Nurturing a Love Relationship with God

  • "From the Inside Out" means everything in discipleship

    Edmund Chan's Message #1

    Edmund Chan speaking at A2 Global Leaders' Summit 2018"The most important reality we live in is the unseen world. Ultimate reality is the Kingdom of God." – Pastor Edmund Chan

    Pastor Edmund Chan encouraged our global leadership community through several profound teachings on discipleship in Malaysia recently. And, he walked with us through meals, discussions, and even an outing to the city. What a beautiful example for us as we seek to live lives more rooted in Christ. His first teaching focused on Entering the Sanctuary from the words of Asaph in Psalm 73...

  • A Fish Out of Water

    fish out of the water free 500pxTen years ago, Pastor Paul started a church, and for the past three of those ten, he’s been part of Asian Access in a South Asian country. He’s now planted eight churches from that first church plant but he learned something profound the last few years that will impact his ministry for years to come. As Pastor Paul was sharing his strategy paper, he said: “A relationship without God is like a fish out of water.” Paul was referring to serving as...

  • ALL IN with God

    all in 500x221Asian Access recently reviewed our values as a mission. What a fascinating journey and valuable learning experience it was! We spent hours in dialog throughout the movement at every level: volunteers, staff, alumni, faculty, board and reference council. It was nothing short of amazing to see things come together. As we honed the various nuances and prioritized down to three core characteristics, we came up with three core values. The first is...

  • Are you in the Word?

    Joe and MikeA Penetrating Question

    Not long ago I had the privilege of taking part in the Leader Development Consultation. Asian Access was one of the co-sponsoring organizations and it was a joy being there with so many global leader development specialists. Many were there from Asian Access teaching and facilitating various workshops and training sessions. One highlight for me was connecting with Asian Access leaders and one encounter caught me by surprise: though it shouldn’t have! I was sitting next to Mike Hoisington, one of our faculty members who asked me this penetrating question, “Joe, are you spending time in the Word?” You gotta love Mike. He puts it right out...

  • Being Intentional about Christ's Presence

    Kavanah is the Jewish term for being intentionally attentive to God's presence in every aspect of living. For example, I always invite God to get on the bicycle with me when I go for a ride. I often sense his presence on the bike. I dialogue with him processing events as I drive in the car-and he often interjects comments or directives. We are not all gifted the same way. However, every believer has the Holy Spirit and can communicate with-and receive whispers from-the God who...

  • Don't miss God's presence in times of crisis

    birdbath mark timberlake GvZnX8p4HF8 unsplashMy favourite place in my house is in our lounge room looking out of a bay window into our garden. One day, I felt a strange prompt; this garden needs a bird bath. So I purchased a bird bath and placed it in the garden. To my surprise, it wasn’t long before the local birds discovered this newly installed bird bath. News travelled fast. Around dawn and at dusk, a number of birds would appear at our bird bath to splash and enjoy a cool drink...

    But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. — Matthew 6:33

    Masako and I are praying for you today! More than anything else God wants us to love Him with all of our heart, soul, mind and strength. This is the way God designed us to live. Living in love relationship with Him connects us with the Source of grace, mercy, blessing and life...

  • Focus on the Outcomes

    a2 outcomes sml

    What do we want to see as the result of our work in the life and ministry of each participant?

    Asian Access seeks the following outcomes of our work in the life and ministry of every participant.  We feel we're successful if the pastor is...

    1. Living in a love relationship with God.
    2. Growing as a Christ-like leader.
    3. Reproducing disciple-making leaders.
    4. Planting multiplying churches.

    The fifth unspoken outcome of launching a church multiplication movement is entirely up to God. Yet, with His blessing, the first four outcomes can actually result from specific steps Asian Access takes. In other words, there are practical things we can do in structuring our program in order to help achieve these outcomes.

  • How Asian Access impacted me

    man hidden identity“We were busy, but with no priorities. Doing lots of ‘ministry’, but it was superficial. Nine years wasted. It was ‘Preach here! Evangelize there! Plant that church!’ We were all running around on our own. We were not reproducing ourselves. It was all we that we knew. Then we got involved with Asian Access. We learned how to...

     

  • Identifying Leaders: The Asian Access Approach

    ND gathering 2015 web 500At Asian Access, we have been affirmed for our ability to identify leaders who are right for our program. We’ve had numerous requests to share what we believe we have learned. So with humility, let me offer a few thoughts on our approach. The Asian Access approach is rooted in a core value: a commitment to developing a deep love relationship with...

  • Knowing Jesus Intimately * Our Love Relationship With God

    David Dayalan, National Director of Asian Access/IndiaThese last few days I’ve had the privilege of sitting with fellow pastors in Asia preparing for an important gathering coming up in March for our ministry. It was an invigorating experience because we spent a good deal of time on our knees praying for God’s direction and waiting on Him to guide us in the coming years. Our key focus was and is to strengthen our mission by reinforcing “The Essence of Asian Access”. Core to this essence is our “Love Relationship with God” and we prayed...

    A few weeks ago, Asian Access held our annual fall national directors gathering virtually due to travel restrictions from COVID-19. While not ideal for us, it was such a rich time of fellowship given the limitations of in-depth relational connections via digital formats. Nevertheless, most were delighted to see one another, commune together, and grow in Christ. We spent a great deal of time resting in the public reading of scripture, especially meditating on Psalm 84:5-7. 

  • My heartfelt thanks for your ministry

    writing-letterDear A2 Community: I am a graduate of Class IV in my country. This is just to express my heartfelt thanks and appreciations for your ministry in Asian Access. I have found out myself these years that I keep preaching again and again on the topics you have taught me, "Love Relationship with Jesus". The more I've preached about this, the more I found the importance of the subject. Now I am also translating...

  • Shopping with my wife is like Walking with God!

    Shopping in JapanLiving in Japan brings all sorts of new life experiences for me. Stateside I focus mostly on ministry and family but here in Tokyo, Silk and I share house duties more because she is teaching and we live in a world that requires us to do more teamwork when it comes to daily living. Areas where I try to help out are weekly shopping, cleaning the dishes and once in a while laundry. No one trusts me with cooking so this is the best I can offer and all of these things I rarely participate in stateside. It certainly helps me grow as a Christ-like leader. It helps me develop character, one of the biggest challenges in Christian leadership today...

  • Small is the New Big

    Pastor RajivPastor Rajiv recently shared with me his compelling story. It was powerful to hear what God was teaching him. Prior to joining Asian Access, Pastor Rajiv was “on a journey of big.” He enjoyed a very prominent position at a large church. However, as he reflected on success, he wondered if his ministry measured up. He began questioning the real impact of his kingdom work—despite his popularity and notoriety. As Pastor Rajiv grew through the Asian Access learning community, he began seeking the Lord in fasting and prayer...
