Great news for Japan! The Maclellan Foundation, Inc. has extended to Asian Access a $200,000 matching challenge for church multiplication and leadership development in Japan! That means every dollar you designate toward this effort will be matched dollar for dollar if it is received before December 31, 2013. Please click here to double your gift.
Hugh O. Maclellan, Jr., chairman, recently had this to say about Asian Access:
"I have full confidence in Asian Access as their track record for developing leaders is strong and impressive. Their successful church multiplication model has impacted thousands of lives worldwide."
After Maclellan representatives saw the openness of people since the earthquake and tsunami, they were so impressed with this unique season for hope that they wanted to go public with this matching challenge!
When fully matched, The Maclellan Foundation, Inc. grant will become $400,000, which will give Asian Access the resources to start eight new networks by 2014. That will bring the networks to one-third of the 2020 Vision goal of 100.
But that’s not all. The grant will also . . .
- Recruit, train and place six new missionaries to Japan,
- Redeploy five seasoned church planting missionaries to work strategically alongside existing church multiplication networks with the highest potential for growth, and
- Create new training formats designed to reach a new generation of pastors in their 20’s and 30’s with training in church multiplication.
Please prayerfully consider whether God would have you give $50, $75 or $100—to be doubled by the match—by December 31. Or perhaps God has blessed you in such a way that you could give $250, $500 or even $1,000 to be doubled. If your situation is such that you can give only $25, your gift will also be doubled to $50 by the match. It will take gifts of all sizes to reach the match goal of $200,000.

God bless you and thank you for praying and considering this matching challenge.
For His Kingdom,
Joe Handley, President
