Central Baptist Church is an awesome church family
who holds fast to the teachings of Jesus Christ, our Lord and Saviour.
We strive to worship, grow and serve.
We are dedicated to serving others in Jesus' Name
through our summer Central Soccer Ministry, Vacation Bible School,
Mom2Mom gatherings, Community Outreach Dinners,
Seniors' MAJORS 55+, Youth Growth Groups,
Family Nights, and Small Group Bible Studies.
At Central, we seek to honour Christ in our worship,
encourage one another in our daily lives,
train believers in God’s Word,
and reach out to a hurting world.
Presently, Central's Pastors are Pastor Alan Rietberg & Pastor Jeremy Heikkinen.
Mr. Lars Janssen is our Intern who leads the Prayer Meeting and Bible Study on Wednesdays at 2pm.
Rev. Bob Snell brings the Sunday Evening message at 6pm.
Pastor Alan and his wife, Helen were married in 1974 and have two adult sons, Josh and Jon, and are blessed with 4 grandchildren. Pastor Alan graduated from Radio Broadcasting and Central Baptist Seminary in Toronto. After returning from a missions trip with Sudan Interior Mission, Pastor Alan served as Youth Pastor at Temple Baptist Church in Cambridge, Senior Pastor at Shenstone Baptist Church in Brantford and now is a vital part of our Pastoral Team at Central Baptist Church Brantford. Pastor Alan and Helen minister to the seniors through MAJORS, an opportunity for seniors to come and socialize, to hear a speaker and enjoy a catered luncheon together. Pastor Alan visits and prays with the sick in hospital and the shut-ins in their homes and seniors residences. Pastor Alan is also a great communicator of all the events and activities around Central. At heart, Pastor Alan is an evangelist who dedicates his life to sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ.
Pastor Jeremy and his wife, Jessi, were married in 2009 and are blessed by God with three children, Emmalee, Luke and Oliver. Pastor Jeremy earned a B.A. in Biblical Studies having attended the Word of Life Bible Institute in Schroon Lake NY, Jerusalem University in Israel, and Cairn University in Philadelphia. In addition, Pastor Jeremy is a certified Biblical Counselor with the Association of Biblical Counselors. He is currently pursuing a Master's Degree in Biblical Counseling through Faith Seminary in Indiana. Central is richly blessed to have Pastor Jeremy and his wife, Jessi, ministering among us in counseling, and serving our children, youth, and young families towards a life based on scripture. You will find them both actively involved in Youth Growth Groups, Friday Night Hang Time, and at THE HIVE. Pastor Jeremy also loves riding motorcycles, playing music, working out, coaching basketball, or having a good cup of coffee! Feel free to join him for a ride or cup of Starbucks.
