Working in concert for greater fruitfulness in Japan

Coach Leader Summit 2010 - working groupAsian 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.

Rev. Jiro Chida shares about updates in the networks he is coaching.

What's different now?

Rev. Hiroshi Kawasaki, Director of JCGI NetworkUnder 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:

  1. What is needed to make our leadership development networks and our church planting networks more effective?
  2. How can these two types of networks cooperate and collaborate together for even greater fruitfulness?
  3. How can we get more Japanese churches involved in our networks?
  4. What changes do we need to implement to ensure these above objectives happen?

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.
