Connecting people with a life that counts for eternity by building disciples that go and change lives.
Meet Pastor Wheeler

Welcome to Central! My name is Jeff Wheeler and I am the Lead Pastor here at Central. I have been married to my beautiful wife Shirlene for 34 years this July. We have three adult children and 3 grandchildren.  God is good!

It has been my privilege to be in full time Christian ministry for 29 years, in which time I also had the opportunity to coach high school basketball for 12 seasons.  God has allowed me to impact the lives of countless adults and students through coaching and teaching. I received a BA (Communication) from Azusa Pacific University, an MA (Theology) from Fuller Theological Seminary, and am in the process earning a Doctorate of Ministry degree from Trinity Evangelical Divinity School. I believe in higher education.

I began my ministry at Central on Easter Sunday, 2011. It has been a fabulous ride ever since! I have the gifts of teaching and exhortation, which means you will be challenged to grow spiritually when you hear me preach. I hope that you not only feel challenged but loved as you sit under my ministry. My sermons are relevant to people at any point of their spiritual journey.

I would love the opportunity to personally connect with you. Please visit us this weekend and introduce yourself. We are a very warm and friendly church and I know you will feel very welcome when you attend.

If you are interested in learning more about Central, I would encourage you to visit our "What To Expect" and "Get Connected" pages to learn more about the life of and ministries at Central Baptist Church.

God’s richest blessings to you!
