kor ls and friends 600pxHappy New Year from Asian Access!

Hear from President Joe Handley as we look ahead to 2019 seeing how the Lord might be directing our movement. Building on breakthroughs in 2018, the horizon looks bright...

joe headshot 2018 600pxHi friends! What an exciting year it's been with Asian Access this past year as we've seen a number of breakthroughs in the ministry. God has grown our ministry on a number of fronts. First off, new country development… We expanded into two brand-new countries that were really hungry for what we want to offer and what they want to see a delivered. It was so fun to come alongside and see their faces shine after their first two sessions. It's a remarkable year for us on that front. And then as we look towards the future...

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...

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, ...
