Connecting people with a life that counts for eternity by building disciples that go and change lives.
2012 Elder Handbook

This Elder handbook is used by the Board of Elders as part of their duties in serving Central Church as Elders. You are welcome to review these documents, and they are made available here for transparency, accountability, the convenience of the congregation, for potential Elder candidates to review, and to provide continuity as Elder terms expire.

We continue to seek God’s will for Central. As such, these are just tools and are subject to change:
