In fall 1968, 12 families from the Cuba Mennonite Church had the vision to start a church. The first service on 19 January 1969 was held in the Methodist Church in Woodburn (near Fort Wayne). A building was constructed on Schwartz Road in May 1970. Already at that time the congregation had 95 members; in 1999 there were 339 members.

Ministers have included Henry P. Dyck, Wayne R. Goldsmith, Don Delagrange, Maury Brenneman and Brian Gerig. In June 2002 Central Mennonite withdrew from the Indiana-Michigan Mennonite Conference and Mennonite Church USA over concerns about issues in the conference.

The congregation became an independent, non-denominational congregation under the name Central Ministries. The congregation also established Central Christian School with classes for up to Grade 8. In 2011 there were about 100 students. In 2011 the senior ministers were Jeremy Helmuth and Don Delagrange.
