In this quick video report, Chinzorig shares the story of his friend, Pastor Ariunbold. When I met Ariunbold, every time I turned around he would pound his chest and say in broken English, “Joe, me servant!” Each time he was doing something sacrificial for either me or one of the other people we visited. This constant servanthood touched me so I asked Ariunbold why he volunteers his time to recruit pastors and coordinate the ministry.
“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.”
Since graduating Ariunbold has now planted five other churches and those five have reproduced themselves to plant 13 other churches. It’s quite a story and our Country Leader, Chinzorig shares a little of this story and impact in the video below.
At the end of my time with Ariunbold, he said to me, “Joe, there are Mongolians that live in Russia, Kazakhstan, another neighboring country and South Korea.” Then, practically grabbing my collar, he says, “And we need to reach them for the gospel!” I thought right then and there that that was why God called me to Asian Access, to come alongside a whole new generation of Ariunbolds throughout Asia and finish our part in reaching the world for Christ. For me, it doesn’t get any better than this!

Hello, I am Chinzorig. I am a pastor of Emmanuel Assembly, and I work with Asian Access. I’m the national director for Asian Access/Mongolia. I’ve been in the first class and now I’m privileged to work as a staff for Asian Access. And now we have the fourth class of Asian Access, in the middle of its training. I would like to share a couple of encouraging stories for you – to be encouraged in the Lord.
The first one is my close friend, who is actually on our staff now. His story is amazing. He has an amazing heart for the Lord, and he has actually traveled to all the 21 provinces in Mongolia with the Gospel, and he started churches and started making disciples and now he oversees some of them. He received his teaching on organic church and house church movements and now he’s done a great job traveling to different nations even, like including South Korea ministering to Mongols there, and also he goes to Buryatia now to cooperate with the Russian church and also works with the Buryatan church reaching Buryat people with the Gospel. He carries this message of organic church, you know, a simple church but very effective church and that’s his value now. Wherever he goes the people are encouraged there. They go more into a simple lifestyle, but quite effective lifestyle with low cost, but true discipleship and just a great job.
My second story would be one of my friends again. He was really touched by one of the sessions on [the] “Father Heart of God.” Now that message has become his own message and now he takes this message to every church, to every Christian. He is the message bearer of Father Heart of God. And because of his ministry and preaching, many people reconcile with their fathers and inner healing and relationship restoration and family restoration happens, so I would like to thank you all who are giving to Asian Access and supporting us with prayer. God bless you.
