Alumnus Reproduces A2 Training for Rural Leaders
Pastor 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 population. If there ever was a country that so desperately needed the multiplication of leaders like this, this is the country.
What a joy to see our core value of multiplication of leaders happening; we call this “Reproducing Disciple-making Leaders!”
When our graduates are blessed by Asian Access and, in turn, take the training to new areas and impact dozens of new leaders, our work is multiplied many times over. This reproduction can happen on an individual level, within a denomination or into even a new geographic region. Whenever it does happen, we rejoice and are thanful.
Pray for John and his family as he steps out in faith to empower the least resourced pastors in his region!
