Central 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.
