From the President

CBSamuel 2016As I mentioned the other day, C.B. Samuel led our Global Leaders’ Summit in some rich reflections on our values at Asian Access. The first day his focus was our Intimacy with God (see "They were lost in God.").

This posting is about his second day and the importance of community. We have the audio of this recorded message and you can listen to C.B’s wisdom here:

Let me just tease you to listen to this tremendous teaching by selecting some of his choice quotes:

  • We need to shake up the pastors to say you are not a CEO, you are a shepherd to create community!
  • You can’t be community when the agenda is yours – Jean Vanier
  • The sense of community is not to receive but to give – Jean Vanier
  • Community is natural… Something that God made us for
  • Community is a choice, it’s intentional, it doesn’t happen accidentally! The apostle Paul was intentional about building community. Paul’s letter’s show that he was more than just an evangelist. He knew the Gospel builds communities.
  • The essence of the church is community
  • The apostle Paul would be confused with the statement, “I’m going to church on Sunday morning.”
  • It was more than just following Him. It was following him with brothers and sisters in the kingdom We have responsibility for one another! To love God is to love one another.
  • 2000 years we have made a mess of this idea of church. We have become programers and event managers… People want more than Sunday morning!
  • The essence of the church is establishing this community
  • Community is the essence of the Church. It’s not a program! It is the leader who creates community. Family doesn’t just happen. It’s created!
  • If you are a pastor, you are like an artist. You are going to show the beauty of God!
  • My prayer for Asian Access: When we train leaders, we will train people who lead communities!

SIX COMMON THEMES FOR A TRINITARIAN APPROACH TO LEADING MISSIONS

By Joseph W. Handley, Jr.

Polycentric—Why? And, what’s that?1

As the world grapples with ongoing tensions, polarities, and ever-growing challenges, I am convinced that we need a new approach to leadership. It was this concern that compelled me to study global leadership and see if another form of leadership could prove pivotal to the world in which we lead for this era of God’s mission.

Polycentric Leadership: a leadership model for a polarized world 

The past thirteen months have been one of the most disruptive seasons in my lifetime. A global pandemic, one of the worst economies of the century, and a divisive political environment were all contributors.
