A Trans-Cultural Look at Christian Leadership

Do we lead like Jesus? (2:55)

A2 50th Jakarta group webI just read a report from one of the members of the A2 Community. I wanted you to be encouraged, but for security reasons, I've removed specific details that might pose a safety threat.

"I returned from ______________ just a few days ago. I want to thank all of you for your prayers for me and the pastors in _____________ during this time. Our travels were safe; the investment in the lives of the participants was just so very, very, good. I was very pleased with how the sessions went. No difficulties with officials, although at one point one of our men was called by his wife, because the police were at their door wanting to see him. He had to leave us and was gone for...

David & JackieDavid and Jackie Ro, OMF missionaries, were with me this week in Taiwan. They are some of the finest servants of Christ you can meet. Jackie serves as the director for A2's Women in Ministry leader development program, while David serves as the East Asia Regional Director for the Lausanne Movement and for Gordon Conwell Seminary’s J. Christy Wilson Center for World Missions. As we were sharing with leaders in Taipei about the ministry of Asian Access, they both had some profound insight to share: insight that was incredibly encouraging to...

Pastor RajivPastor Rajiv recently shared with me his compelling story. It was powerful to hear what God was teaching him. Prior to joining Asian Access, Pastor Rajiv was “on a journey of big.” He enjoyed a very prominent position at a large church. However, as he reflected on success, he wondered if his ministry measured up. He began questioning the real impact of his kingdom work—despite his popularity and notoriety. As Pastor Rajiv grew through the Asian Access learning community, he began seeking the Lord in fasting and prayer...

Freeing Bible Teaching from the Bonds of Culture

Why we lack good Bible teachers (2:15)

Why can Bible teaching in countries like Bangladesh be so dry and unappealing? Peter Mazumder shares why so many Bible college graduates in Bangladesh begin their ministries unmotivated, as well as unequipped, to teach the Bible with life and power...

Asian Access announces largest matching grant in its 50-year history...

Just a quick reminder: every dollar you give to Asian Access will be doubled. This is cause for celebration, for you and me both! I also want to thank you for your faithful support. It's because of your prayers, the investment of your time and energy, and through your financial support, that you helped lay a solid foundation for Asian Access. Through your love and support, the body of Christ is coming together in unity. Relationships are being restored, churches are being planted, the love of Jesus is being displayed and God's Kingdom is advancing across Asia! You are truly the unsung hero behind the story and impact of A2 and I want you to know how grateful I am for you...

Joe talking with A2 participantsNot long ago, I had the privilege of being with some of the alumni from Asian Access in South Asia. What a privilege it was sharing with them and hearing their stories. After sharing briefly about the heart of Asian Access for our alumni—seeing a vibrant community of servant leaders… leading the Church across Asia—we then broke into small groups. Little did I know the treat I was in for. These two men had no one they could confide in prior to Asian Access. But, over the two year process...
