SIM is a century old catalyst for global mission with more than 4,000 workers serving across six continents. Dedicated to prayer and care, we bring good news to hard places because there are people living and dying without the gospel.

Asian Access

Asian Access began in Japan by coming alongside visionary pastors and leaders to partner in new ways to grow the church. Now with a network across Japan and a strong history of partnership, together we work toward a movement of Christ-like leaders and disciple-making churches.


SIM and Asian Access have embarked on a new strategic partnership. Is is truly a new way of doing mission together, each bringing their own strengths and committing to a common Kingdom vision. All A2 workers serving in Japan come through an SIM sending office and are members of both organizations.

Together, SIM and Asian Access send workers to Japan to partner with local churches in holistic outreach to make disciples and develop leaders and churches, catilyzing innovation for reaching Japan for Christ. Each worker benefits from the strength of their SIM sending office and the strategic work of Asian Access in Japan.


What does this assignment involve? Learning a new culture. Teaming with other believers. Worshiping with them. Serving under a Japanese pastor. Making new friends in the community. Sharing Christ with them. Linking them to the church. Using your gifts, abilities and interests. Making disciples. Trusting God to build His church...
