St. Luke’s Youth

St. Luke’s is the home of The Light Teen Center which is directed by our Youth Pastor, Jerry Smith. Our mission is to meet teens of the greater Akron area where they are and to come along side them with God’s unconditional love through a variety of programming to suit their needs. We are located at 3810 Ridgewood Road in Copley, directly across from Copley-Fairlawn High School. We are in a newly renovated facility behind St. Luke’s Ministries with a garage band venue, café, game room, art/prayer lounge, large meeting space, patio with a fire ring and more. Our pre-screened volunteer staff members are warm, caring and equipped to meet the ever changing needs of today’s youth. Our programs are designed for students in 7th-12th grades.
