"Partnering with the team of Asian Access was an answer to prayer for me and my family. When I learned of the work they are doing to bring the Gospel to Japan, I was deeply moved. With Christ centered leadership training programs, aid to disaster victims and discipleship training, Asian Access is being used of God to offer the Japanese the chance to hear the Gospel and find true hope after generations of spiritual darkness. When my mother passed away in the summer of 2015, she had one dying wish, “Take me home. Take me back to Tokyo.” I’ve often wondered if her mother who gave her up all those years ago had the chance to hear about Jesus how different things might have been for her. Less than 1% of my people in Japan have heard the Gospel and seen Christ’s love in action. When you support the work that God is doing through Asian Access, you are a part of His light to the nations. The impact is eternal and much appreciated."

Ajith Fernando thumbDr. Ajith Fernando
Former National Director, Youth for Christ, Sri Lanka

"I often meet young pastors and Christian leaders who have been through the Asian Access nurturing programme in Sri Lanka. They always speak warmly of the things they learned and how it is impacting their ministries and lives now. So I thank God for this ministry."

Dr. Ken FongDr. Kenneth Fong
Senior Pastor, Evergreen Baptist Church of Los Angeles

"I’ve not only helped send our people to Japan through Asian Access, but I went with them myself. They are definitely on the cutting edge of missions in a difficult place. Asian Access is doing great things for God in Asia."

Brent FultonDr. Brent Fulton
President, ChinaSource; Editor, ChinaSource Journal

"I heartily endorse Asian Access as you are filling a vital need in the church in Asia. The emerging urban church leadership is dynamic yet fragile. They have no older generation of pastors to look up to. Asian Access' proven mentoring approach builds communities of leaders, providing needed accountability and encouragement while developing personal character and ministry skills."

"Asian Access is about coming alongside leaders who love to make a difference in their communities! Grateful for what Joe Handley and they are doing to jumpstart and sustain leaders in their competencies!"

"There's a desperate need today for business leaders to become Christ-like transformational leaders. That's where A2's marketplace training fills a strategic niche. is building on a proven track record in empowering leaders for over 35 years. Now they are investing in business leaders who want to transform their communities and nations."

Mr. G. Walter Hansen
President, Rivendell Stewards' Trust
rofessor of Global Theological Education, Fuller Theological Seminary

President, Generous Giving

"I know that Asian Access has a proven track record. Through leadership training expansion, I know their impact will multiply. Pastors will not only experience a greater love relationship with God and growth as Christ-like leaders, but will also reproduce themselves and plant additional multiplying churches. I’m especially eager to see this work grow into the marketplace sector and their new project will help them move this forward."

"It's been my delight to experience the Asian Access family several different times. And what continually impresses me about the whole operation are two things:
1. There is a humility and a focus on purpose that transcends continents and transcends cultures.
2. And it's to bring loving relationships and to foster them for leaders.
I found those two things to be throughout the system from the beginning leaders to the national directors and down to leaders that I met in India. It's a godly work done with the mindset that we are imperfect people seeking a perfect relationship to do God's business together."

Mr. Bill High
CEO, National Christian Foundation Heartland
President, Generous Life

Dr. Joel C. Hunter

"In leadership, I believe that charisma without character is chaos. That's why I appreciate Asian Access' commitment to character development. Their leadership model effectively balances the training of the heart as well as the hands and mind."

Hugh MaclellanMr. Hugh Maclellan
Chairman of the Board, The Maclellan Foundation, Inc.

"I have full confidence in Asian Access as their track record for developing leaders is strong and impressive. Their successful church multiplication model has impacted thousands of lives worldwide."

President, Ramesh Richard Evangelism and Church Health [RREACH]

"Untrained and isolated pastors faithfully minister where Christ's Church is numerically growing. Church health, unfortunately, is not keeping up with church growth. I believe strengthening pastors stands at the epitome of missions strategy today. Asian Access strategically and effectively equips pastoral leaders in needy regions so churches can grow to be spiritually healthy. I am honored to serve on their reference council."

waybright greg 200x200Dr. Greg Waybright
Senior Pastor, Lake Avenue Church

"Asian Access is one of the most effective ministry organizations in facilitating genuine respect-filled partnerships across cultures to further our Father’s global mission. I have witnessed how A2 has drawn together the experience and formal training of Jesus-followers in one culture with the spiritual vitality and ministry innovation of those in another culture in which the church is experiencing rapid growth to do remarkable things to His glory.

I believe God has raised up A2 to play a rather unique role in God’s promise to establish a people made up of every people group, language and nation to “with one voice glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ" (cf., Rev. 7:9; Rom 15:6).

I recommend Asian Access as a gospel-centered, biblically directed, cost-effective global ministry partner."

jwallace webDr. Jon Wallace
President, Azusa Pacific University

"Gail and I have been supporters of Asian Access for more than 20 years. We believe in their mission, their people and we have deep respect and admiration for Joe Handley and his visionary leadership."
