Announcing: Access Tampa!
It is with great joy that I am able to share some exciting news with all of you. In September of this year, Access will be planting it’s second campus. Access Tampa will launch in preview services this fall, with full-time services beginning in January 2013. This is something we have been praying about and seeking God for over the course of many, many months, and we know without a shadow of a doubt that God is leading us in this direction.
What does this mean? Well, for starters, Access Lakeland isn’t going anywhere! We are simply making another Access in the Tampa area. Our current Team Pastor will stay on as the campus pastor at Access Lakeland. Also, we will be doing a lot of traveling to both campuses. The idea is one church, two locations.
This is where I need you guys! I am asking that you stand with us in prayer for all of these developments. As with most things where God is at work, the enemy would also like to get his hand in the mix. Will you pray for our family during this time, please? Pray that God will prepare our way in this move, and that He would bring provision in this next step. Pray that He will go ahead us of us into the Tampa area and set up divine appointments. Pray that lives would be changed and that both Access campuses would see an exponential amount of kingdom-lasting decisions made this year. Most of all, just pray for God’s will to be done. We are excited about the possibilities of seeing more lives, more change, and more connections made for God’s name.
I’m sure there will be plenty more to come on this topic, but for now, I’m just happy to share this exciting news with you. God is moving, and we are trying to stay careful to always heed His voice. Our purpose at Access has always been to help lead people into to a growing relationship with Jesus Christ. With Access Tampa, we pray to see this mission multiply into more homes and more hearts. Greater things are still to come!
