Meet Our Pastors


Roy Johnson

Senior Pastor

Through the Eyes of Jesus

I love to see people who love others like Jesus did. Didn't matter where you came from, how long you've been gone, how much baggage you carried, or how much help you needed.  Jesus loved and loves you. He viewed everyone he met as a future, if not already a follower.

I believe Jesus had an affectionate smile, immediately inviting you into a conversation with someone who would really listen. Someone who cared with the kind of rare empathy which transcended normal humanity. People who met Jesus were profoundly impacted.

Jesus had a passion for the forgotten, the folks who no one else wanted. The people who would make most 'religious' people nervous and uncomfortable. His compassion wasn't a social position. it was a deep conviction people mattered. Jesus was going to love you, it is who he was and is.

If you come from a difficult and troubled past, you were welcomed to join him.  He didn't spend timne focused on the past, but today and tomorrow. He saw the present in light of the future. He wasn't surprised by people's shattered lives. But He didn't look the other way either.

This is who Jesus was, and is.  This is who I want to be.

As always, it's your choice. Choose wisely.

Kevin Taylor

Youth Pastor

Kevin began his ministry at Central on January 30, 2019.  He grew up in Warren where he surrendered to the ministry at age 16 and has worked with students for 12 years. God has given Kevin a deep passion to reach students who do not know Jesus as their savior. He believes if the church does not reach the next generation the future for the church is very dark.  A big sports fan, Kevin loves the Arkansas Razorbacks, Dallas Cowboys and L.A. Lakers.  He enjoys being outdoors especially hiking.  He describes himself as a "big nerd" who loves D.C. and Marvel comics.  If you take him out to eat make it Mexican.  According to Kevin cheese dip is a food group.
