  • Are Christian leaders even reading the same Bible as the Church?

    Recently I came across a book that caught me by surprise. Retired Bishop Hwa Yung wrote an excellent critique of the modern ‘leadership’ popularity within the Global Church and World Mission: Leadership or Servanthood?: Walking in the Steps of Jesus.

    The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few; therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest.

  • Polycentrism as the New Leadership Paradigm

    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 World in Turmoil

    turmoil benjamin davies vd8DbM 5pDg unsplash 640pxLike you, all of us at Asian Access are facing the challenges surrounding our world from these tumultuous days. The pandemic has forced most of the countries we work in to either go on lockdown or at least practice social distancing and the economic conditions have been immense. Many of our partners shared basic survival needs that are overwhelming. I have a needs list from them for well over $100,000 alone just for food to feed the poor. Many have lost friends and colleagues to the coronavirus and the pandemic seems to have no end in sight, or at least is pretty unpredictable. Add to these the racial and political polarization rising in several countries...

  • A Hybrid World

    A Hybrid World bookcover thumbI was honored to be asked to review a new book that’s out that I believe is an important contribution to our ever-evolving world. This new book, A Hybrid World: Diaspora, Hybridity, and MissioDei. edited by Sadiri Joy Tira and Julie Lee Uytanlet, was developed at the Lausanne Movement and Global Diaspora Network consultation: Hybridity, Diaspora, and Missio Dei: Exploring New Horizons, hosted at the Biblical Seminary of the Philippines, June 2018. The reason I believe this book is so important is that our world is getting smaller and smaller, day by day. The impact of migration, globalization and the intermixing of peoples is pivotal to our capacity to reach the world for Christ in this day and age. I am convinced this reality will grow even more important in the years to come...

  • Inspiring Asian Leadership Forum

    00015 00030It's been a terrific week here in Seoul. I love coming here because of the vibrancy of the city and one of the cleanest and best airports in the world. I was here for the Asian Leadership Forum and on the way in learned that several old friends were in town for different events as well.

    So, we got together for some awesome Korean BBQ. It was fun catching up with friends Erwin McManus, pastor at Mosaic Church, and A2 reference council member Dave Gibbons, pastor at Newsong Church. We hadn't seen each other in quite some time so hanging out was loads of fun. These guys are doing catalytic work, and I'm proud of what they are doing for the good of Christ...
