Building Central

Building Pastorates to make and grow disciples through pastorates. We hope you will join us in the journey! PASTORATES are groups of 25 to 35 children, youth, adults and seniors. These mid-sized groups…

(approximately twice each month)
The emphasis is notdriven or determined by activities. The goal is to move people on a quest to embrace and surrender their lives to Jesus. It is about sharing life together in Christ!

The Bible is our foundation and will be at the center of our time together. The Scriptures will come alive in practical and meaningful ways as the Spirit leads and guides. Communion will be celebrated each month. Pastorates share a
passionate faith in the real presence of Jesus.

Together we will pray, care and share! People will understand what one member of Central recently commented, "I don't go to Church, I am the Church and my mission is to make disciples". Pastorates will encourage, equip and empower people to share Jesus with family members, friends, neighbors, co-workers and all those who do not know yet know Christ.

Each pastorate will have fun deciding on a specific and tangible mission to do together! It might be a mission in the community or somewhere across the globe! Do we dare dream what God can do in and through Central as we give ourselves away in mission?

Each pastorate will be led by leaders who have been called and consecrated by the Holy Spirit and are personally devoted to the work of God. Pastorate leaders seek to model a life surrendered to Christ and have promised to grow in love for those they lead, strive for excellence in the their skills and adorn the Gospel of God with a godly life.
