Chinzorig JigjidsurenDo you ever feel like your life is too complex? 

Recently, while talking with A2/Mongolia Country Leader Chinzorig Jigjidsuren, I was reminded of the simplicity of following Christ and how that can influence one’s life. In this day and age, we seem to get every form and method of church thrown at us: purpose driven, missional, organic, emerging, simple, etc. All of these have their merits, but sometimes they can be confusing. I have nothing against any of these, but I was impressed with what I learned from Chinzorig in the context of a nomadic culture. As pastor of Emanuel Fellowship in Ulan Baatar (a large church in Mongolia), Chinzorig is now trying to develop a simpler, more Mongolian form of church. It is more Mongolian because it follows ...

David Dayalan, National Director of Asian Access/IndiaThese last few days I’ve had the privilege of sitting with fellow pastors in Asia preparing for an important gathering coming up in March for our ministry. It was an invigorating experience because we spent a good deal of time on our knees praying for God’s direction and waiting on Him to guide us in the coming years. Our key focus was and is to strengthen our mission by reinforcing “The Essence of Asian Access”. Core to this essence is our “Love Relationship with God” and we prayed...

Cape Town 2010 logoI just finished three stimulating days conversing with several U.S. Church and Mission leaders preparing for the upcoming historic gathering for world evangelization: Cape Town 2010. This event in October will bring together 4000 leaders from more than 200 countries to discuss the significant issues of our day for the life of the global church.

Over the last few days, we have been discussing six critical issues from the perspective of the US Church all preparing for this October when we will gather with others from around the world to grapple with the most important issues facing the world...

Ever since Tuesday, 1/12/10, you may have noticed that I’ve been posting news about my friend, Dan Woolley, a Compassion International staff worker in Haiti who served as a student intern of mine when I worked at Azusa Pacific University.

Dan’s story has captured the hearts of thousands and is an illustration of hope in the midst of catastrophic disaster. If you haven’t heard or seen Dan’s story, you can see part of it here... 

Our vision at Asian Access is “to see a vibrant community of servant leaders with vision, character and competence leading the church across Asia” and it has been encouraging to see the Church rise up in the midst of such devastation in Haiti. While we are committed to Asia, we desire to see this type of servant leadership emerging worldwide as a witness for Christ.

A few of our core values in pursuing this vision are the values of networking,generosity and partnership. To this end, we are part of a larger community of missions committed to reaching the world for Christ by taking the “whole Gospel to the whole world.”

First, we belong to a network of ministries called The Mission Exchange which is working with CrossGlobal-Link to provide a network of resources and information for the disaster in Haiti. To connect with their work, you can learn more at:

Asian Access is also firmly committed to the principle of generosity.  Another accountability network we participate in, the ECFA, has setup a few great links to help out with the relief effort in Haiti. If you’re looking for a ministry to help in this effort, the following links should prove useful. These are ministries that have integrity and are run by solid principles developed by the ECFA: Check out these opportunities...

Pray for the people of Haiti and for the Church as it stands up to provide relief, rebuild lives and extend the transforming power of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

For His kingdom,

Asian Access brings paradigm shifts for Mongolian pastor

Pastor Batbold, A2•Mongolia Class 2 grad, current working team memberAt the recent Asian Access•Mongolia class 4 graduation, I listened to Pastor Batbold share his appreciation for Asian Access and the impact it is making in his own life and ministry.

Pastor Batbold graduated from class 2 and is now a "working team" member for Asian Access•Mongolia. He is giving back to this movement from which he has benefitted.  And he sees A2 contributing to the Church in Mongolia...

Mongolia Oct 2009

Inspirational... that is how I describe my recent time in Mongolia and another country. I was in Mongolia as a faculty member for the final session of our fourth class of pastors and the outcome was simply inspirational! Many of the twelve graduating pastors developed similar plans as Pastor Sundui (pictured here). Sundui, led by the Lord through the Asian Access program, developed plans to start 500 churches and see 10,000 people come to Christ in the next eight...
