We are striving to show Jesus to the community, reaching people in their brokenness through service, relationship, and cooperation.
When we say "missions" at Central, we mean both local and foreign works, from our front yards to the far sides of the globe.
Local missions mainly refers to our missions partnerships with five non-profit organizations doing Gospel work here in Amarillo. These local partnerships are also supported by Central's annual Missions Month.
Local outreach designates the ministry that occurs on our Central church campus. These ongoing works -- Loaves and Fishes, Care Central, Prayer Breakfast, etc. -- provide regular week-to-week opportunities to show God's love and grace in our immediate church neighborhood. These local outreach ministries are supported by Central's annual operating budget.
