We are part of the Missionary Church
The Central Region is a subsidiary of the Missionary Church, Inc., therefore, we are responsible for the promotion of the work and objectives of the Missionary Church within our geographic boundaries.
We share the denomination's commitment to, "being holy people of God in the world and to building His Church by worldwide evangelism, discipleship and multiplication of growing churches to the glory of God."
Because of our relationship and shared commitments, the Central Region is governed in all matters pertaining to doctrine, polity, and practice by the Constitution and Bylaws of the Missionary Church.
Regional Executive Board
The Central Region is governed by the Regional Executive Board (REB). This board is comprised of congregational pastors and lay leaders, affirmed by the annual Regional Conference. The REB is responsible for establishing vision and direction for the region, conducting the necessary business of the region, credentialing of ministers and nurturing the health and growth of our local congregations.
