College Central

The Beginning…


College Central began in Spring 2012 under the leadership of the Reverend Dr. Nathan Scovens Pastor of Galilee Missionary Baptist Church. Upon arriving to Winston-Salem, Pastor Scoven’s envisioned a powerful ministry that would impact the lives of college students in the city of Winston Salem and the Triad area. Thus, he presented his charge to a receptive staff and the rest goes down in HISTORY!!!!!! College Central ministry is led by coordinator Yolonda Childs a member of GMBC. Yolonda’s goal is to continue to impact the lives of young adults attending two of the largest institutions in Winston Salem, Wake Forest University and Winston-Salem State University, as well as Forsyth Technical Community College and Salem College. Currently there are approximately 30-50 college students in attendance on Sunday mornings for an unbelievable worship and fellowship experience!
