High School Pastor



Family Ministry at The Chapel has a rich history over its 85 years of existence. With the growth of young families in the church and the revisioning of what Family Ministry is today, this ministry continues to hold a high value in the church. Not just content to relegate family ministry into silos, The Chapel highly values children and student participation in its other ministries. The next High School Pastor will continue to build upon the solid foundation that has already been laid, casting vision for staff, parents, and volunteers currently serving in the Student Ministry. There is freedom here to be creative, to build, and to do ministry with a great team in a growing community of believers. This is a great place in which to raise a family, and an amazing church for families to belong to and thrive!

Church Description *

The Chapel has had a rich heritage of intentional and relational evangelism that has seen a significant impact in their surrounding communities and around the world through their extensive mission work. Over the years, explosive growth has led to the planting of several autonomous churches and in the last ten years the addition of four campuses in the greater Akron area.

Today, around 5,000 adults worship each weekend on their five campuses. The mission of The Chapel is to see every person Believing in Jesus, Belonging to Family, Becoming a Disciple, and Building His Kingdom. They are known for expositional preaching and for being a safe place for the broken and hurting. The Chapel takes seriously their responsibility to share the Truth with grace. They also have a strong reputation in their community for civic engagement and their efforts in racial reconciliation.

Senior Pastor Tim Armstrong came to The Chapel in 2014 and has brought compelling vision and strong leadership. The Chapel is experiencing renewed joy and energy and is poised for new heights of effectiveness in the years to come. They have a vision to plant 10 additional campuses over the next decade.
