What is an Acts 2 Intern?

A2 Interns are a vital part of the Campus Focus team. They are full-time staff members who have either recently graduated from college or decided to take a year off. They have signed on for a one year commitment to help us reach the campus and to give back to the ministry that gave so much to them. A2 Interns are on the front line of what we do and they will devote most of their time to building relationships with students on campus and helping to foster a deep biblical community at Campus Focus. Their life stage allows him/her to relate to students on a peer level, yet have the maturity and leadership ability to disciple students as well. They will engage in a variety of activities including launching new outreach events, engaging new students on campus, helping us run existing events, planning trips and discipling new believers. They will also attend weekly staff meetings, brainstorming sessions and other team events. Throughout their internship our staff will also be building into them. They will have regular one-on-one meetings with a mentor and have weekly training sessions where they will be taught practical ministry skills from our pastoral team.


While Campus Focus will provide free housing and help with all ministry expenses, A2 Interns are asked to raise their full salary for their year on staff. Because Campus Focus predominantly serves non-wage earning students, our ministry is dependent on the generosity of others. While The Chapel funds the majority of our college ministry, the A2 program is only possible through the additional financial support raised by the individual intern.

If you have prayerfully considered and decided to support one of our Acts 2 Interns, we thank you! Your support will help us reach students that might not otherwise be reached.

Monica Murphy

A2 Intern

I heard about Campus Focus my freshman year of college but was reluctant to go. It was something my sister encouraged me to attend and get involved with but at the time it wasn’t for me. Fast forward a couple years, I found my way to CF. Once I started to attend consistently, I knew it was something that I could no longer avoid. I went on my first CF trip and realized the importance of being surrounded by a community of believers. God used this community to ignite my faith. My heart is to connect students to God and share the immeasurable joy in knowing Him.


Brennan Earl

A2 Intern

When I transferred to The University of Akron as a Sophomore, I was looking for a fresh start. I had been chasing relationships and wanted to get my life together after getting arrested. I grew up believing in God but didn’t have a relationship or any knowledge of Him. I had a desire to learn about God, but I was lost. In the Spring of 2016, a friend told me she joined a Campus Focus small group. I didn’t know what CF was, or what it was about. Hesitant, I went to small group and CF, but was still unsure. I continued to go weekly, and a few months later I ended up accepting Christ. God used the people I met in CF to point me to Him and show me how to have a real relationship with Him. My desire as an A2 Intern is to serve the community that showed me who God is, and to point students who were like me to Jesus and the hope He provides!


Ty Young

A2 Intern

I heard about Campus Focus when I was going to The Chapel in Wadsworth. It didn’t work with my schedule at the time but when I enrolled in grad school I figured I would give it a shot. I fell in love with the culture of CF and have gone faithfully for two years. I got baptized on my first breakaway trip and then the next year I baptized two of my friends. It was at that point that I realized that I wanted to be an A2 intern. I want to give back to a community that has given me so much. I was a Christian and went to a private Christian school, but like so many others I abandoned my faith during college. I want to do everything I can do to make sure college students don’t make the same mistakes I did. I look forward to this year and what God is going to do in not only my life, but in the lives of those that I invest in.


Danielle Fate

A2 Intern

I came to the University of Akron my freshman year, having no idea why I was coming to school here, not knowing anyone in the city, and overall feeling very lost. One day I decided I wanted to check out a church group and found CF. The first time I went I was blown away with how kind people were. I heard about how small groups became your family and decided to join one of those. Through out the year, I was living the double life, being stubborn, and thinking that doing all the things my small group told me not to do would bring me happiness, but that failed every time. God never gave up pursuing me. Choosing to be all in at the end of my freshman year brought me so much joy and purpose, and now it’s my deepest desire to see other people experience the joy that comes from knowing Jesus.
