Our Purpose

Central U exists to create disciples of Jesus Christ by providing strategic and formative opportunities for growth and engagement in the areas of ecclesiology (“authentic family”), theology (“around the whole gospel”), doxology (“for the glory of God”), and missiology (“the reaching of the nations”).

Certificate Track

The Certificate Track is an intensive, structured journey through the four canons of Central Baptist Church that includes the following Phases or elements under each canon:

  1. Core Texts
  2. Elective Texts
  3. Scripture Memorization
  4. Practicum

Certificate Track students will have their work graded with a Pass/Fail grade and must pass to get credit for the class. The goal of the Certificate Track is to equip students who go through this process to be deeply and strategically versed and equipped in the biblical, theological, and ecclesiological foundations of each canon. The Certificate Track lasts as long as students need to complete the requirements. We would like to challenge CentralU participants to consider participating in the Certificate Track.

Audit Track

Any person can take any CentralU class with or without purchasing the material unless there are special circumstances related to the class whereby its membership would need to be limited (in such circumstances, this would be communicated in the enrollment material for the class).

We are committed to not creating closed-off classes (again, unless there is a legitimate class-specific reason to do so) and the audit option keeps that from happening.
