Deacons - Central Church of Christ


Our deacons are qualified men chosen to lead in areas they have been gifted. These men have been found to be worthy of respect, sincere, honest and faithful. These qualifications can be found in 1 Timothy 3:8-12. If you need assistance please contact the deacon in charge of that area. If you are not sure which to contact you may also contact any of the elders.
