Celebrate Christmas with the soul-stirring, multi-Grammy Award winning, gospel powerhouse Israel Houghton. The Music and Creative Arts Ministries of Central Baptist Church, directed by nationally recognized Reverend Christopher J. Watkins, present their annual Christmas Concert.

“The holiday season is known for gatherings with family and friends, caloric overload, excessive consumerism, and constant reminders of how individuals are supposed to feel happy and grateful,” says Central’s senior pastor, Reverend Anthony L. Riley. “These seasonal stressors and cold weather can bring about everything but lasting peace and joy for people. Our goal with this year’s concert is to put faith and authentic worship at the forefront of our minds and offer a time of refuge and inspiration to St. Louisans with an evening of Christ-centered music and creative arts.”
