Prayer Ministries



Prayer Partners pray with those who come forward after worship services with specific requests. God has done incredible things during these short prayer times. Prayer Partners is not counseling, but a way to support those who need a lift up. Prayer Partners can serve after the service they attend. Contact Paul Covert for more information.


Intercession teams are pray-ers who pray in our prayer rooms during the various worship services. Our intercessors pray for those leading and attending each service. We also cover specific topics prayer during that time which may include local/global outreach, the homeless, current events, families and youth, to name a few. Contact Paul Covert in the Prayer office for further information about which service would work for your schedule.

Uninterrupted Prayer Team (UP TEAM)

The Web Prayer Team prays over the prayer requested submitted by our Prayer Partners during weekend services and through the Central website.

eMEN and eWOMEN are rigorous, prayer accountability groups that report to each other via the internet. Participants work on the disciplines of daily prayer, praying with their spouses, Bible study, exercising, reading, and praying for their neighborhoods. These life changing groups meet quarterly for a group dinner to encourage each other and take part in fellowship. For details or to sign-up contact Paul Covert for eMEN and Cathy Cryer for eWOMEN.


In addition to our mens and women's specific prayer groups, we have other various prayer groups forming all the time. These groups are a great way to get connected to prayer through our various ministries at Central. 

Current groups include:
• IronMan prayer groups
• Girlfriends prayer groups
• North Africa prayer group
• Moms in Touch
• Underground Faith

Contact Paul Covert in the Prayer office for details.

Being a disciple of Christ requires an intimate relationship with God. The Prayer Ministry offers a life coaching program to help build the discipling relationship you were meant to have with Christ. A comprehensive lesson plan and an in-depth study of the Bible are part of this personal journey you experience with God to understand the reality of His sovereignty and resources. We are called to obey and implement God’s commands into our daily lives. Learn how to model a lifestyle in freedom through Christ that you can pass on to other disciples.
