Church leaders are asking for assistance

cover photo (Header photo by Sander Wehkamp on Unsplash)Indonesia (MNN) – A major component for a healthy church is strong leadership. However, there are so many places around the world where church leaders lack access to leadership tools and training. That’s why Asian Access exists—to equip Christian leaders and to bring leaders together within a country so they can live as the Body of Christ. Noel Becchetti of Asian Access (A2) says it’s looking like an exciting new venture is ahead for Asian Access. Church leaders from Indonesia have invited A2 in to see if a leadership development program can be implemented there. They’ve held conversations for about a year now, and Becchetti and some colleagues recently visited some church leaders to assess the next steps...

Large refugee population affecting the economy and nationals

Bangladesh (MNN) – The discussions between Myanmar and Bangladesh for repatriating the nearly 700,000 Rohingya refugees have been slow, creating issues in Bangladesh’s economy. However, the Rohingya people are not pushing for their return to Myanmar either. “The Rohingyas are not willing to go back because they are getting food here, they are getting shelter, and they say they are not willing to go back. But it’s a big issue because a huge amount, a population [around] one million are here. So, it’s a big responsibility for the Bangladesh government, as well as the Christian churches, and NGOs and international NGOs,” Asian Access’ *Pastor Peter says.

Sendai tsunami disaster 29Mar2011 jj 044

From Greed to Generosity

On March 11—the 7th anniversary of the Triple Disaster here in Japan—I’ve been asked to preach at Tokyo Life Church, the church we attend most regularly. TLC is in a Lenten series, and the topics are The Seven Deadly Sins. The passage I’m to cover is Matthew 19:16-30. It is the story of the rich young ruler, and the deadly sin is greed. As I reflect on how to tie greed, the rich young ruler, and 3.11 together, vivid memories come to mind. I’ll never forget that day in the mountains of Karuizawa thinking...

Japan (MNN) – Seven years ago on the afternoon of March 11, a massive earthquake shifted Japan’s Honshu island by several feet. The moving earth resulted in a series of tsunamis, the first of which struck the Fukushima nuclear power plant at a height of 45 ft, knocking out its backup generators. Three of the six reactors exploded because the cooling systems stopped functioning. Many people died in what’s known as Japan’s Triple Disaster, also called 3/11. Hundreds of thousands of people had...

Joe and John WJohn Worcester, Asian Access faculty from ChurchPlanting.net, recently taught for us here in Japan after teaching for us in Mongolia. The seminar here in Tokyo was done in concert with Biblical Church of Tokyo. Prior to the seminar, we had a dynamic discussion where John made a provocative statement:“It’s as if 'conversion' has become a bad word.” After reading the news and following the reports of Billy Graham’s legacy, this statement struck me even more powerfully. The essence of Graham’s ministry was all about people converting to Christ.

Pastor Herman Moldez, Asian Access/Philippines, shared an excellent devotion during our time together this month. He was sharing as part of a team with new faculty Pastor Paul Lee pictured here and myself. Herman asked us: “What is the greatest seduction (or temptation) to ministry?”

Navodaya conference sparks key church planting, family enrichment, and healing initiatives in Sri Lanka

Rev. Adrian DeVisser is Founder of Kithu Sevana Ministries, National Director for Asian Access Sri Lanka, and Vice President for Partnership Development for Asian Access. This past January, Adrian, in collaboration with key national leaders, organized the Navodaya (New Beginning) Conference at the Ape Kadella Camp and Conference Center outside of Colombo. The Conference brought together leaders from throughout Sri Lanka. As Adrian shares here, God moved powerfully through the Navodaya Conference.

“The Navodaya conference was organized in January 2018 to fulfil a threefold objective...

Not long ago I met this pastor in one of our Asian Access cohorts. His name, face and country are hidden to protect him, his family, church and the work of God in his community. What a story though! As he was sharing, I learned that he was formerly a Hindu Priest. He came to the capital of his country to seek a better life because he was on the brink of disaster—close to suicide because his life was so bad. Along the way...

 

 

joe and pastor sothCelebrating at the Cambodian Graduation last year was a special delight for me. Two things happened that day that highlighted the reproducibility of Asian Access. First was seeing the Essence of Asian Access translated into the Khmer language. You know that people really own the ministry when they start processing their learning through the prism of their own language and culture. This has happened in Cambodia as the local working team has taken the principles of Asian Access to...

EV11.6: Asian Access contributing to breaking down discrimination

Pastor Jeyakaran describes how sharing the pro-empowerment story of Powerhouse Church has challenged dozens of Indian pastors to change their perspectives and practices in terms of the priesthood of all believers, leaving behind the caste, skin color, and gender prejudices of centuries.
