Our mission is to lead students into a growing relationship with Jesus Christ by creating environments where students prioritize their relationship with Christ, influence their friends, and experience personal ministry.
Student Ministry at Access is the place to experience great worship and in-depth teaching and to be connected into a small group. Small groups are the heartbeat of our student ministry and one of the most important things we do as a church across all environments.
Our final events of the summer include a Wild Adventures trip, a pool party, and KAOS: Bonfire Bash at the beach! Check out our Summer page for details, and invite your friends!
KAOS events are large-group, over-the-top, wild-and-crazy, I-never-knew-church-could-be-like-this times. KAOS events are safe environments where middle- and high-school students can invite their friends to have a great time, meet other students their age, and hang out with great adult leaders who will invest in their lives.
KAOS events are also an opportunity to introduce students to who Jesus is and the wonderful reality that he offers life and life to the fullest! We do this in a non-threatening, relevant, and engaging talk during each event. We encourage students to bring friends from their school, neighborhood, and sports teams to KAOS events. We’ll do everything we can to make sure they have the time of their life.
Our next KAOS events are:
KAOS: Bonfire Bash
September 9, 6:30-9:30pm, at Victory Lake. For everyone to invite friends! Cost: $10. Wear a swimsuit and bring a towel. Serving burgers and hot dogs.
KAOS: Progressive Dinner
Save the date: November 18. We’ll post the details as soon as we have them!
Vertical Reality is the fall retreat for Access students in grades 6-12. With a great worship band and amazing speakers, the focus of Vertical Reality is on growth in your walk with God. But there’s always plenty to do for fun, too!
Vertical Reality 2017 is happening October 27-29. Visit our Vertical Reality page to learn more and register.
The Living Room (college-age)
The Living Room is our environment for college-aged students! It’s a place to meet and find community with other college students, grow in your faith, and have fun while you’re at it!
Inside Out (high school)
At Inside Out students are put together in small groups by grade and gender. They meet together to connect with each other and their leaders and to grow in their relationship with God. Typically groups will work through a series centered around a relevant and biblical topic as it relates to faith and everyday life in middle school. Small-group leaders provide another voice encouraging, loving, and standing with students and parents during these critical years.
To jump into Inside Out, just show up, or contact Rich.
Transit (middle school)
Transit meets Sundays at 4:00pm. We have hang time, worship, game time, a short message, and time for small groups. First-time guests? Pre-register your family before you arrive!

Here’s where the rubber meets the road! We believe that if middle- and high-school students want to grow in their relationship with Jesus Christ, it is critical for them to learn to be the church, not just attend church. Student Impact (SI) is where students grow by strategically serving others.
Every Sunday students can be found leading small groups in Waumba Land and UpStreet, running sound, computer graphics, and lights, or directing traffic.
To sign up for SI, visit the Information Table in the lobby on Sundays, or contact Hope.
MyLife and W3 are weekend camps for our high-school and middle-school students. These are times for students to hang out in their small groups, enjoy fun activities, participate in great worship sessions, and build fantastic friendships!
We’ll post the details of our 2018 weekend camps as soon as we have them.
