A Note from Pastor Jeff and Carla to our Central Family


Dear friends,

It is with sadness of heart, yet a confidence in God’s leading that Carla and I believe our season at Central has drawn to a close. We arrived in Spring of 2010 and with the same sense of God’s sovereignty over all of our lives, we are stepping aside from the leadership of Central Assembly.

You have been a wonderfully loving and supportive church family to us. Words cannot express the mixture of emotions we are experiencing, yet we rest in the “God of Hope” (Romans 15:13). While Central’s history is unmatched in many ways, we are believing that its greatest days are yet ahead!

So many of you have graciously sent words of encouragement that have been so life-giving the past couple of weeks. Thank you so much and what a wonderful privilege it has been to pastor Central Assembly these past 6 1/2 years. We truly feel honored.

You will remain in our hearts through prayer, and we covet yours in this transition period. We look forward to two more weeks of ministry, extending to the end of November. Our hearts are easily filled with “thanksgiving” this Thanksgiving, as we reflect upon the precious congregation of Central Assembly!


Pastor Jeff and Carla
