Connecting People to God

Campus Focus has a simple heartbeat: connect people to God. Whatever your background, worldview, or experience may be, our desire for you is that you would find CF to be a safe, welcoming place where you can ask difficult questions about life and faith and, ultimately, come to know Jesus and know Him more.

Thursday nights are our central meeting time centered around connection, teaching, and worship through music. Everything else we do branches out from this time together.

Who normally attends?

Campus Focus is designed specifically for and with college-age individuals in mind. Whether you’re a student at the University of Akron right across the street, a student at another area college or university, or someone who went straight into the workforce right out of high school, you’re welcome to join us!

All CF events are open to anyone who is interested in learning more about Jesus regardless of your current beliefs.

Where and when do you meet?

Campus Focus meets at The Chapel in Akron every Thursday night at 7:30 PM in the Auditorium (at the corner of Buchtel and Fir Hill). We also have small groups that meet throughout the week (in the evenings) in a variety of locations. Small groups are a way to make our normal Thursday night crowd feel smaller through more personal connection as we take a deeper dive into what’s being taught on Thursday nights together.


Where should I park?

The Chapel is located across the street from The University of Akron so if you live on campus you probably don’t even have to drive! If you’re driving, there are several options to choose from. We have two parking lots located off of Fir Hill St. across from each other (one asphalt and one gravel). All parking is free during service hours.

For other questions or information, contact our team at, and we will get back to you as soon as we can!

Command and teach these things. Let no one despise you for your youth, but set the believers an example in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith, in purity. 1 Timothy 4:11-12

Dan Cooper

College Pastor

“As someone who came to know Jesus in college, I recognize how crucial it is to follow Him in this stage of life. Knowing Him changes everything, especially how we live in the present and how we establish our plans for the future.”

Every Thursday night we meet for a time of fellowship, worship, and teaching.
