Our Story

The Christ Central story began in August of 1992. Prayer meetings were held in the basement of a church in downtown Columbia for 96 weeks. Then, in June of 1994, a man came asking for food. The next day five more came, and the numbers continued to grow.

Christ Central has continued to grow and expand its services to include: hot meals, food distribution, clothing distribution, shower and laundry facilities for the homeless, job placement assistance, family shelters, men's shelters, women and children's shelters, children's ministries, domestic violence assistance, job training, continuing education, and higher education.

Today, Christ Central Ministries consists of over 42 Mission Stations, Christ Central Institute, and Christ Central Kids Kamps.

Founded in 1999, the Aiken Christ Central is meeting the needs of the poor and disadvantaged in our community by first providing basic needs, such as food, clothing, and prayer. The Mission then assists individuals in improving their lives and the lives of their families by providing teaching and training in areas needed to secure and retain employment, stabilize their family and develop Christian character.

The Mission provides food and clothing by serving food boxes, and allowing the selection of clothing to meet needs. All these ministries are provided free of charge.

If you would like to donate to Christ Central Aiken, or volunteer your time, contact them today to find out their latest needs.
