Pastor Vicki Barton

So often when you hear the word "Missions" you think of far away places that you could never afford to go to, but what I love about Missions at Central is that we recognize the mission field is all around us. I don't have to go far outside my door to see that there are a lot of hurt and broken people who need to know the transforming power of Jesus Christ. I get so excited when I see God working through our family at Central - whether it's in El Salvador or at the Central Ministry Center - to advance His Kingdom!


Our 4-part approach to missions


While we would love to send support everywhere there is a need, we have found that a bigger impact can be made on a smaller scale.


Having a clear purpose for reaching an area allows us to focus time, energy & resources in the most effective way possible.


For us building relationships is key. We want to know who it is we are reaching - to put a name to a face makes all the difference in the world.


We don't want to simply visit an area or region once and never return. We believe we are called to make a lasting investment in the areas and communities we serve. In order to do that we must minister and visit as often as we can.
