From the President

"We tend to overcomplicate the simplicity of listening to Jesus." — Tony Dale

Not long ago I had the privilege of participating in one of our Asian Access sessions where Tony and Felicity Dale were teaching. It was brilliant and their stories inspired me.

Today, they lead a Christ-centered business that is on mission and they’ve seen remarkable results. Many small fellowships have birthed out of their simple story and who knows how many people are now following Jesus because of their faithful presence!

"My sheep hear my voice." — John 10

They pointed to this passage and as highlighted above noted how so many of us overcomplicate listening to Jesus. Their advice: Just listen to Jesus!

Years ago when Tony and Felicity were in Med School in England, they listened to Jesus and he encouraged them to start small fellowships of med students learning about Christ. They started with just 3-4 Med Students and soon enough hundreds were on fire for Jesus!

You see God uses the ordinary to make the extraordinary happen! As they put it, God took a very ordinary group of students and he did something extraordinary.

Today, Tony and Felicity do the same thing but in the context of a business based in Austin TX. It’s amazing to hear how God is using them as business leaders to see extraordinary things happen for his kingdom.

Do you hear God’s voice? If not, Tony and Felicity have some advice:

  • Go somewhere where there are NO distractions.
  • Focus your thoughts on Jesus:
    • Ask, Lord is there anything you want to share with me?
    • Or, Lord I’m worried about this in my business (or family or church).
  • Listen for a flow of spontaneous thoughts.
  • Then, write it down.

Invariably, God will speak to you. And when he does, obey! Do what he says.

Are you listening to God these days? Do you hear his voice?

Just listen to Jesus!

More Information

dale tony and felicity 2017 square"Felicity and I have had many trips with Asian Access to help develop pastoral leadership in countries that may be underdeveloped economically, but are hungry for the development of the church. What a privilege these trips have been. Meeting across denominational lines, with leaders from multiple denominations embodies the unity that Jesus prayed for and commanded in John 17. Watching those leaders not only embrace each other, but also embrace ideas that may have been outside of their experience so far, has been humbling and rewarding. The impact of these church movements will be far reaching in the development of these countries and of the body of Christ within these countries."
