Favorite Memories of Working at Central

Class Room: Seeing the Lord work inside the lives of students during a six-week course is amazing. Advancement: Having a donor respond with direct affirmation that our contact with them was perfectly timed for what they were experiencing at that very moment. Prayer: Having the honor to pray for and with our donors on a frequent basis.
