Meet ARIUNBOLD! (pictured here with Silk and me)

He has vision like I’ve rarely seen. It’s a God-given vision, passion, and gift mix that truly is rare among pastors these days but one that Asian Access loves to fan the flames for. Ariunbold truly is “Bold” in his faith and action.

When he joined the first A2 cohort in Mongolia almost 20 years ago, Ariunbold had started 3 churches. But through Asian Access he was inspired and equipped to take his unique gifts into a whole new stratosphere. He is the embodiment of our brand: “Changing the few who change the many.”

You have heard about him before from me. My first year with Asian Access, he was the one who consistently said,

“Joe, me servant.”

And again on this trip to Mongolia, he used that phrase several times. He was the one who said:

“Joe, there are Mongols in Russia, China, Kazakhstan, and Korea. And, (with a heightened voice some spit hitting my face) we need to reach them for the Gospel!”

Later I saw him in Seoul, Korea where he was trying to plant another church among Mongols living there. Today, you are not going to believe what he’s accomplished. Since graduating from Asian Access, he has planted 50 churches in four countries: Mongolia, Korea, America, and Canada. What a bold vision!

Through Ariunbold’s “Bold Vision” God is “Changing the few who change the many!”

What a joy it is serving such choice servants of God who are simply giving their lives as a testimony to his Great Plan and Commission.

Join me in praying for a “Bold” Vision for church planting and multiplication to fuel the nations!

In His Own Words...

"Joe, when I joined Asian Access, all I wanted to do was grow my own church, and I thought I would learn some tips and techniques from American Church Growth ideas to grow my church. The problem was that’s not what Asian Access offered. Instead, they taught me about deepening my walk with Christ, how to carry that into the lives of my congregation (discipleship) and offered me a vision to impact my country and the world.”

— Pastor Ariunbold
