From the President

Pastor Chittry (not his real name) shared at Asian Access/Japan National Conference this week. He shared many amazing stories of the impact of Asian Access in his country. Even though I’ve heard these stories countless times, they continue to inspire me. God has been at work in an amazing way in his country and now that work is lighting a fire under the Church of Japan!

As Pastor Chittry was sharing, he pointed to a very critical aspect of who Asian Access is:

"Before we do the work of the church, we must have an intimate relationship with God!”

Many discount this saying, of course, everyone knows that. But, the longer I serve with Asian Access the more profound I see this powerful truth at play. Nearly every graduate points to this essence as the key life changing element of the entire 2-3 year process! At the center of our ministry must be our life with Christ!

Pastor Chittry went on saying,

“The smart leader or pastor sits at the feet of Jesus… When we sit with him and learn from him, the revelation comes into our life!”

He spoke of pastor after pastor whose life had been changed because of this singular focus. This is the essence of Asian Access: that ministry flows out of a love relationship with Jesus!

You see, without Jesus we can do nothing! Read John 15 to learn more…
