Vernon Thornton

Minister of Worship

God blessed me and my family when He allowed us to come serve at Central alongside some of His choicest saints. I can hardly believe that we have been here 16+ years. It is my desire to continue to discover His greatness with those that He draws to the Central family as we seek to make His glory known to the community and world around us. The best way I know to do that is through worship. - Vernon

Leads Next Gen Service


The flagship of the Central Worship Ministry, our Celebration Choir, is truly a special collection of worshippers who lead our congregation weekly at 8:30a. Beyond our normal weekly worship opportunities, this group also anchors our annual holiday extravaganza Christmas At Central and our Freedom Celebration each July, along with other special emphases. Our praise teams, trios, duets and soloists emanate from this group. The Celebration Choir leads in conjunction with the Celebration Instruments.

Join the Choir


This flagship instrumental group leads alongside the Celebration Choir. This is an advanced group of musicians who continue to hone their skills so they can truly “make His praise glorious” each week. Eggs are good, and bacon is good. But eggs and bacon together are great. Our choir and instruments together make each other great!
