Next Generation in 10 Years (NG10) Pastor



We believe that God is calling Central to reach the next generation for Christ (ages 0-25 and their families) in the next 10 years. We call this initiative “Next Gen In Ten” or “NG10”.  The year #2 NG10 focus will revolve around developing a college ministry and restructing our marriage ministries.  The Pastor of NG10 (NG10P) will serve as part of the Pastoral staff and has responsibility of expanding and developing this initiative. The NG10P will work under the supervision of the Executive Pastor of Ministry (EPM).


Competencies and expectancies:

  • Passionate about reaching the next generation and their families for Christ

  • Embrace and embody the mission, vision and distinctives of Central

  • Minimum 5 years leadership experience in programatic church ministry or para-church ministry (particularly in college ministries)

  • Self-starter and innovator who can strategically develop new systems, initiatives, teams, and events

  • Engage congregation to “pioneer” their spiritual gifts, talents, passions, and hobbies in innovative ways to reach the next generation and their families for Christ

  • Foster volunteer “participation” throughout Central, so everyone who calls Central their home church is an active volunteer participant and not a passive spectator
