Central Welcomes New Director for Ministries with Children, Youth, and their Families

This month, Central will welcome Christian Antwi as the new Director for Ministries with Children, Youth, and Families. Christian joins us from Fourth Presbyterian Church in Greenville, South Carolina, where he served as a Youth Director for more than three years. Christian has also served as a Program Director at Montgomery Presbyterian Center and has completed a Masters in Religion. 

Christian will help us cultivate a strong community of faith in which children, youth, and their families can know one another, learn and grow in faith, find meaningful ways to express Christian service and spirituality, and invite newcomers to find a home with us.

As Christian begins his time with Central, ministry leaders will schedule opportunities for the congregation to get to know him and introduce him to the life of the church. In the meantime, here are a few words from Christian’s statement of faith to help you get to know him better:

I believe in a God whose love is best described as an ocean. Its all encompassing. It is vast and endless. I don’t know where it begins and where it ends. I believe that through this love, I serve a God who is the Creator of all things seen and unseen, a God who is still creating, whether in nature, heaven or in the soul of anyone. As God creates in me a new and clean heart, I recognize God doing that in others.
