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 award-winning strategic partnership. Recognized for its innovation, this partnership 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, catalyzing 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.

Serving a Japanese Church
— 2+ years —

Minister alongside a Japanese pastor, be mentored, and serve a congregation to help it grow.

Japan team to NepalSilk and I were talking about the earthquake in Nepal. She shared on video the story that Japan recently sent a team to minister to the people in Nepal, because of course, Japan knows exactly what it feels like to experience a major disaster with their earthquake, tsunami and nuclear meltdown a few years ago.

So a team went there from Japan. They were they were literally the hands and feet of Jesus. They were helping to clear out a park area, so that the children can play again. So what a blessing it was that our brothers and sisters in Japan came alongside to minister to those in Nepal.

And that is the power of partnership, Friends. Thank you for partnering with us. You are a part of our ministry, not only Japan and Nepal; but together we are reaching out with our brothers in Christ—arm in arm—helping the people in this world today.
