Joe & Silk Handley

Rebecca, Rachel and John


Serving as President



Bio: Joe & Silk Handley

 

Background Information:

Joe celebrates 9 years serving as the president of Asian Access in July 2017. It is an honor and privilege to serve such an incredible community. We see and experience A2 as a family and we love that. There is no greater joy than walking beside such amazing movement leaders "to see a vibrant community of servant leaders leading the Church across Asia… who unite the Church, multiply leaders and congregations, and extend the transforming power of the Gospel."

Family:

Becca, our oldest daughter, is married to Lowell Gutknecht and we couldn’t be prouder of them. Lowell is progressing rapidly in his career and Becca has the most encouraging spirit. Her creativity in all areas of life is such a joy to watch and she has certainly caught the travel bug from her father!

rachel and quan 2017Rachel, our second daughter, is heading into her final year at San Jose State University — a school with a noted reputation in Rachel's field of interest: illustration and animation. And, the big news of this year is that she recently got engaged! Her fiancé hails originally from Viet Nam which gives fuller expression to our experience of Asian culture. We’re delighted to watch their engagement develop!

Our son John is entering his senior year of high school at Christian Academy in Japan. He’s a budding economist with an emerging passion for philosophy and politics. We're exploring university options in the U.S. and U.K. this summer as he tries to discern the best place to learn and grow in this next season of life. We’re proud of him!

 

Ministry Assignment:

Joe and Silk strive to offer their best for God’s highest “for such a time as this". They trust that the Lord will provide the funding, focus and faith to see the fulfillment of A2’s vision: "To see a vibrant community of servant leaders… leading the Church across Asia…" who are living out our mission, "to unite the church, multiply leaders and congregations, and extend the transforming power of the Gospel."

 

Words of Wisdom:

This verse has been central to our call these past nine years:

And the things you have heard me say in the presence of many witnesses entrust to reliable people who will also be qualified to teach others. - 2 Timothy 2:2.

Asian Access has this same spirit that the Apostle Paul had for Timothy: in-depth discipleship of pastors and leaders. In the words of our founder: “Our vision is to empower your vision!”

cam working teamAt Asian Access one of our core goals in our mission is to “unite the Church”. We put it this way, we develop leaders… “to unite the Church, multiply leaders and congregations, and extend the transforming power of the Gospel.”  Jesus himself highlights the importance of unity in John 17: “that they may be one, even as we are one.” He’s speaking of times when the world will tear us apart and this is his prayer to the Father that we may be unified in the midst of the challenges the world throws our way. In my lifetime, I can’t think of a more important season for...

Why A2?

Why are we serving with Asian Access?

We are serving with Asian Access because we have been praying about our calling and ministry and the Lord led us to this remarkable opportunity with Asian Access.

We believe that the church in Asia is uniquely positioned and poised to work toward reaching the unreached and unengaged people groups of Asia with the Gospel. Asian Access leverages the principle of finding, equipping and releasing key leaders (2 Timothy 2:2) through its innovative leadership development model. That is why we're so excited to join the mission!
