing leaders, Asian Access contributes by creating a safe community. This is an environment that leads to a transformational process in participants and, hopefully, in their world. Transformation—whether it's in a church, a family, a neighborhood, a city, a nation—always begins with transformation in the lives of individuals and then moves outward. Broader change ignites from the transformation of the individual leader, and so that is precisely where A2 focuses its energies.
