About Our Team

Our Experience

With over 50 years of experience in the church or in corporate organizations to using their gifts and talents to fulfill the ultimate purpose of the Church.

Our Philosophy

Serving with a degree of divinely ordained excellence, where Christ is first and His church is a close second!

We have ministries that offer various services to disciples and the general community. While this is great news, it is important to remember that planning, organizing and monitoring the various services, activities and events require the steadfast dedication of several individuals who work day and night to keep things running smoothly. Most people only know about and see the end products, such as the weekly worship services, annual revivals, the church summit, and the Church Anniversary. What they don’t see are the people behind the scenes, the team members who are responsible for the daily operations of the church. Indeed, they are true leaders. Without them, Central would not be the awesome church that it is.

Our Senior Pastor

Faithfully serving out of a deep love of Christ and fierce commitment to effective ministry.

Reverend Anthony L. Riley, M.Div.
