15 years since inception.
A Vision of REACHING the lost with the message of God’s love. TEACHING them through a relevant word and heartfelt worship. RELEASING people to minister who are prepared and passionate for Christ. This was the vision God gave our founding pastor, Lonnie Johns, for Christ Central. Beginning in Lake City, Florida, Christ Central now has 2 campuses with over 1400 members and 10 Christ Central covenant and connected churches in Florida and Georgia. Partners of Hope (our missions organization) has ministered in over 30 countries with more than 30,000 decisions for Christ.
Through faith and works,
We’ve seen God do some very powerful things – over 30,000 people have been reached and we are blessed to continue to serve our community, nation, and world through our ministry.
While we may be “out in the woods…”
Christ Central sits on a beautiful 50-acre campus in Lake City, Florida. Though Christ Central is in a rural setting, we have the latest in sound, lighting, and video technology designed to present the Gospel with a spirit of excellence. Our 825 stadium seat sanctuary with over 65,000 square foot of ministry space houses a variety of ministries, including a 150 seat children’s sanctuary and a 300 seat youth sanctuary. Our foyer includes a large lobby, coffee bar, bookstore, and we also are blessed with complete recording and television studios. We also minister with a food pantry, medical storage for missions, a gymnasium, fitness center, dance studio, and baseball and football fields. All for the purpose of reaching, teaching and releasing this generation for Christ.
