Welcome, Sarah Peckham, Waumba Land Director

We’re so excited to welcome Sarah Peckham to our Access Church staff as our new Waumba Land Director. Waumba Land is our environment for preschoolers. Our mission in Waumba Land is “to make a first impression of the heavenly Father in such a way that it makes a lasting impression on the heart of a child.” Sarah is passionate about this mission and about leading and supporting volunteers while partnering with families. “I’m excited that I get such an awesome opportunity to show God’s love to the smallest people at Access,” she said.

Sarah visited Access for the first time when her husband, Darin, was asked to play guitar. “I was hooked immediately,” she said. “The message was practical, and I knew our daughter, Ruby, would have a great time in Waumba Land.”

Andy Stanley is coming to join us for a day!

How would you like to spend a day with Andy Stanley, learning what he is most passionate about?

Deep & Wide is a one-day conference with Andy, and it’s right down the road in Orlando!

All Access volunteers are invited to join us November 9, so we can learn together how to make Access even more irresistible to unchurched people. It’s a day designed to help us turn up the irresistible in our programming, preaching, and community presence. Andy will share what he’s learned in the past 25 years about creating churches unchurched people love to attend. The day will be structured around four talks by Andy along with two extended Q&As. The content will be practical, actionable, biblical, and field-tested.

You, our volunteers, work so hard to create environments at Access Church that unchurched people love to attend. Because of you, God has used Access to change so many lives. Just scroll through this blog some time and read the awesome stories you’ve helped shape.… Read the rest
