Transforming families to live and love like Jesus

Meet the staff.

Matt Dumas

Senior Pastor
He is a good ol’ boy from Texas with a warm, down to earth personality, and a strong conviction that good leaders lead by example.

Matt believes in renewing hearts and minds through Biblical teaching. His commitment to the Bible is demonstrated through his Word-centered sermons and his relentless pursuit of personally growing in the knowledge of his Savior.

After graduating from Dallas Theological Seminary with a Master of Theology Degree, Matt and his beautiful wife Wendy moved with their three sons to the Antelope Valley. Even with a busy schedule he continues to make sure that the people around him are loved and supported, especially his family.

His love for God and others is on constant display by the ways that he humbly serves those under his care.

Alisa Anderson

Women's Director/Accounting
Alisa is a valued member of our team at Central! She graduated from UCLA and got her CPA license working at Deloitte and Touché. She went on to Eternity Bible College with the goal of being fluent in spreading the gospel message. She wears the hats of both Women’s Director and Accountant on our staff.

We count on Alisa to speak truth and logic into a myriad of situations throughout the week. She has a passion for God’s Word and building confidence in women that they truly can understand and apply all of scripture. She makes the Bible accessible to multiple levels and helps you reach further and dig deeper-whether you are a new believer or a seasoned theologian. She is a prayer warrior and helps others remember the power of prayer in all circumstances.

Alisa loves seeing her two sons when they come home to visit, taking RV trips with her husband Matt, walking and chatting with friends, Dodger baseball and crunching numbers at warp speed. We can’t imagine not having Alisa on the team!

He brings a practical approach to teaching and equipping the church to live and love like Jesus.

He enjoys reading works by C.S. Lewis, J.R.R. Tolkien, Charles Spurgeon, and John Bunyan, as well as, watching all things soccer. Favorite Bible verse: Proverbs 27:6

Bryan Ingram

Worship Pastor
Bryan and his amazing wife, TJ, hail from the sandy beaches of Florida. They are both passionate followers of Jesus who love to serve Him together. Bryan’s worship style is authentic and heart-felt. The stage he leads from is not the pinnacle of a concert, but an alter unto the Lord.

The only thing Bryan loves more than music is his dog, and his white shoes. Ok, not really, but he does talk about them a lot. Our church is grateful to have such a relatable and down to earth worship leader. When he’s not on the stage he’s busy meeting with people, training musicians, and teaching others what it means to live and love like Jesus.


Mike Harris


Mike is the chairman of the Elders, and has been part of the Central family since 1991. He’s always ready to make you laugh and likes to bend the rules ever so slightly, like when he described himself in three words “not a morning person”. Mike retired from aerospace and loves to workout and be a grandpa. He is diligent in prayer, faithful to God, and a blessing to Central. Favorite Bible Verse: 1 Corinthians 10:13 

Matt Dumas

Senior Pastor/Elder

Matt has been with the Central family since 2013. He fit right in as our senior pastor and is a great leader. Matt loves Tex-mex fajitas, and watching movies, but nothing compares to his beloved Baylor Bears. He is intentional and disciplined in his study of God’s Word and is committed to following the Holy Spirit. We are thankful for his guidance and leadership. Favorite Bible Verse: Genesis 3:15 

Joe Gooden


Joe and his family have been a part of Central since 1995. He is recently retired from a career in law enforcement, and loves anything from the Italian food group. He spends much of his time serving the homeless community, and is looking forward to seeing the impact the upcoming generation is going to have for Jesus. Joe’s servant heart is evident to all who know him. Favorite Bible Verse: Deuteronomy 15:11

Dave Hannon


Dave has been a member of the Central family since Since 2007.  He currently works in Civil Service after retiring from the Marines.  He loves serving with his wife in our Marriage Ministry and is grateful for the opportunity to equip couples to live and love like Jesus.
Favorite Bible Verse: Romans 12:12.

Dave Horner


Bio coming soon!

Allen Parker


Since 1996 Allen and his family have called Central home. When asked to describe himself in three words he said “A blessed man”. Did we mention he’s an engineer and that he loves spaghetti? Allen strives to lead his family and the church well. He loves studying scripture and being used to further God’s Kingdom through Central. We are so thankful to have Allen on our Elder Board. Favorite Bible Verse: Proverbs 3:5
