Our focus is on intentionally equipping a few key leaders at a time, through a 2-year transformational process—accelerating their capacity—so they can lead with increasing vision, character and competence.
We are a vibrant community of leaders, striving to unite the church, extend the Kingdom, and transform the cultures of Asia for the glory of God. Essentially, it starts with helping each leader thrive and empowering them toward the mission to which God has called them.
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.
"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."
"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."
"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."
“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.
