Bless, Get Blessed, Celebrate & Pray!

I see a side of church that few get to see. The more I know, the more I wonder how anyone can get through life without a church family. Every day is filled with opportunities to meet needs or to have our needs met. We need each other. In the last few hours, I’ve had […]

I’m pumped!

There are so many amazing things happening at Access right now. This isn’t intended to be all “hype-y” and not to be a big advertisement, but I wanted to share a few amazing things that have happened and are happening! We’ve added 129 people to our attendance in the last 10 weeks. Strong, consistent growth. […]

Geico, Jehovah’s Witnesses, and 15 People!

Thursday morning, I got into a small fender bender on my way to work. I was already having a bad morning and it got a bit worse… $500 deductible worse! It’s almost comical how God uses seemingly insignificant moments in my life in significant ways. This morning, I called Geico to make a claim on […]

3.23.14 Rewind

Such a great day at Access yesterday! Here are a few highlights! We kicked off a new series in Lakeland called Honor. We’re starting this series in Brandon this Sunday!

3.9.14 Rewind

I am spent. There is a difference between being exhausted and spent. Exhausted just means that you’ve run out of energy. Spent means you invested your time and energy in something that matters. Today was a great day at Access. Here are a few highlights. Today was my first day back in Brandon in several […]

Waiting, Dating, Mating

We’ve gotten so much positive feedback about our current series, “Waiting, Dating, Mating.” Relationships are difficult. I want to see people do everything they can to get it right. Got this email today from a lady in our church. “…this series is seriously changing my life. I’m recently divorced & I’ve found myself going back […]

Easter is Coming!

Hey Access! I’m convinced that this Easter is going to be the best Easter in the history of our church! Help us invite your friends this week in one of these 3 ways: 1. Personally invite them! – Statistically 8 out of 10 people will say yes to an invitation to Easter! 2. Use Facebook and […]

Why we do what we do.

There are some seasons of life that seem really easy, and others that have major challenges. These last few weeks have been filled with both great and easy moments, as well as very challenging ones. Today was a beautiful reminder of why it matters. I love my church.
