Ecclesiastes 3:3
“…there is a time for building up.”

Without a doubt, Central is in a season of God-given health and growth right now. With that, we have a window of time to respond and make the most of this season – not just for this church – but capitalize for the Kingdom of God. With His help, by Easter of 2024, the ministry of Central will enlarge in 2 ways:
  • Additional parking will be added on the west side of the building.
  • 20-year-old pews and carpet in the main building will be replaced.
  • The upper-middle portion of the worship center wall will be pushed back to make space for an additional 200 seats.
  • Central will begin to open strategic campus locations. 
  • After prayer and fasting, the decision has been made to launch our next location in CARBONDALE, IL ; a city where 51% of residents are currently UNCHURCHED.

Through over a century of ministry in Mount Vernon and through recent success of the WSIL broadcast, countless seeds have been planted for the cause of Christ in Southern Illinois and the surrounding region.
We have the opportunity, the obligation, to do everything possible in cultivating them.
NOW is the time to harvest.
For His glory, for His Kingdom, this is the season for enlarging, spreading out, and building up in Jesus’ name!
Join us as we do everything we can - everywhere we can - to Build tHis House!


Commit to seeking God's guidance for every part of this season of expansion.
From construction to phone calls, there will soon be opportunities for you to be involved as this new location becomes a reality. 
Help fund the mission and vision of building up God's Kingdom here in Southern Illinois and beyond!
Select “Carbondale Start-Up” on the drop down menu.
Tell your friends and family in the Carbondale area that Central is opening a brand new campus in their community. 

In this exciting season of God-given growth and expansion, Central will open our first multisite campus on Mar 03, 2024, in CARBONDALE, IL. It will take $500,000 to start this ministry, and this weekend we GET to take part in providing for this exciting need! Please PRAYERFULLY and JOYFULLY give what God leads you to contribute as together we work to expand HIS Kingdom in Mount Vernon, Carbondale, and beyond!
You must each decide in your heart how much to give. And don’t give reluctantly or in response to pressure. “For God loves a person who gives cheerfully.”
