A Place to Be Myself - Christina's Story
Growing up, I attended the traditional worship service at First United Methodist Church Richardson. After college, I was fortunate enough to travel to South Africa on a mission trip with the church in 2014. While there, I met my now husband who was youth pastor and leader of the contemporary worship service at the partner church. I knew we’d need to find a community in which to call our own when he moved to Dallas. I wanted to find a place where we would both be comfortable being ourselves. That fall, Access sponsored a small Josh Wilson concert which I attended with friends. I immediately felt that this was the place I could be myself, worship the way I wanted and be active in the community. I knew I wanted to be a part of this tight-knit community.
Access is a place that offers great music, a good message and personable people that treat you like family. You can be who you are without fear of being judged for who you’re not. Each Sunday, I leave feeling inspired to take on the week.
