I couldn’t be more pleased to welcome Prashan De Visser to our Council of Reference. Asian Access exists to empower emerging young leaders and watching Prashan rise as a young man mentored by his father, Adrian De Visser who leads our work in Sri Lanka, to the international prominence and influence Prashan has today is so encouraging.

Prashan leads Global Unites, one of the most impactful youth movements in the world today, and his voice will help Asian Access as we look to the future and come alongside younger leaders for the future of the Church worldwide.

Here's what Prashan recently said about Asian Access...


devisser prashan 400px"Asian Access has invested in dynamic emerging leaders of the Church across the continent. I'm amazed at how God has used Asian Access to foster unity within the body of Christ in these nations. A2 convenes emerging leaders from various backgrounds of the church and provides a vibrant community of learning. This has inspired healing and reconciliation along denominational and ethnic lines in these countries. The local Church is stronger, better equipped and firmly committed to one another due to the ministry of Asian Access."

Pray for him and Global Unites as they seek to unite young people in the hottest spots of our planet. And, join me in welcoming him to the Asian Access team as a council of reference member!

Toward unity,

As the world grapples with ongoing tensions, polarities, and ever-growing challenges, I am convinced that we need a new approach to leadership.
