Supporting Our Ministries
“Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moth and rust do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.” -Jesus
Access Church receives no funding from North Point Ministries. Since 2008, Access Church has relied entirely on the prayers and financial support of our local attenders and visionary donors in order to accomplish our mission of leading people into a growing relationship with Jesus Christ.
In 2015 we were completely dependent on the giving of our attenders and visionary givers who don’t attend Access but believe strongly in our mission and strategy and believe that Jacksonville needs a church like Access. It’s our hope that in 2016 the priority percentage giving of our attenders will exceed expenses and visionary giving can be focused on strategic long-term objectives and capital acquisitions.
We are so grateful to these visionary givers, and to the 190+ families and singles who support Access regularly. Please continue in your generosity, and help us meet or exceed expenses, so that we can take bold steps toward what’s next for Access Church.
Thank you for supporting Access Church!
