Clay Howard

Communications Director
Clay runs our communications department, makes creative videos, creates graphics, runs social media, runs production during services, and assists with all sound, light, and visual production.

Clay takes his coffee with two shots of espresso over ice, with cream and sweetener and if he won the lottery he would buy a real life, functioning pirate ship.

Sarah Bennett

Children's Ministry Director
Sarah oversees Central's Children's Ministry (pre-birth through 5th grade).

Sarah takes her drip coffee with a little bit of half & half and NO sugar, but she will drink fancy coffee if she is out as long as its not super early in the morning. If she won the lottery, she would take a trip to New Zealand and spend all of her money there.

Tiffany Howard

Worship Director
Tiffany leads Central’s Wednesday night and Sunday morning Modern Worship Services.

Tiffany takes her drip coffee black, with a little sugar or she drinks vanilla lattes…unless its fall, then its all about the PSL. If Tiffany won the lottery, she would buy an espresso machine… and a big enough backyard to have “all of the puppies."

Judy Lies

Director of Traditional Worship
Judy is the Director of Traditional Worship at the Sunday, 8:30 service.  As such, she provides organ/piano music for the service, chooses the hymns, plans the special music and arranges for guest musicians.  Judy is also the choir accompanist and has joined the Freedom Ringers.  

Judy drinks coffee by the gallons, but she like it strong and flavored the best! If she won the lottery at this stage of her life, there really isn't anything that she thinks she needs.  So after making sure that her mom, siblings and children/grandchildren were taken care of, she'd probably establish a charitable foundation......and take a major vacation!

DAVE WHELAN

Pastor of Visitation and Care
Dave's role at Central is to identify and build relationships with people needing pastoral care, continue to recruit and equip our Eucharistic Partners and to educate and inform the congregation about the intention and direction of the caring ministry.

“[How do I take my coffee?] In a cup. Blacker the better…the coffee, that is. The cup can be any color.” If Dave won the lottery, he would buy whatever his family wants. And maybe a Lear Jet.

Tom DrehmEl

Minister of Discipleship Living
Tom works to connect with the community outside our church doors and see how we can join in with God’s work in action to live out our catch phrase of “Loving God, Loving People!” He believes that Worship and Bible Study, although important, are not the end of our faith adventure; they’re just the beginning.

Tom doesn’t drink coffee, as it keeps him awake and cuts into his nap time. However, he has been known to have a glass of wine while sitting by the firepit in his backyard. Tom wouldn’t try to win the lottery... "having to think about what to do with huge sums of money would send my head spinning and would probably misdirect me from keep The Main Thing The Main Thing."

Jennie Owen

Waumba Land Coordinator
Jenny works in Waumba Land caring for Central's kiddos ages 0-4 years during all 3 services.

Jenny doesn’t drink coffee, but rather saves the coffee for others who enjoy it. If she won the lottery she would by 2 houses, one for herself & one for her mom since she helps her so much.
