Sunday Rewind // 6.13.10

Another GREAT day at Access Church today. I love our church. Here’s a brief recap: We continue to hear stories of lives being changed. That’s what it’s about! Last summer, we doubled in attendance. We’re on track to do that again. That never happens in churches during the summer. God is definitely up to something!  […]

One mistake can ruin you

I’m saddened by the catastrophic oil spill in the Gulf. It’ll be a while before we can even properly gauge how bad it really is. I was watching the news last night, and caught a story on the economic impact on BP. Their value has fallen over 50% in just a few weeks. One mistake […]

The power of touch

Apple announced the new iPhone 4 this week. I’ll be honest – I love it.   They also announced a new feature – FaceTime. This new technology will allow iPhone 4 users to video chat with each other. AT&T predicted these new ideas 17 years ago, but I’m sure we all thought those commercials were […]

Thoughts from Jeremiah 18

Ever read a passage of Scripture and find it jumping off the page at you? Keeps happening to me in Jeremiah 18. God is our creator and He keeps creating in and through us. He keeps forming us into the people we were created to be. That process is often painful. Picture a potter. He […]

Who are your future leaders?

This morning in our staff meeting, I tossed out the question, “who are we identifying as our future leaders?” As a pastor, I feel that one of my main objectives is to help people find who they were created to be. This process can be painful, but is ultimately so helpful. Who around you was […]

Next Level…

I’ve had this unique sense that God is calling me, my family, and my church to the next level. Sometimes you can’t articulate the feeling – you just know it’s too strong to deny. To get there, I’m ready to start making some changes. I can never expect my church to go where I’m not […]

Sunday Rewind

What a GREAT day at Access today! Here’s a brief recap. Our volunteer teams are AMAZING. Seriously, they make Access such a welcoming church. Even in the summer, we continue to grow each week. I love seeing so many new faces. This fall is going to be INSANE. Rippy and the band are SO SO […]

Capturing our story…

A couple years ago, my wife and I felt God’s leading to start a church that reached young people. It’s been an amazing journey.   We’ve had quite a bit of success, along with our fair share of failures. I’ve actually considered writing a book called “How not to start a church!”  I’ll be writing about […]
