Auggie Mueller began his ministry in a few places it wasn’t until he served at a camp with a mentor that showed him what he was able to be in Christ. And in 2013 attended Nebraska Christian College graduating in 2017 with a youth pastoral major. During that time he was the youth pastor at Northwest Christian Church starting and revitalizing a youth ministry. Auggie Married his wife Caitlin in 2003 on June 20th.

Bruce began attending Central Church during high school being very active in the youth group. He was baptized in 1969. He and Nancy have been married for 45 years. Together they continue to actively serve Central. During the years, Bruce has been a Sunday school teacher for various ages from 5 years to adult. He has served on the Church Board for many years, as an elder during the early 1990’s, and as a trustee until the church went to the elder overseer model of leadership. Now semi-retired, he was a carpenter by trade and continues to farm his family farm. Currently, Bruce serves as a leader for our elementary Wednesday evening program, as the Worship pillar leader, and the general repairman for the church.
Bruce felt compelled to return to the eldership in 2016. He deeply cares about others and put their needs above his own. He believes the fellowship of the church is an important way of spreading God’s love.
Rich moved to Griswold in 1983 to teach and coach in the Griswold School District. Two years later, he married his wife, Sue; in the years to come, they were blessed with three children. Rich is now semi-retired, but some would say he seems busier now than ever. If he is not working with technical "stuff" at the school or the church, mowing yards, or driving school buses, you may find him working outside or watching a school game.
After serving as a deacon for many years, Rich felt God leading him to broaden his focus and serve others spiritually from an eldership position. Rich is actively involved with ROCK, our Wednesday Night kids program, works a lot with our Audio and Visual team, and co-leads a Life Group.
Fred and his wife Sandy moved to Griswold in 1965. Fred as a teacher and Sandy as a Stay at Home Mom. They have two grown children plus five grandchildren. They are now both enjoying retirement. Fred and Sandy started attending Central Church of Christ in 1993. Fred served on the board as a deacon and is now serving as an elder. Fred and Sandy are involved with the Hospitality Ministry. Fred served many years as a Bible school teacher and a Life Group leader. Fred and Sandy enjoy spending time with family and friends. Fred believes it is critical to have a relationship and fellowship with our Lord Jesus Christ and to honor and glorify Him.
