Senior Pastor

Pastor Chris Tomlin began working in the ministry over 20 years ago in music, youth, and bus ministries.  In 2002, he and his wife, Charity, started a church in their home in Memphis, TN.  In 2009, the Lord moved them and their sons, Isaac and Drew, to Central Baptist Church.  Chris served as a youth worker, Sunday school teacher and a deacon at the church.  And in 2010, Charity helped to begin a preschool program at Central Baptist School. In June of 2013, the Lord opened the door for Chris to become the senior pastor.  Pastor Tomlin has a love for the Word of God and the work to which God has called him.  The Tomlins were blessed in September 2015 with a miracle baby girl, Grace. >> EMAIL PastorTomlin<<
