Establish Sustainability

What long-range view does true partnership require?

Asian Access keeps the big picture of indigenous ministry in mind. From the outset in a given country, Asian Access sets out to decrease reliance over time. We desire to establish a sustainable ministry in every country usually within a 12-year period.

Sustainability means that, over time, each country will require fewer resources -- primarily money, faculty and guidance -- from outside, especially the West. More funds generated from within the country, more internal faculty and greater decisionmaking lead to greater independence.

Where is each partnership headed?

In reality, there will always be interdependence rather than complete independence, because we are the body of Christ. We are finding that faculty from across Asia are increasingly effective at helping one another grow deeper than if each country was isolated. In summary, then, our goal is independence in financial matters, but creative collaboration in most other areas.
