In response to our tagline, people often ask us...
What does it mean that Asian Access is changing the few who change the many?
It means finding the right leaders and using the right process to transform their countries from the inside out.
Through 50 years of ministry, we have developed the A2 leader development program that is effective at deepening a leader's love relationship with God, helping them grow in character, and become more fruitful in ministry. At the risk of oversimplifying how we do this, we can boil our formula down to this:
- Right Leaders + Right Process + Right Time + Right Place = Changing the few who change the many.
Selection of the "Right Few" — Pivotal Leaders
We have discovered that, for this formula to work best, we need to select the "right leaders". So Asian Access works hard at selecting those leaders who will benefit the most from our program. The term "right leaders" does not mean these leaders are better than others; it just means they're the right kind of leaders who will benefit the most from our program.
Asian Access intentionally focuses on a small number of proven leaders with potential, providing a transformation process that then releases them to change the many throughout Asia. You might ask, "What is a small number of leaders?"
A2 creates cohorts of 12-15 leaders, not 25 or 250. Some leader development programs, in an effort to have big results, do offer training for larger groups of leaders. But to us, small is big; less is more.
Less Can Be More
We mold this dozen or so individual leaders into a learning community. Keeping the numbers small allow for relationships to deepen, which allows deeper life change in each participant. What starts in a few individuals naturally radiates outward to each leader's family, church, community, and even country. A few changed leaders then change many.
This may sound bold or even arrogant, but we are seeing this hold true in virtually every country in which we operate. Really. Our graduates continue to tell us what God is doing in them and through them... and they credit Asian Access for a part of this.
Sustained Kingdom Impact
Therefore, we invest in a strategic few to change a country and a continent. And we leverage the right people and right process for making the greatest difference for the Kingdom in Asia. And once a cohort graduates, we do it over... and over again.
We sustain change through a proven process that takes the region’s most promising leaders and equips them to have a disproportionately significant impact in their countries, cultures and continent.
Look what Jesus did with just a few people...
“These who have turned the world upside down have come here also…” — Acts 17:6 (NKJV)
Asian Access is the flywheel that knows how to build momentum by finding and investing in those most capable of achieving and sustaining it. That is key. These are leaders in it for the long haul who build on the momentum that God has been doing (and that A2 activates) and they devise the networks and systems to sustain momentum for Kingdom change. Asian Access changes the few who then, in turn, change the many. Momentum is the result.
Cultivating an Ecosystem of Kingdom Leaders
And if we faithfully do this over and over and over in various spheres of influence and different places across the globe—focusing on taking pivotal leaders through the right process, what we end up cultivating is an ecosystem of kingdom leaders who are following their call and changing the world.
And thus, we are changing the few who change the many.
