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.
