Working in concert for greater fruitfulness in Japan
Asian Access' tagline is "Developing Leaders. Multiplying Churches." At our core, that's what we're about. Each statement represents a key objective in our ministry across Asia. Both are centrally important to what we're trying to achieve toward extending the kingdom of God.
Today and tomorrow in Tokyo, Asian Access' "JCGI Network" in Japan is holding its first ever "Coach Leader Summit" to try to do both of these fundamental tasks hand-in-hand and thus better.
For many years, JCGI has been effectively running two types of regional networks in Japan: 1) Leadership Development Networks and 2) Church Planting Networks. These two ongoing networks have specialized, focusing intently on their own objective—either of training pastors or of fostering church multiplication. The leaders of these networks serve as coaches and facilitators. Coaches in each type of network have gathered independently to pray for God's blessing, report on progress, and plan for future networks.
What's different now?
Under the direction of Rev. Hiroshi Kawasaki, JCGI Network decided to strategically realign its efforts to work more synergistically. For the first time, 21 pastoral leaders and 3 missionaries in both types of networks are meeting for a combined two-day "Coach Leader Summit," asking some key questions:
This summit is currently underway (July 26-27, 2010). Will you join us in prayer that God inspires this group of leaders to join efforts and work in better concert with one another? Pray that God will use these networks to develop even more leaders and foster a church multiplication movement in Japan.
