Leading is establishing direction and influencing others to follow that direction. But this definition isn’t as simple as it sounds because leadership has many variations and different areas of emphasis.

Because we believe this AFC is building a leadership team to help in many areas of need and ministry in our church. We have Co-Senior Pastors Mike and Chris Kinney who are our spiritual leaders and set the vision for our church. Under their leadership we are building a team of leaders to extend Jesus to our community through a varied schedule of ministry and outreaches. Building a team is in line with the teaching of Jesus who instructed us to go and make disciples of all.

If any member of our team can help you please feel free to call.




Pastors Mike and Chris have led the Akron Foursquare Church as senior pastors for 29 years.  They have a vision for raising up young leaders, serving the community and giving themselves away.  Pastor Mike’s preaching centers on “It’s True God loves you”, encouraging us to grow in God’s love which will produce mature Christ Followers.  Pastor Chris has a heart for women, especially hurting women and leads a Ladies Bible Study program at AFC.
