LARRY KIRK

LEAD PASTOR

Larry attended Bible College in Baton Rouge, Louisiana where he met and later married his wife, Pearl. After a year with Master’s Commission, he joined the staff of Central in January 1995 and has ministered in many areas of the church.
Larry's heart is to see Christians live out their Christianity through generosity and service to others, journeying together to find meaning and purpose in life. He leads both of Central's campus churches, both in White Marsh and in Bel Air. Larry and Pearl are the parents of two boys, Garrett and Brycen, and make their home in Bel Air.

TERRY KIRK

FOUNDING PASTOR

Born and raised in West Virginia, Pastor Kirk came to Baltimore in 1980. He is a strong preacher and teacher of the Word and leads this congregation by example to love God and love people. Two things have sustained Pastor Kirk through more than thirty years of ministry, his love for Jesus and his love for people. His desire to help people is a passion that has not faded with time – it has increased. Though the methods have changed, the message remains the same – Jesus Christ, the same yesterday, today and forever.
Since founding Central, Pastor Kirk has put his heart into connecting with people, helping them to move past preconceived notions about Jesus to find the reality of a Jesus that can change their life.

THE DREAM TEAM


Special thanks to the hundreds of volunteers, our Dream Team, who offer their time and talent to serve at Central week after week. From the parking lot to the classroom, from the coffee bar to the production booth, our Dream Team members are the friendly faces you’re most likely to see around our building making Central the welcoming environment that it is and assuring things run smoothly behind the scenes. We couldn’t do it without them!


He is the one we proclaim, admonishing and teaching everyone with all wisdom, so that we may present everyone fully mature in Christ. To this end I strenuously contend with all the energy Christ so powerfully works in me.
