Asian Access is looking forward to leading a workshop track (called Parallel Sessions) at the Global Proclamation Congress for Pastoral Trainers. As you will see below, Asian Access was selected by Dr. Ramesh Richard to help facilitate these sessions and we hope you’ll join us if you’re a Pastoral Trainer.
This Congress will bring together the next generation of pastoral trainers to help equip and empower the Church for the coming decades of ministry. The need is immense and Dr. Richard highlights that only about 5% of the world has trained pastors to help lead the Church worldwide. What a tragedy!
See Dr. Richard’s note about the Spiritual Engagement Track:
Asian Access is among a few of the finest non-formal pastoral training networks I know. I run into their leaders and friends all over the world since we share some fine, pastoral beneficiaries in our critical, but distinct programs in symbiosis and synergy. The invitation to A2s substantive participation in the build-up and follow-up, as well as the strategy and impact of the Global Proclamation Congress for Pastoral Trainers, comes with gratitude after careful study of major alignment of their approaches with the objectives of the GProCongress.
A2 carries long credibility in the pastoral training “industry” especially in strengthening the lives of pastors, helping them grow in their walk with God, in relationship to their marriages and families, and as pastors then reach out through their churches into their communities. The model of how A2 is helping transform the lives of pastors is why I have invited you to facilitate, create, and followup with the Spiritual Engagement & Pastoral Training focus—one of just seven parallel sessions in the dynamic, task-focused program.
It will not only provide additional exposure for Asian Access, but create major opportunities to contribute to the foundational need of spiritual vitality for pastoral leadership, since pastoral health affects church health and church health affects societal health.
