Meet Our Church Staff
Pastor Paul wants to see revival breaking out! After serving out West for 28 years, God brought him to Central Church in 2018. Paul loves Jesus, and welcomes all to Central Church! Paul is husband to Nan and father to Jacob and Seth (both in NorCal). An avid cyclist, he is exploring the roads of Long Island (cautiously).
Christen Dekie has been lead to worship since she was a wee 7 year old dancing with the With Liturgical dance ministry at the Greater Allen Cathedral in Jamaica Queens. As a youngen, Christen and her siblings also grew up through Central’s Youth Group, having the most God filled experiences of their lives. Through all of this, Christen has been led back to Central, allowing God to use her for his glory!
