Meet Central Community Church:

Central Community Church began as a series of prayer meetings in the early 1900s and was built into a strong church with a great legacy of faith. In 1941, a building was built and dedicated as the official and permanent church meeting spot, which spurred growth as a fixture of their community. Since 1974, Central has been growing steadily, including expanding their sanctuary, updating their name and initiating a new season of vision for the church, and building a new sanctuary for 3,200 people in the late 1980s. These are examples of just how much God has done in their midst, and just how much He has planned for them in the future as they continue to grow.  Started as prayer meetings in 1907

They have had a long legacy of strong pastoral leadership, and are known and admired for their traditional worship and great facilities. In addition to this, they are currently building a chapel facility to further facilitate a ministry of weddings and funerals as a way of reaching their community. Central Community Church is a great place for believers in Wichita to call home and invest in community!

What it's like to live in Wichita, KS:CCC-Stock-2018.11-7_1200x900 (1)

Wichita is the largest city in Kansas (most of Kansas City is in Missouri). Surrounded by wheat fields and oil-industry facilities, this traditional midwestern city has a diverse agricultural and industrial economy. In part because of its invulnerable central U.S. location, World War II aircraft design and production facilities were located in the area. Today, aviation firms like Beech, Cessna (Raytheon), Stearman, Lear (Bombardier), and Boeing all have plants nearby, and there are numerous supporting precision parts and engineering firms in the area.

Downtown Wichita has undergone renewal. Arts and entertainment facilities contribute to a strong community feel. The workforce is well-educated and paid, the Cost of Living Index is very reasonable with good housing values to be found. With 170 miles to Tulsa and 190 miles to Kansas City, local features are popular. The area ranks consistently well in categories of healthcare, schools and education, and employment opportunities. All in all, Wichita is a great midwestern city to call home!
