Christian Center was born as an answer to a prayer when a group of earnest Christians, fervently seeking God’s will, were brought together by the compelling leadership of the Holy Spirit.
Our First Service
On Sunday, August 31, 1980, at 4:00 p.m., we held our first service on the beautiful campus of Louisiana State University in Shreveport, and Christian Center became a reality!
Our Founding Pastor
Nolan Logan, our founding pastor, carried a great vision in his heart. When a group of believers responded to his vision, it formed a ministry that began to fulfill its mandate in our region.
In May 1981, God provided a miracle, and the Christian Center body purchased property at our present location on Idema Street. Construction began, and we moved into our present building in the spring of 1983.
Christian Center has remained a community pillar for more than 30 years. The vision on which it was founded continues to lead the advancement of the kingdom of God in our city, region and nations of the earth.
The Pastoral Transition
In 1996, after the retirement of Pastor Logan, the ministry asked youth pastors Tim and Susan Carscadden to lead Christian Center into the next phase of its development.
Since 1996, the ministry has been on an incredible journey and has grown in its purpose and vision for the kingdom of God. The Holy Spirit thrust the ministry into a renewal movement, and the ministry began to grow into its new image in the community. Many ministries have been added, and outreach to Israel and the nations has greatly increased.
We also have become involved in the governmental arena, as we have partnered with ministries to political offices that affect the leadership of our state and country. Our call to prayer has led the ministry to pray for our leaders and believe in an awakening in the United States.
The Rise of Crowns of Life Training School
In the fall of 2006, Christian Center launched its Crowns Of Life Training School and has trained many in the region to do the work of the ministry. COLTS has grown greatly through the years, and we have been blessed to equip saints in the prophetic and school of the supernatural. We also have added an inner healing ministry with the Father’s Embrace course and have seen tremendous fruit as people are healed by the love of our Father.
Our Lifelong Mission
Christian Center has always been and will continue to be a voice in our community for the prophetic purpose of our area. We have a passion to sow God’s purposes in the earth, and we long to labor with other ministries to see the kingdom of God be done on earth as it is in heaven.
