Rebecca, Rachel and John


Serving as President



Bio: Joe & Silk Handley

 

Background Information:

Joe celebrates 9 years serving as the president of Asian Access in July 2017. It is an honor and privilege to serve such an incredible community. We see and experience A2 as a family and we love that. There is no greater joy than walking beside such amazing movement leaders "to see a vibrant community of servant leaders leading the Church across Asia… who unite the Church, multiply leaders and congregations, and extend the transforming power of the Gospel."

Family:

Becca, our oldest daughter, is married to Lowell Gutknecht and we couldn’t be prouder of them. Lowell is progressing rapidly in his career and Becca has the most encouraging spirit. Her creativity in all areas of life is such a joy to watch and she has certainly caught the travel bug from her father!

rachel and quan 2017Rachel, our second daughter, is heading into her final year at San Jose State University — a school with a noted reputation in Rachel's field of interest: illustration and animation. And, the big news of this year is that she recently got engaged! Her fiancé hails originally from Viet Nam which gives fuller expression to our experience of Asian culture. We’re delighted to watch their engagement develop!

Our son John is entering his senior year of high school at Christian Academy in Japan. He’s a budding economist with an emerging passion for philosophy and politics. We're exploring university options in the U.S. and U.K. this summer as he tries to discern the best place to learn and grow in this next season of life. We’re proud of him!

 

Ministry Assignment:

Joe and Silk strive to offer their best for God’s highest “for such a time as this". They trust that the Lord will provide the funding, focus and faith to see the fulfillment of A2’s vision: "To see a vibrant community of servant leaders… leading the Church across Asia…" who are living out our mission, "to unite the church, multiply leaders and congregations, and extend the transforming power of the Gospel."

 

Words of Wisdom:

This verse has been central to our call these past nine years:

And the things you have heard me say in the presence of many witnesses entrust to reliable people who will also be qualified to teach others. - 2 Timothy 2:2.

Asian Access has this same spirit that the Apostle Paul had for Timothy: in-depth discipleship of pastors and leaders. In the words of our founder: “Our vision is to empower your vision!”

Joe and Cambodian friendMy colleague and friend Meng Aun Hour directs the Asian Access work in Cambodia. God has used Meng in powerful ways that have impacted many developing lives. One of Meng’s mentorees is a young minister who came to his ministry calling in a very unusual way. Here is his story… This young man grew up in a nice family, but fell into a life of drug addiction. He would steal from his own parents to feed his drug habits. Finally, his parents kicked him out of the home. One night, he broke into a home to steal items to resell for drugs. But this time, the family woke up and called the police. Rushing to the home, the police had the young man trapped behind a door. He prayed, Lord, if you get me out of this mess, I’ll dedicate my life to serving you. The police opened the door and looked the boy right in the face—but they never saw...

Dr. Steve Hoke & Takeshi TakazawaWhat a thrill it was participating in the final 50th anniversary celebration in Japan late November. Voices from across the lifespan of our ministry shared perspectives on what God has done and what we anticipate in the future. Most moving of all was one of my predecessors, former president Dr. Steve Hoke (above), who shared a passionate call for the people of Japan. As he stared out his window overlooking Tokyo in Shinjuku, he wept over the lost people realizing how few knew Jesus. Then he shared his vision which was initially given by his father, renown pastor and missionary Dr. Don Hoke“Japan is the key to Asia!”

A2 Happy New Year 2018Happy New Year, Everyone!

2018 is a big year for Asian Access. We just completed our Jubilee Celebration in 2017 and one of the signature focal points of 2018 is sustainability. Our national directors meeting spent an entire 4 days focused on the topic and built upon the theory we’ve been pursuing for many years. For quite some time, we defined sustainability to include the following: 1.) Local Leadership; 2.) Local faculty; 3.) Local resources...

EV1 final title slide 2017 04 25 flat 700pxHey it's been an awesome year with Asian Access this past year as we've celebrated 50 years of ministry. We have had so much fun and seen amazing growth. And one of the exciting initiatives from this past year, we have released this new copy of Eastern Voices, which starts a series that we're really excited about. We believe the global Church can learn from those in Asia, who have a lot to share with us. You should see the reviews we are getting on smile.amazon.com. Why don't you go there, download a copy, and read a couple chapters. Check it out and give us a review. Tell us what you think. So far the reviews are amazing. And we'd love to hear what you have to share, as well...

Why A2?

Why are we serving with Asian Access?

We are serving with Asian Access because we have been praying about our calling and ministry and the Lord led us to this remarkable opportunity with Asian Access.

We believe that the church in Asia is uniquely positioned and poised to work toward reaching the unreached and unengaged people groups of Asia with the Gospel. Asian Access leverages the principle of finding, equipping and releasing key leaders (2 Timothy 2:2) through its innovative leadership development model. That is why we're so excited to join the mission!
