I’m On a Journey

858 Views0 Comments

Matt Stoltzfus - Lead Student Pastor I’m on a journey, and for me it has been a crazy journey to this point. A journey of many highs and many lows and without it all I would not be here at Central today. I grew up in a very conservative home (I was Amish till I was four years old). At twelve years old I told my parents that I wanted nothing to do with God. I always thought I had to be perfect to gain God’s approval. I thought that I had to pray a certain way, dress a certain...

Fish Stories

Scott Jones - Gilbert Campus Pastor There’s an old story about a fisherman who was hugely successful. Each morning he’d take his small boat out on the lake and within a few hours he would return with a boatload of fish. People wondered how he did it. One day a stranger showed up and asked the man if he could go along the next time he went out fishing. The man said, "Sure, meet me here tomorrow morning at 5:00 and we’ll go out." The next morning the two of them made their w... Read More...

Cal Jernigan - Senior Pastor As I write this post, I am sitting on a plane returning from Israel with the Elders of Central. Israel these days, like so many days of old, is a deeply divided country. It’s no longer the Northern Kingdom of Israel in conflict with the Southern Kingdom of Judah (a conflict in which both sides believed in the same God). These days, it is a country divided between the three major world religions: Judaism, Islam, and Christianity. We went there on ... Read More...

Monte Hunt - Worship Leader If you attended a Central service last weekend we heard the challenge from Jeremy to be open to people. Many of us live in neighborhoods where it is very easy to wake up, get ready for work, get in our car in our garage, drive to work, do our business, drive home, park in our garage, make dinner, go to bed – and never come into direct contact with another person the entire day. So for many of us this challenge is very real: are we open to truly ... Read More...

I Should Have Never Gotten Married

Bri Johns - Student Pastor & Director of Student Programming In 2006, my husband Jake proposed to me on the Huntington Beach Pier the day after Thanksgiving. It was incredibly romantic and an exciting time in life. We were young and in love and planning for our future together in whimsical ways. Fast forward to today. We’ve been married for almost 8 years, live in Arizona, own a home, and have two toddler boys who keep us very busy. Life is bliss. Life is full. Then... Read More...

Dean Kuest – Glendale Campus Pastor This past week, my two oldest boys (we have five), who are in college, came home for Spring Break. It was a last of sorts for our family as our oldest, Kyle, is getting ready to graduate this Spring and then get married in the early Summer. Everybody together one last time before our family expands. Pretty exciting times for our family. Kyle and I spent a late evening talking about life, school, marriage, and God. It was one of those sacr... Read More...
