    EV11.4: Asian Church combats discrimination against women

    Pastor Jeyakaran shares how Powerhouse Church tackled the issue of full empowerment for leadership for both men and women the simple way—by releasing women as well as men into all roles of leadership in the church. Jeyakaran reflected, “God wanted us to champion the cause of releasing women into all positions of leadership the church." This has not been without controversy.

  • Looking Ahead to 2017 Initiatives

    2017 holds a lot of promise for us this next year. Asian Access is really thrilled with what’s in store, and I'm excited to just share with you a few of those ventures that are upcoming.

  • Women Hold Up Half the Sky!

    A2 WIM2016I just came away from an inspiring working session.

    3) Reproducing disciple-making leaders;
    4) Planting multiplying churches.
