Edmund Chan keynote speaker at Asian Access summitEarlier this year, we were extremely fortunate to have Edmund Chan share a few days with us at the A2 Global Leaders' Summit. As our keynote speaker, he brought three messages that stirred our hearts. If you didn't get a chance to read Joe's perspective regarding these messages, each post is listed below. Near the end of the A2 gathering, I was eager to sit down with Edmund and have him share more wisdom on leadership with the Asian Access community. I've posted two particular clips below: one where he endorses Asian Access and one where he exhorts our leaders. I'm sure you'll be encouraged by both...

Not long ago, I got to watch one of our local faculty members in action… It was so fun! Dr. A, as we’ll call him for security reasons, who is blurred in these photos is an expert on Orality, a focus of modern missions since the majority of the world is either Oral Preference Learners or Illiterate. He did a superb job of training this group of pastors on the topic of “Christ and Culture.” It was inspiring watching him. We played games, had dialog, and listened to his lectures. They were all designed to keep us moving and involved. It enhanced the overall learning experience because...

Thank you for your overwhelming support!joe headshot 2018 600px

Hi friends! I want to thank you for your overwhelming support this year and let you know about a unique year-end opportunity that we're really excited about. Asian Access was extended a $250,000 challenge gift. So if you want to help us match that challenge, we have until December 31st. So far, $78,000 has been given pre-Christmas. And we're hoping these next few weeks that we can meet that match meet the entire $250,000. That will enable us to...

apu grad two doctorates 600px#azusapacificuniversity

This past Saturday, Azusa Pacific University bestowed two of Asian Access Leaders with honorary doctorates. Both Meng Aun Hour from Cambodia and Rev. L from another Asian country we cannot name for security reasons received doctorates in divinity. I was proud to be there with them and hear APU president Jon Wallace share of their immense accomplishments. It was a special day for Asian Access as my two colleagues received this honor. Now, when they lead their Bible schools and seek accreditation from their governments,...

Behold, I am doing a new thing; now it springs forth, do you not perceive it? I will make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert. – Isaiah 43:19 I was struck by hope at the recent A2/Japan National Pastors Conference in Sapporo… All of these pastors pictured here as well as several others shared stories of new life springing forth through their outreach efforts. Many of these pastors ventured “out of their normal boxes” to take their faith...

ODM chinaPrayer requested as persecution increases

Reports are coming out every few days about the persecuted church and it appears that a new wave of this type of pressure is rising. Just yesterday, several news stories released about China and these are just the tip of the iceberg:

David Kim teaching with A2.businessReflections from David Kim

A journey that began four years ago as a half step, an R&D effort, is bearing fruit with vibrant communities in the marketplace and among entrepreneurs in Asia with several potential new country launches on the horizon.

Facing Today's Unique Challenges

We are living through a season where there is more and more change, hate and reactionary times. The set of circumstances and events that challenge every believer and church lead many followers of Jesus to ask, “Why Lord?”

Graduation & Traction in Seoul

A2.business has graduated its second cohort in South Korea, and the traction that is gaining in the marketplace there for missional leaders is exciting! The cohort calls itself “Barnabas” because they develop lifelong relationships in which they encourage each other to be Christ-like leaders who multiply disciples in the marketplace. For the final session of “Barnabas 2” Phil Foxwell, ...

Asian Access’ first active missionary to pass into eternity

As you may have heard, Mike Wilson has joined Jesus in heaven, ending a very difficult journey of declining capacity over many months. While we miss Mike this side of eternity, we are glad that he is no longer suffering from his condition and has entered a home where there are no more tears, no more troubles. I want to thank you for praying for Mike, Mary Jo, and their children Stacia and Brandon these many months. We are glad that Mike is walking with Jesus in perfect health today. At the same time, we know that Mary Jo, Stacia and Brandon still feel the pain of loss this side of eternity. Do keep praying for them...

dentons and j oswald sanders 600pxRead to have fellowship with great minds

John Wesley knew the importance of reading good books when he exhorted the younger ministers of the Wesleyan Society to “either read or get out of the ministry.” Obviously, Wesley had a passion for reading in the midst of a very busy life. Most of his reading was done on horseback. Often he rode 80 kilometres (50 miles) and sometimes 145 kilometres (90 miles) in a day. His habit was to ride with a volume of science or history or medicine propped on his saddle. In the process, he consumed thousands of books. Great leaders have almost always been great readers. The apostle Paul chained like a common criminal in a cold Roman dungeon, with his work done and his life nearly at an end, could still write to Timothy...

crown 424pxThe critical battle between Culture and Values

I recall participating in a seminar set aside by a church where a group of its leaders came together to identify the values of the church. The group, seated around tables, were led through a day where the end product of identifying its key values was achieved. Much has changed in that church since that day and I daresay that there would not be many who would now remember the list of values that were agreed upon that day. Further, It would seem that there was little attempt to communicate those values to the church at large, as life in the church has steadily deteriorated with the passing of time. On reflection, I have jotted down the following insights from that experience...
