Re|Start is a plan to clarify and refocus what we do at Central around the vision.
You spoke and we listened.
With the long pause that the pandemic provided, we asked for your feedback (see below) and spent time with how you answered. You saw what God is currently doing through Central as well as the possibilities for Central going forward. We took a long, hard look at all that Central is and does. After discernment and prayer, we believe God is calling us to clarify and refocus what we do here in order to bear more Kingdom fruit. And you are a pivotal part of that. By the transforming work of Christ in you, you in turn are at work in this world for the sake of those around you.
