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.

Monte Hunt - Worship Leader If you attended a Central service last weekend we heard the challenge from Jeremy to be open to people.

Wes McGarrah - HS Pastor Mesa Campus Last week at CRASH I was reminded of the wide spectrum of students that you encounter in Student Ministry. Just when you think you have things figured out, they throw a curveball at you and you’re standing there scratching your head wondering how on earth you just had two completely different experiences in the same ministry on the same night. I’ve titled this blog Marshmallows to Murder and here’s why…
