We are Central Students!

 

We love God, love people, and have a passion for seeing students’ lives impacted by the gospel.

Daily Discipleship

A friend loves at all times, and a brother is born for adversity.(Proverbs 17:17) Which leads us to, “iron sharpens iron, and one man sharpens another.”(Proverbs 27:17) Discipleship happens in and through relationships. We believe the best way to disciple someone is to get to befriend and get to know them first. If you or your student is interested in joining a discipleship group please contact pastor Akil at Akil@centralsanford.net and he will connect you with a group that best suits you.

 

Sunday Morning

Small groups 9:30 & 11:00am, meet in room 262, are a time where students hang out with friends, fellowship with fellow believers, and most importantly a time to study the Bible from fun and gospel centered teachers.

 

EVERYDAY

Oh, magnify the Lord with me, and exult His name together!(Psalm 34:3) Our model for ministry is Gospel, Relational, Disciple, and Missional. We believe understanding who Jesus is, what Jesus did and still does, and responding to Him are fundamental. Having a right relationship with God will help put all other relationships in a Christ centered prospective. Discipleship is a must and begins with time spent being a disciple of Christ and then emulating that relationship. We also believe we are constantly on mission to share the gospel with our lives and words everywhere we go.

 

WEDNESDAYS

Sing to Lord, bless His name; tell of His salvation from day to day.(Psalm 96:2) In case you haven’t heard, Encounter is our Wednesday evening student ministry worship experience. We meet Wednesday evenings in The Hangar from 6:15pm-8:00pm. Encounter is an experience designed to help develop young lives. We do this through: corporate worship for 6th-12th grade students, practical sermon series designed to walk students through the entirety of scripture over a six year process, and Central groups where students can dive deep and really talk about their lives from a Christ worldview. We believe that life change starts with an encounter! Check out our YouTube channel. Check out our YouTube channel. Central Students

Life Talks: Sunday January 20th 2:00pm-3:15pm in The Hangar Topic: “Gender Roles”
Have you ever thought to yourself ‘I wish I was better prepared for…’? We want to better prepare families for conversations about the real life situations students are facing. It is never a wise to assume students and parents understand how to communicate with each other about all topics. There are some topics and situations life will throw at us that we may have thought wouldn’t ever occur in our lives. So, we have a goal to offer seminars, Life Talks, once a month to the parents of our students with the purpose of helping them discuss and walk through some of these situations. Some of the topics we will cover include: navigating social media, ethnic diversity, family ministry>student ministry, depression, gender roles, sexuality, dating, self harm, bullying/harassment, giving verses tithing, substance abuse, porn, resent/bitterness, significance of discipline, X>church, Christ>church, and how to spiritually lead. We see the parent as the greatest student pastor in their child’s life. Sometimes we all just need a little help.
