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

EV11.4: Asian Church combats discrimination against women

Pastor Jeyakaran shares how Powerhouse Church tackled the issue of full empowerment for leadership for both men and women the simple way—by releasing women as well as men into all roles of leadership in the church. Jeyakaran reflected, “God wanted us to champion the cause of releasing women into all positions of leadership the church." This has not been without controversy. He shared, “We know there is a big debate...

EV11.1: Is the Church mirroring culture or transforming it?

Pastor Jeyakaran shares the shocking reality of how the Church in his country has embraced the prevailing prejudices of his culture: caste, gender, and skin color, and how this has crippled the advance of the Gospel in his country. From Eastern Voices, Vol. 1 "Breaking Through The Barriers" (chp 11)

burmese couple screenshotDuring our recent graduation week in Myanmar, we were at a special dinner one evening and one of the participants burst out in appreciation for Asian Access. She was so exuberant that you would’ve thought Asian Access was Jesus himself! I asked her, can we have you share on video and she not only said “Yes” enthusiastically but suggested her husband, who I later learned was on the local Myanmar Working Team, should join her. Wow, what a powerful couple and amazing testimony. You won’t want to miss it! It’s five minutes but boy is it worth it. You’ll catch their enthusiasm in this video but I must confess, they are even more crazy powerful in person....
