A2/Bangladesh graduated its first group of emerging young leaders from a predominantly Muslim dominant nation. It's the first of it's kind for Asian Access!
It was inspiring to see these twenty and thirty something pastors graduate together. I don't believe I have ever seen a more enthusiastic graduating class. They were fun and it was encouraging to see them own our vision and respond to the call to multiply.
Core to the vision of Asian Access is the vision to "make disciples of all nations" or as we label it "to reproduce disciple-making leaders" who will plant "multiplying churches". Several of these young people stood up and shared how their lives had been impacted. Even deeper though was their commitment to reproduce what they had learned.
Several spoke of a vision to share what they had learned to their networks, denominations, organizations and movements. Many were so inspired that they want to pitch in and help Asian Access grow into other predominantly Muslim countries.
It's exciting to see such passion. I was deeply touched but also inspired by these young people…
