Paragould Campus

God called us to launch another campus of Central Baptist Church, so on August 12, 2018 we launched our first service at 11am in the Performing Arts Center at Greene County Tech High School and currently are offering both 9:30 and 11am services at GCT.

Dr. Blake Ligon is the Campus Teaching Pastor and has served on staff at Central, in various leadership roles, since 2011. 

Blake grew up close to Marvell, AR and went to Ouachita Baptist University to play football, where he received his bachelor’s degree in Christian Ministries. It was at OBU that Blake met Joy, from Benton, AR and they married in 2008. Blake received his master’s degree from Mid-America Baptist Theological Seminary and is currently pursuing a doctorate degree from Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. Blake has served in several pastoral leadership positions at Central since 2011. Blake and Joy have two children, Sawyer (4) and Grey (2).

Our mission is to reach people the church has not yet reached and lead them into a growing relationship with Jesus Christ.

With that said, 44% of the people living in Greene county have no church affiliation, according to the most recent census info. We’d like to see the Gospel change that. 

We'd love for you to join us for one of our Sunday services, everyone is welcome! 



9:30AM and 11AM
