Executive Vice President

Bio: Elliott & Lori Snuggs


Background Info:

We (Elliott and Lori) first met in August 1983 when both went to Japan with Asian Access as short-term missionaries. Now, over 30 years later, we are still serving with Asian Access, though married and working in the U.S. headquarters office. Elliott is from Texas and Lori is from Pennsylvania. So God had to work to get us together first in Japan and now in Los Angeles. Elliott has an M.Div. from Fuller Theological Seminary in Pasadena, CA and a Masters of Management Arts from the Peter Drucker School of Management at Claremont Graduate University in Claremont, CA.

Ministry Assignment:

Elliott is the Executive Vice President at Asian Access. His primary responsibility is to assist the president in the area of organizational management. His primary focus is on strategic planning, launching new initiatives, and facilitating key leadership teams.

Words of wisdom...

If you think God might be calling you into missionary service, don't say "NO." Remember Jonah! God has a way of getting you where you need to be, and if it is Japan, an airplane is preferable to a big fish! 

When you're in Asia, be sure to...

Enjoy the sights, sounds and smells of a completely different culture. What a great opportunity!

Funniest story of life in Japan...

One of my (Elliott's) students in Japan told me in 1983 to cut back on sodas. When I asked him why, he couldn't figure out what exactly to say in English, but finally came up with the phrase, "because it will melt your bones!" Good enough reason for me!

What we've learned here...

You don't have to force anything. God will put you in the right place to use your gifts and abilities for his kingdom. There is no better place to be than in the center of God's will for your life.

How is God blessing your life and ministry?

God has blessed us incredibly with a wonderful church, a wonderful family and a wonderful team of people to work with at Asian Access. Recently, Elliott has had the opportunity to do more teaching on strategic planning in Asia and is enjoying doing that in various cultures. In addition to his work with Asian Access, both Elliott and Lori had the opportunity to serve the Third Lausanne Congress on World Evangelization where Elliott was the manager of the Cape Town International Convention Center for the gathering in October 2010. We are tremendously thankful for God’s call on our lives.

Why A2?

Why are we serving with Asian Access?

We are serving with Asian Access because we believe in the importance of developing leaders in Asia.
