WHAT IS ACCESS

There is a town in South Carolina called Due West. Many of the older homes in this quiet, little academic village have beautiful front porches where people can enjoy a slower pace of life. We wave to passersby, chat with our neighbors, and embrace our community. We like to call it “front porching.” In a similar way, ACCESS embraces a wider community through Christian distance education. While we may not be able to “front porch” together in physical space, I trust that we can come together through this association to expand our reach as a vital part of Christian and theological distance education. Consider this web site a front porch where we network with each other, share resources, and engage in leadership opportunities.
