Job Description:

Central Ministries has experienced rapid growth over the last 5 years and has partnered with another area church creating a second campus. Central Ministries is located in Fort Wayne, IN which is the 2nd largest city in Indiana. The church is non-denominational and conservative in its theology; but relevant and contemporary in its approach to ministry. The body of believers is committed to sharing the Gospel with the lost and discipling believers to the glory of God. We are located a very short drive from the Ohio line which allows us to draw a number of congregants from a large area. Our goal at Central Ministries is to love God fully and love people genuinely. We hope to guide people to spiritual maturity to become effective ministers of Jesus Christ. 


Central Student Ministries (CSM) is comprised of CSM Middle School (5-8 grades) and CSM High School (9-12 grades). Our vision is that students in 5-8 grade would move from a faith that is there because of the parents' faith, into a growing, thriving relationship with Jesus of their own. The goal is to set students up for High School where they can continue to grow, but really begin to learn what it looks like to grow into a lifelong relationship with God and to share their faith with others. We strongly feel that Middle School is a crucial and highly impactful time in a student's life.
