About Our Team

Creative People. Faithful Servants. Forward Thinkers. Compassionate Spirits. Empathetic Hearts.

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!

The daily administration and management of Central have become quite complex in recent years. This is due in part to the significant membership growth that we have experienced since the late 1990s. In 1998, Central’s average attendance at one Sunday morning worship was less than 250. Combining the two services we now have on Sundays, our average attendance is about 850. We have doubled the number of 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, the Church Anniversary, and this course. What they don’t see are the people behind the scenes, the staff members (Ministry Staff, Office Staff, Key Officers, & Associate Ministers) 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.

    Varon Johnson

    A/V & Media Chairperson

    Varon Johnson has been coming to Central for over 30 years, but he has been an active disciple for the past 10 years. His parents (Deacons James & Ollie Johnson) have been here for 30 plus years. Mr. Johnson felt that he wasn't growing spiritually at his last Church, so when he heard Pastor Scott preach and teach, he and his wife decided what a better place to worship. He is so glad that they made the decision to come to Central. He has experienced tremendous spiritual growth since being here.
