Carl Ruby has pastored here at Central Christian Church since fall of 2014. He grew up on a farm in Michigan, had a 27 year career in Higher Education, and founded a non-profit organization serving immigrants before accepting the invitation to join the good people at Central. Carl doesn't have the typical background of most pastors, never having been to seminary. He earned a Ph.D. in Educational Leadership and never envisioned being a pastor until God brought him through a career transition and opened up a wonderful opportunity. His passion in ministry is to equip people to be like Jesus and make the world more like Heaven.
