There are so many people in Southaven, Olive Branch … Desoto County!!! The need for additional churches to reach this generation of Desoto County residents is huge! The county has grown exponentially for a number of years and is still growing! A county with this volume of growth and this vast of a harvest demands more laborers! That is why we are planting Central! There is much work to be done!

Is Central for you? See if one of these describes you…

If you have been – Discouraged… it’s for you! Once upon a time you might have gone to church, but you got discouraged by something that went on and you quit going. Put the discouragement of the past behind you! Don’t let something that happened 5/10 years ago keep you from being with the family and enjoying what God has for you now. Central is for you! 

If you have been – Distracted… it’s for you! Maybe you got married and you intended to go to church, but life got busy. You had a couple of kids, work is demanding, and suddenly you realize; “It’s been 10 years and I’m still not in church.” There’s no time like the present to get involved with a brand new church. Central is for you!

If you haven’t been – Discipled… it’s for you! Discipled??? You say! That means no one has ever taken the time to invest in you, sharing and teaching you the scriptures. Sure, you may have got bits and pieces here and there at a summer camp or VBS way back, but you just haven’t seen the whole picture for some reason. Don’t think you can’t know God or understand the Bible. You can! At Central, it’s our heart to pour our life and time into you. It’s my passion that “EVERYONE” (Colossians 1: 28, 29) has the opportunity to come to know the Lord and grow in their relationship with Him! Central is for you!

If you haven’t been – Directly Asked… it’s for you! I know for some, they don’t go because no one has ever ask them too! Well… I’m asking you to come! YOU’RE INVITED! If you are not in church, you are the exact person we are looking for! We don’t want to have piles of other people to come from other churches… we want people who aren’t going! Central is for you!

If you think you’re not – Dignified Enough… it’s for you! We don’t expect you to wear a three piece suit. You won’t even find the Pastor in a tie. Don’t worry that your kids don’t have “dress clothes” to come. Those dress shoes hurt my feet anyway and I know it does theirs. There’s nothing formal at Central. We are serious about true worship and hearts and lives being changed by God because that’s what worship is all about! Central is for you!

If you want to hear more about Central, I’d love to talk to you. You can contact me on Facebook at Email me at or call/text me at 901-343-3293! I would love to answer questions and have a great dialogue about God and what’s going on at Central!

Anders, Central’s Pastor
