Video Message for 09.23.12 :: The quickest way a team can turn their season around is to stack the roster with a superstar. When a superstar joins a team, it can lift not only the stats and the wins, it also lifts the team's spirit. Where once there was only despair, now they have hope. It's a Gamechanger. This week we look at the life of Peter, one of the first to ever declare that Jesus was his Savior. Just as a team gets new life from a superstar, Peter received a brand new life and a brand new hope when he finally saw Jesus for who he really is.
Video Message for 09.16.12 :: Ask any professional athlete what they are most afraid of and most of the time you will hear the same answer: injuries. Getting hurt is a part of the game, but nobody wants to be on the disabled list. Some injuries can end a career, others reduce performance, but all of them leave their mark. Playing through the pain is part of life on the field as well as off. We all walk through life with deep injuries that keep us from living our best. This week you will learn how the biblical character Jacob played through the pain and how God's blessing was a Gamechanger in his life.
Video Message for 09.09.12 :: Some teams get stuck in a rut, trying the same old plays over and over again with average to poor results. What they need is a new game plan, something to breath new life and new success into their efforts. The same can be true of our lives. We get stuck in a routine. The daily grind takes so much out of us we stop dreaming of what could be and just settle for what is. God wants to give us a new game plan and it can be a Gamechanger in our lives.
Video Message for 09.02.12 :: People say all the time, "It's nothing personal." This often comes right after a stinging criticism! But there are some things in life that are personal, or at least they should be. These personal things are often the most important things in life. In this message you will find steps on how to prioritize life's most important relationships. You will be able to apply these steps as you move through the Fall and into a new year!

Video Message for 07.15.12 :: In this message, Mike Foster shares with us how God has invited us to a life of freedom, not fear. He has a great plan for our lives. He only asks that we live with courage and live dangerously with him. But that means we have to surrender our people pleasing ways and learn to let go of our need to control. We do this by looking at how Ruth took a small risk and made history.
Video Message for 07.08.12 :: Central is excited to welcome Mike Meeks, Pastor of Eastlake Church in Chula Vista, California. EastLake Church is all about, all because of, and all for, Jesus.

Video Message for 07.01.12 :: In spite of Solomon's frustration, he still recognized the importance of friendship and community. This message looks at the benefits of community. We'll celebrate where we've been and look forward to the future with vision and anticipation.
Video Message for 06.24.12 :: Sometimes it seems like the world has gone crazy. We see injustice everywhere. Apart from God, things are in a desperate state of affairs. But, through faith, we learn of a God who is just and calls us to defend the defenseless. In this message, we look at how we can move beyond cynicism and paralysis and step out, making our own large or small contribution on behalf of others.
Video Message for 06.17.12 :: We often fight desperately against the limitations of time. We schedule it, manipulate it, and try to squeeze more out of it. We deny it, run from it, and seek to beat it. But time is a gift. Solomon reminds us there is a "time for everything." Apart from God this can seem very discouraging, but through faith we learn to embrace our limitations and the seasons as God brings them. We learn to stop fighting time and start getting the most from the season in which we find ourselves. In this message, we explore many of the seasons Solomon describes in chapter 3 and provide practical encouragement for thriving in them.
