About Us

Central is gathering strength through the power of God’s Spirit who dwells in the midst of this community. There has never been a more urgent time to prepare women and men for creative service in churches and communities. We are grateful for faithful friends who sustain our mission through their giving and prayers; YOU are essential to our flourishing. We are grateful for faculty members committed to formation for ministry; and we are grateful for learners whom God is calling to declare the urgency of the Gospel. 

There are two particular emphases that are currently focusing our ongoing mission: Congregational Health and Global Christianity

Throughout the pages of our website, we invite you to learn more about Central.  We have a long history and yet find ourselves more like a new start as the Spirit refocuses us for the future.

Paul describes the approach of his mission team in 2 Cor. 6:11 with these words: “Our heart is wide.”  God is making the heart of Central Seminary wide in this time of hopeful promise.  We invite you to allow the Spirit to widen your heart, also, as you journey in prayer, giving, and hope with Central.
