Central’s Urban Mission Camp

Over the last 10 Years, Central has become ground zero for urban mission work in Mobile, Alabama. We have sought to live out our Vision: Love God, Love Neighbor, Live like Jesus.

If you attend a church service at Central, you will find that it is different from most other churches. If you look out at the faces, you will see many different cultures represented. We are walking the path toward understanding and loving each other. We invite you to join us on this journey.

We work closely with L’Arche, an international community of mentally challenged individuals and the people who care for them living together as equals.

We share the mission of Family Promise, a group which helps families who are having housing difficulties. Their offices are in our church and we also host families in our facility.

We are a member of the Community Gardens of Mobile. We have our own garden here at the church, where we also offer cooking classes to teach people to use fresh vegetables in their diets.

We host the largest food pantry in Mobile. People who are having difficulty getting nutritious food are invited to come each Tuesday for help.

There are on site computer classes and computers available for use. Church members help people with resumes and typing skills.

We run Grace’s Closet. This is a place where people can come get gently used clothes free of charge and be waited on with respect and kindness.

Central is truly a church with a mission. We are growing in love every day and learning to live like Jesus.



During a typical week, participants will work with the following groups:


Evening Activities

We encourage groups to enjoy recreation and fun in the evenings.  When you fill out your registration, please note which of these activities you might like to do on a particular night and we will do our best to make arrangements.


Your Home for the Week

Central is located in the heart of Mobile, at the crossroads of Downtown and Midtown. We have renovated the 3rd Floor to host large groups. We have regular beds for 32 people, showers, and a large gathering room.
