The Love Akron Network is an organization that calls Christian leaders of the greater Akron area to pray, unite, and collaborate in ministry for the advancement of spiritual and social transformation in our communities by tearing down the walls that divide the colors, cultures, and congregations, to build bridges of understanding. This year, Love Akron has embarked on an initiative to Love the City To Life. As part of the initiative, board members Leia’ Love and Emily Barger are taking a tour around the community called the “Love’Em Tour,” to spread love to local businesses and non-profit organizations. The goal of the “Love’Em Tour” is to highlight organizations and provide them with an opportunity to promote what they do and share how the community can collaborate to support their mission and vision.
Our first stop on The Love Akron “Love’Em Tour” is the Upper Room House of Prayer. This organization meets every Saturday from 6:00PM to 8:00PM in the mansion just behind Akron First Assembly Church at 1175 Market St. Directors of the Upper Room, Ryan and Monica Jarvis (Worship Leaders of Akron First Assembly), are focused on uniting the body of Christ across denominations and congregations in prayer and worship. Each 2 hour session has time slots led by musicians from a number of local congregations with a specific prayer focus related to issues facing the community.
