New Waumba Land Director

We are excited to announce that we filled the position of Waumba Land Director! Access Church is excited to announce the addition of Doug and Janie Hurley.

Doug and Janie are eager to lead in this area of our church. Married for six years with six nephews—all under ten years of age—and their first child on the way, the Hurley’s are living Waumba on a regular basis!

Doug grew up in Ohio, but calls the southeast “home” after spending the majority of his adult life here. In regards to living in Jacksonville, Doug say’s, “We moved away from the south five years ago, and we had an amazing experience; but our hearts always had a pull to get back here…back home. We are back near family, back where our hearts are at peace, back where we belong.”

Doug’s undergraduate work was at Ohio University (not the school of “the Buckeyes”, although his loyalty belongs to the Buckeye team!). He attended Austin Peay State University for graduate school, and he will soon have another Master’s Degree from Trinity Evangelical Divinity School.

Doug and Janie love Jesus Christ and “are excited to facilitate a culture where we are loving Christ, loving each other, and loving life.” Doug and Janie became familiar with North Point by fulfilling one of Doug’s passions: Downloading great sermons/podcasts and listening to them on roadtrips or on long runs through a park. North Point podcasts were a staple on Doug’s Ipod for the past handful of years!

Doug began at Access October 1. Look for the Hurleys in the hall and introduce yourself. They can’t wait to meet you!
