Current Roles with Asian Access

Advancement & Communications


Jeffrey S. Johnston

Currently, I am serving as Vice President for Advancement. This role has two parts: 1) Development (helping the president with fundraising); and 2) Communications. I am privileged to share what God is doing in Asia with all of our Asian Access constituents.

In terms of communications, some of the areas I oversee include:


Asian Access Leadership

I serve as a part of the senior leadership at Asian Access (A2) helping to provide oversight and direction for the ministry. In addition to monthly teleconferences, the team gathers quarterly to reconnect, plan and pray with one another.

Along with key A2 staff members and national directors across Asia, I also am now involved on the team that directs the ministry in 11 Asian countries (and growing).


Leader Development Liaison in Various Countries

I helped stabilize A2's leader development program in North India (2009-2011), and for the past four years, I've assisted establishing the program in a country in South Asia (unnamed for security reasons). It's a privilege to help solidify the leader development program in these countries, in which I help the national leaders in north India to establish the right DNA of the A2 program there. Our national directors have vision for beyond their own borders into neighboring countries.  Since westerners are often not permitted into some of these countries, the graduates of the program in various countries will likely help advance the work in these places. This is precisely why the current work is strategic for the growth of the Church across Asia.

Community Baptist Church

Since returning from Japan in 2011, we have been very active members of our local church. I've served as a board member, as well as on the task force for strengthening our communications efforts.
