“Call upon me in the day of trouble; I will deliver you and you shall glorify me.”
— Isaiah 50:15

Are Christian leaders even reading the same Bible as the Church?

Recently I came across a book that caught me by surprise. Retired Bishop Hwa Yung wrote an excellent critique of the modern ‘leadership’ popularity within the Global Church and World Mission: Leadership or Servanthood?: Walking in the Steps of Jesus.

About

Changing the Few Who Change the Many

Women in Ministry is a ministry under Asian Access that serves women leaders in East and Southeast Asia by providing transformational leadership training in three main areas: Spiritual Formation, Leadership, and Missions.

We meet in selected cohorts creating a learning community to foster growth both as a disciple of Christ and as a leader.

 

 

 

 

 


History

It began in 2007 with a leadership team

Women in Ministry (WIM) is a ministry under Asian Access (www.asianaccess.org) that serves ministry leaders in East and Southeast Asia. It is a highly relational program to develop leadership skills among women leaders.

Women in Ministry began in 2007 with a leadership team emerging from a highly committed Bible study group of women who had met for three years prior and understood the need for extending the kind of fellowship and teaching they had shared.

This training program developed in East Asia through relationships with more than 60 house church pastors who graduated from Asian Access training since 2002.

Since then, Women in Ministry continues to grow organically out of relationships, already having expanded to a few more countries. 

 


Reasons

Women in Ministry"I'd been wanting to have and be a part of something like this for a long time—mainly because as a pastor's wife I couldn't find a friend who was in the 'same boat'. This meeting was a blessing, Thank you for being sensitive to the Holy Spirit and organizing this for us."
—Participant

"The beginning class on spiritual formation was very simple, easy to learn, and understand. Thank God I am able to have discipline in my life much more than before. The last class about leadership was an eye-opener for me in many areas. I definitely shared these with my team."
— Church Leader

"This program has been a God-intended one. It has come at the right moment of my lfe. I am so blessed and overwhelmed by the prayers and prophetic words, too. It is an affirmation of God's wonderful love."
— Participant

"Every time we met, I learned how to tend to my garden, prune the unwanted stuff which hinders my growth and try to bear fruit for the glory of the Lord. The teachings I have received have undoubtedly made me stronger and bolder to be an effective witness for the Lord."
— Participant

 


Prayer

“Prayer lays hold of God’s plan and becomes the link between His will and its accomplishment on earth. Amazing things happen, and we are given the privilege of being the channels of the Holy Spirit’s prayer.”
— Elizabeth Elliot

Prayer partnership plays a key role in what we are about. WIM has been given the privilege to partner with God to serve women leaders in Asia with training in leadership and Christian formation, but we acknowledge that anything God wants done must first be bathed and birthed in prayer.

Our desire is to connect each participant in the WIM program with a committed intercessor who would stand in the gap and cover her during the course of the program. We also meet bimonthly on Zoom to pray for various topics within the WIM ministry. If you would like to join us, we would welcome your prayers.
