Marriage Ministry


Dr. Ray Holdren is our Pastoral Counselor and leads our Marriage Ministry team.  He meets with engaged couples before marriage in preparation for their marriage.  He counsels with individuals, couples, married couples and families in the church and the community.  He may also be reached for private individual, marriage, couple, or family appointments at the church (859-233-1551, ext. 109).


Dr. Ray Holdren presides over most of the wedding services at Central, though any of the ministerial staff would be happy to talk with you about a service. Central has an extensive wedding policy that is available as a brochure we would be happy to send to you upon request.
