Central's Shepherd Leaders

Central's Shepherd Leaders

Jesus Christ is the foundation of His church (I Cor. 3:11) and the Central congregation strives to be followers of Christ as the Chief Shepherd. (I Pet. 5:4)

Our local servant-leaders are godly men who are dedicated to helping each one of us to be more like Jesus each day.

Our Preachers 

Jody Broyles  began working with Central in December of 2007. He is a careful student of the  Word and thoroughly enjoys teaching  Bible classes  and preaching.  He graduated from Southern Christian University with a degree in  Biblical Studies.  He and his wife, Melisa, have made numerous trips to Barbados to do mission work and vacation Bible school for the children.  They have three adult sons and seven grandchildren.  

Colin Williamson moved to Ocala in 1968 and has worked with the congregation ever since. After 40 years of sterling service, Colin retired in January of 2008. He and Betty continue to be a part of the work at Central.  His invaluable experience and presence serve as a strong foundation upon which we continue to build.

Wayne Yancey is retired from the Marion County School Board as a high school teacher and baseball coach. Wayne and Trudy have ten adult children and an ever-growing number of grandchildren!  He preaches periodically and also  serves as one of our overseers.


Jordan Johnson is an English and History teacher in the Marion County School System. He grew up studying and worshiping with the Central family. Jordan assists in organizing spiritual offerings for Central's youth and preaches on occasion. He and his wife, Lynde, enjoy life together with their daughter Juliana. Jordan wants to build strong relationships with others and help equip young people for a life of discipleship.
