Good in some ways, but weak in others 10/3/2007

Being an ex-Catholic, I once asked a pastor what the church's stance on Catholicism was. Instead of giving me a direct answer, he urged me to attend the church's multi-week teaching seres on Catholicism instead. I don't wish to sound harsh, but it bothered me that a church leader wouldn't answer this question, even when I directly asked him if he thought that Catholics and evangelicals preached the same gospel! (I later learned that many of my acquaintances from the Chapel had a non-commital view on the same topic.) I wish I could say that this was the only distressing experience I had with the Chapel, but it wasn't. In some ways, the teaching was quite good and even inspiring. In other ways though, it was weak or careless. I think it suffers from a problem that's common to many large churches -- having some good teachers, but also having some that are weak or inadequately equpped. To be honest (and I say this cautiously), I think that many large churches, it also suffers from trying to hard to cater to non-believers. My impression is that it has bought into Bill Hybel's "seeker-friendly' paradigm a little too much, without embracing it outright. (Do a Google search on the terms "seeker-friendly" and "seeker-sensitive" if you're unfamiliar with this method.) Indeed, Pastor Larson credits C. Peter Wagner (an influential proponent of these church growth tactics) with part of his ministry philosophy. I appreciate some of Pastor Larson's work, but I find this disappointing. Again, I say this hesitantly. I know that there are good things about the Chapel; however, I'd recommend various smaller churches like Calvary Chapel instead. more

Wonderful preaching! 9/24/2005

The Chapel in Akron is by far the best non-denominational church in Akron. The pastor at the Chapel is amazing. He’s not afraid to preach from the Bible, and his integrity and passion for Christ is evident in every single sermon. I’m moved to tears nearly every visit. Because the Chapel is located on The University of Akron’s campus, parking is sometimes scarce, but with several different services on Saturdays and Sundays, the huge congregation is spread out over different times. They also have outreach ministries, Bible studies and a great children’s program with classes for every age. more

Non-Denominational Church 8/17/2005

It is a wonderful place of worship with excellent speakers for brothers and sisters in Christ. Has two campuses one at Green, OH and one at Akron, OH. Has services at both the campuses along with adult and youth bible classes. Can check out the website for the various events at both the campuses. more
