Ministries at Center Church
A Missional Community (MC) is simply a group of people that makes disciples together. If you have been in church before, this is the way we do “Small Groups” or “Community Groups”. Connecting with an MC is the best way to start building meaningful relationships, growing in Christ, and making a difference in our community.
Center College is the on-grounds ministry at UVA where students can grow in their faith and learn how to share the gospel with others. Whether you are a Christian looking to grow deeper in your faith or you aren’t sure what you believe, we’d love to help you build some meaningful relationships and learn more about Jesus. If you submit an interest form one of our college staff members will be in contact with you.
We love kids and are passionate about partnering with you to help raise your child in Christ. Each Sunday kids learn about Jesus in a safe, fun and age appropriate environment. Over the course of 3 years, our Center Kids team will teach your child the entire Bible using the Gospel Project Curriculum. We take the safety of your child seriously and utilize a secure check in system and require background checks and training of all Center Kids volunteers.
We love students and are passionate about partnering with you to help raise your student in Christ. Each Sunday, students reflect on the teaching of our pastors and engage with their peers and volunteers to learn about Jesus and how the gospel radically affects their lives. Students have the opportunity to be discipled by members of our church who are committed to seeing them grow in their faith and understanding of Biblical truth. We take the safety of your students seriously and utilize a secure check in system and require background checks and training of all Center Students volunteers.
Growing in Christ is helped greatly when we meet regularly with brothers or sisters in Christ to spur us on. A DNA Group is a closed group of 3-5 Center Church members who meet regularly to invest in one another through discipleship, nurture (care), and accountability.
Missions & Local Outreach
We’re passionate about seeing lives changed by the gospel in Charlottesville, at UVA and around the world. Locally we partner with a number of ministries to bring the hope & help of the gospel to our community and we host an event called “Serve The City ” during which we invest hundreds of hours and thousands of dollars into our community. Nationally we have helped plant churches in Waynesboro, VA, Pittsburgh, PA and Myrtle Beach, SC. Internationally we partner with the International Mission Board (IMB) to send and support missionaries and each month a group from Center Church called the International Missions Cohort (IMC) gathers to pray for and learn about international missions.
