A few weeks ago, our national directors and key working team members from each country gathered for some rich times of fellowship, growing together and learning in community.

It was time well spent as we dug into creative ways to share in the Asian Access communities. As you can see in these pictures, we had a lot of fun together! My colleague David Dayalan shared about it here, too.

Being together like this was so helpful to our goals in developing local faculty. We made great progress as each country spent time mapping out who could be teaching from their own countries as well as setup times to visit one another’s countries. This is significant because it helps move us forward in a profound manner toward being a more sustainable ministry in every location.

It was also a rich time spiritually. Our devotions and special assignments were all geared toward expressing our creativity. Check out this set of photos from one of our national directors. In our quiet times, we were asked to share what God was telling us and Brother W drew a picture of a tree and shared how God was telling him that the Church needs to grow deeper roots in Christ in order to truly bear fruit. What a beautiful metaphor of the Essence of Asian Access!

In another sharing, Meng Aun Hour shared how we must first grow UP toward God and then IN with one another before we grow OUT to the community and world around us. Here’s a photo of him illustrating his points and it provided another classic meditation on the focus of Asian Access.

Then, later brother W shared a lesson about Christ-like leadership. He showed us the differences between secular leadership and Servant leadership. It was another wonderful example of the fruit of Asian Access. As brother W shared, my heart was warmed knowing that God is showering Asian Access with such remarkable community, wonderful friendships, and deeper and deeper roots in the kind of leadership He is calling us to as Shepherds of the Flock!

What a joy it is to see our community grow together. I pray that this week will be one of great inspiration that helps take us to new depths and heights in growing in Christ, with one another, and out to the world around us!

Love to hear how you are learning these days. Share with us please… We are a learning community and eager to learn from you and how God is shaping your life and leadership.

Polycentric Leadership

Polycentrism as the New Leadership Paradigm

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. We have faced lock downs, loss of incomes and jobs, and the disease itself—as we still do at this time.
