    As we reflect on 2022 and prepare for 2023, several highlights come to mind: 

  • Can we double the Christian population of Japan?

    This was the most encouraging Japan National Pastors’ Conference I remember in my 14 years with Asian Access.

    The theme as set by Pastor Yoshiya Hari, Asian Access/Japan National Director, was “From 2020 to 2030” and Pastor Shinji Takita’s words captured it best:

    Dear Family and Friends,

    Joy to the World… This season is one giving us pause to reflect on the most important gift the world has ever seen: the Lord has come

    "Who does this?"

    Andreas Thapa from Nepal shared this with me thanking me for the way the Asian Access family has rallied around their family. His mom, Sareeta, has been directing the ministry of Asian Access/Nepal from its beginning and sadly, the last few years, she’s been battling ALS (Lou Gehrig’s Disease).

    Asia (MNN) — Asian Access holds its annual Global Summit at a secured location in Asia this week. We’re not revealing the event’s location because Gospel workers attend from dozens of Asian countries, some of which are hostile to Christianity.

  • The World Is Changing Fast. Are You Ready For A Seismic Shift in the Way You Lead?

    Polycentric Mission Leadership

    Toward A New Model for Global Leadership

    The world went through some monumental shifts during my tenure in mission leadership. While many had been talking about partnership and collaboration, as well as paternalism and colonialism for many years, it was during early in my 30 years of ministry that major changes were burgeoning in many ways. Of course, the last few years this has accelerated on many fronts making these issues of critical importance.

    Mission Visionary’s New Book Calls For Global ‘Leadership Shake-Up’

    Asian Access’ Handley spotlights ‘polycentric,’ inclusive leadership model for missions, nonprofits, businesses

    ARTESIA, Calif. — A California-based mission leader with a vision to shake up the way Christian mission agencies, churches and businesses create their leadership strategies has released a new book on the topic.

  • Disciplemaking course takes fresh look at following Jesus today

    Disciplemaking is not an everyday word. It may be mentioned at church, but even there it can feel foreign to our common experience. To be honest, the word “disciplemaking” is not in the Bible and my auto-correct continues to tell me it’s not a word in any standard dictionary.

  • Polycentrism as the New Leadership Paradigm

    SIX COMMON THEMES FOR A TRINITARIAN APPROACH TO LEADING MISSIONS

    By Joseph W. Handley, Jr.

    Polycentric—Why? And, what’s that?1

    As the world grapples with ongoing tensions, polarities, and ever-growing challenges, I am convinced that we need a new approach to leadership. It was this concern that compelled me to study global leadership and see if another form of leadership could prove pivotal to the world in which we lead for this era of God’s mission.

  • A Leadership Model for a Polarized World

    Polycentric Leadership: a leadership model for a polarized world 

    The past thirteen months have been one of the most disruptive seasons in my lifetime. A global pandemic, one of the worst economies of the century, and a divisive political environment were all contributors. We have faced lock downs, loss of incomes and jobs, and the disease itself—as we still do at this time.

  • Virtual Community

    “And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near.”
    — Hebrews 10:24-25

    A2 Prayer Meetings

    This past year, our Asian Access family has been meeting monthly for prayer in addition to our online cohorts and those few countries who are actually able to meet in person. In the face of the pandemic, we are learning to live out the wisdom of this passage from Hebrews as we are such a community-driven ministry.

  • Leaders Matter

    The last few years, the idea of leadership has taken a beating. Whether it’s the critique of “elites” in our cultures or the overuse of the word leadership by various training and educational institutions. In many ways I agree with these concerns and it is why Asian Access does what it does in focusing on Christ, Character, and Servant Leadership.

    Today, I mourn the loss of one of my mentors and friends, Jon Wallace. As you'll see in this wonderful tribute by his children (below), Jon was a special man of God.

  • ReIGNITE Hope

    I am so thrilled to join the board of a great ministry birthed from my home church, ReIGNITE Hope. Several years ago, seeing the plight of the homeless and the prisons of LA, my former colleague Steve Bunyard launched this ministry and now he’s serving with them full time. I joined the board last fall because I’m so proud of what they are doing and because we have a mutual interest in partnership.
