Worship and Music Areas of Ministry


Below is an explanation of the primary music groups here at Central. In addition to these groups there are also many opportunities for vocal soloists and instrumentalists to be used in our services. If you have any questions feel free to contact Pastor Allen by phone (252-492-4215) or email. If you are interested in being a part of any of these groups please see the link at the left to fill out our Worship Ministry Interest form.

Central Worship Choir

The Celebration Choir currently consists of about 40 voices. Their primary goal is to assist the worship pastor in leading worship each Sunday morning from the platform. They are not focused on performing for an audience, but singing praise to the King of Kings and helping to see people engage in the worship to the one true God! The choir is always looking for new members and no audition is necessary. Those interested can join any time after they complete their music ministry interest form (see below). Choir rehearsal takes place every Wednesday at 7:45pm.


CentralBand provides the instrumentation for all congregational music here at Central. The typical sound in today’s music is a "band," so that’s what you’ll find here at Central. The band currently consists of piano, acoustic guitar, electric guitars, bass guitar, drums, and second percussion. Also being co-worship leaders with the choir, the band’s goal is that their music is first glorifying to God, and also uplifting to the congregation enabling them to worship. The band enjoys leading worship for events outside of Central as well (camps, revivals, outreach events, conferences, etc.). For booking contact Pastor Allen via email. Those interested in being a part are required to fill out a music ministry interest form as well as have an informal audition with the worship pastor.

Praise Teams

At Central there are several praise teams that serve on a rotational basis. The team leads vocally with the worship pastor each Sunday morning. These individuals are selected from the Celebration Choir.

Joyful Noise

Joyful Noise is a small brass and woodwind ensemble that assists the praise band and provides additional music on occasion. The groups meets to practice each 2nd, 3rd, and 4th Sunday at 4:30Pm. An informal audition is required, but the group is looking to grow and welcomes all new players. Contact Pastor Allen for more information on how to get involved.

Media and Tech Ministry

The media and tech ministry are the true servants of the music ministry. Their goal is to facilitate and enhance worship without distraction. Areas of this ministry include sound tech, lighting, audio/video recording, video projection, and CD/DVD duplication. Members of this team rotate their times of service and there is always room for more servants in this ministry. Training is available for those interested in serving.

Hands of Praise Choir and Children’s Hand Bell Choir

The Hands of Praise Children’s Choir is for children in the 1st through 6th grades. Hands of Praise leads in special times of worship through motions, sign language, and artistic movement.

There are two sections of the children’s bell choir. Grades 1st through 3rd compose one group, while grades 4th through 6th compose the second. In these groups the children are taught the basics of reading music and more importantly what it means to worship through music. Both groups are open for any child that would like to come. These groups practice during Central's Worshipping Thru Music program that takes place each Wednesday night at 6:30pm.
