Evan Wright, UpStreet Production

EvanTheGreeterAt Access one of our top priorities is our children’s environments. We believe safety, caring leaders, biblical truth, and FUN are key elements in helping children develop a growing relationship with God. The individuals we place at the helm of Waumba Land and UpStreet believe this, too. We’re excited to formally introduce you to Evan Wright, our director of UpStreet Production.

UpStreet Production includes managing on-stage talent, lights, and sound during the large-group part of the environment. This includes working with and training our middle- and high-school Student Impact students in all areas of production. Evan believes in “pouring out your thimble.” He says, “I may not be able to teach you everything, but I’ll teach you everything I know.” According to him, this work at Access is the most amazing work he’s ever been part of.

Evan is passionate about ministry and mentoring, but he knows how to have fun, too. His first task at Access was wearing a turkey suit while singing the hit, “Call Me Maybe.” He refers to his position in UpStreet as “ringmaster of the best circus ever,” and he spends most of his weekend preparing and executing the “show.” But during the rest of his free time, Evan is an artist with experience in professional songwriting and management.… Read the rest

I Heart _____!

When we see a 2000px-Heart_corazón.svgsign, it is usually attached to something spectacular. We often use it to express our love for a person, place, or thing. While we tend to throw it around loosely on things like coffee, chocolate, puppies, or people, God intended it to mean something more.

In this series, we’ll take a closer look at the heart. We’ll address the heart as it is referred to in the Bible. It’s the piece of us that motivates us to action. It’s what drives our passions and pursuits. It’s often what guides our steps.

If your heart has ever been caught up in bliss, or broken, this series will apply to you. You’ll hear from various speakers on subjects related to the heart. Please join us beginning this Sunday, October 18, at 9:00 or 10:30am, for this three-part series. We’ll see you at church!… Read the rest

Married Life is October 17!

There is a scene in a current movie where a married couple is getting ready to go to sleep. The wife looks over at the husband and remarks, “Some of our time together really should be spent while we are awake.”

ML-Couch-300x187In a fast-paced world, it’s difficult to find time to invest in the marriage relationship. Unfortunately, we have examples all over pop culture and even down the street regarding the outcome of an untended marriage. It may not sound romantic, but scheduling time on the calendar to build your marriage is even more important than scheduling that important meeting at work.

We’re excited to offer our Married Life event, an opportunity for couples to join us for desserts and music while picking up practical marriage tools. In this session, we’ll explore the secret to making mutual submission actually work. If you’ve ever heard references from the Bible regarding submission to God and each other, you might have wondered if that was truly possible.… Read the rest
