Dean Kuest - Glendale Campus Pastor I am currently reading, along with most of our staff and life group leaders, a book entitled, “The Art of Neighboring” by Jay Pathak. I hope that it is a book that goes viral at Central and that hundreds of you will read it. It challenges those of us who follow Jesus to develop the art of building genuine relationships with those who live in our neighborhoods as we seek to point people to the God who has changed our lives. If being a nei... Read More...

Jeremy Jernigan - Executive Pastor (Creative Arts/Students) It's been a crazy few weeks for me. If you read Cal's email last week you know that we've made some changes in our Student Ministry. Specifically, I've offered to oversee it and help to create the same culture in Student Ministry that I've poured into Creative Arts the last few years (I'll still be overseeing Creative Arts and preaching in the rotation). I've been overwhelmed by the positive comments I've received fro... Read More...

Cal Jernigan - Senior Pastor In my quiet time recently I found myself once again reading the fascinating book of the Bible called Esther. Esther was a Jewish woman who was made Queen by the famous Persian King, Xerxes. It’s an intriguing story filled with twists and turns, plots and subplots. As you read the narrative it appears wickedness is once again going to win and evil is going to triumph. As the suspense builds, so does the sense that the villain is actually going to get ...

Jaime Geideman – Worship Leader Recently I went to see the movie “Guardian’s of the Galaxy,” there was a line in the movie that really struck me but let me give you the context of the line. There is a character named Drax who has lost his wife & child and is seeking revenge the entire movie on the guy who killed them.

All People Go to Heaven

Aaron Pennington - Queen Creek Campus Pastor Not to be confused with "All Dogs Go to Heaven." My guess is you clicked on this post after seeing the title, and you were probably thinking one of two things. You either were appalled or concerned that I was representing poor theology, or you were excited because you have always wanted to believe that all people go to heaven. Does everyone go to that "better place" as we like to say when people pass away? One thing we all have in c... Read More...
