Central Christian Church
(Disciples of Christ)
Jared Reno is our senior pastor. He is a native of Petoskey, Michigan. In 2009 he moved to Knoxville, TN to attend Johnson University. Between his junior and senior year he was the ministry intern at Central. In May 2013 he graduated from Johnson University with a degree in preaching and youth ministry. He served the church for a year before tying the knot with Kayla Reno back in May of 2014.
Both he and Kayla have a passion for youth and together they lead our Sunday night youth groups.
