Christ Central Ministries was born in a June 1994 downtown prayer meeting when a man came asking for food. His request was met, more came, a great need was recognized, and the challenge was met. The new organization was officially established and registered in 1997.
By 2002, the need for focused educational support for the ministry was recognized, and Christ Central Institute was established as the educational arm of the ministry in Wagener, SC. In addition to that residential campus, other sites are used for classes and for internships. A new facility in downtown Columbia, SC, opened in 2016. Under the leadership of a graduate of CCI, there is also a branch in India that has just celebrated its first graduation.
Now, approximately fifty Christ Central Ministry locations, most led by servants who received training from CCI, are meeting basic needs and offering education, community development, medical care, recovery, and volunteer opportunities to citizens and communities in need. Would you like to join?
