Propelling vision and mission through celebration, connection, education, and inspiration.

Same Mission, Fresh Model

Feb 8, 2023

Each one of us has a story of how we’ve been captivated by the Gospel. But how do we share the unchanging hope we’ve found in Jesus with a rapidly changing world?

At Access 2023, a variety of speakers will share their own stories of how the Gospel changed their lives and offer encouragement as we look forward to the future of ministry. In addition to large gatherings for teaching and worship, this conference will also provide connection points with others in ministry, small group discussions on specific topics, and plenty of time to rest and recharge.

This year Access will take place in St. Petersburg, Fla., on July 11–13. Sessions, meals, and workshops will take place in the historic Mahaffey Theater. Group rate rooms for lodging will be available across the street at the St. Petersburg Bayfront Hilton Hotel. In addition to restaurants and coffee shops in the area, the St. Pete Pier is a short walk away and has a playground, splash pad, green space, and a beach.

Registration for Access 2023 opens in late February. More information will be added when available at Sign up to receive the lates information about registration opening, discounts, meal tickets, activity info, and more here.

Access is the national conference of the Charis Fellowship. Held annually in July, it is a vital connection point for people in Charis churches and ministries. The three-day conference is designed to build relationships, deepen biblical knowledge, and strengthen ministry. Each day consists of teaching and worship during celebrations, smaller group instruction and discussion, shared meals, and time for fellowship.
