The Rev. Meghan Engstran came to Central Baptist in 2017 as ministry intern where she served in this role for a year. Even though she pursued other ministry experiences she found her home in the congregation, joining the church in 2018. Meghan rejoined the ministry staff in 2020 as interim family and youth minister. Meghan enjoys living in Shockoe Bottom where she can explore the canal pathways and eat at local restaurants on the same day. Meghan believes the Church is meant to foster intentional exploration of faith that encourages members to demonstrate the love and acceptance of God to the world.
