The mission of ACCESS is to provide leadership in the field of Christian distance education. With that in mind, we seek to highlight ways in which we can apply social networking, faith formation, and online learning to those with whom we interact, be it in the classroom, the church, or the community. Those connections are ways in which we continue to expand our reach. We look forward to co-hosting this conference with our partner organization, Faith-Based Online Learning Directors (FOLD). Harding University has graciously agreed to provide us with their beautiful campus as our venue. Invite your friends to join us for this important time of networking and learning together.
