Preaching Minister

Alan Taylor

Alan and his wife Nora moved to Bakersfield and began working with Central Church in April 2014. They both grew up in the Seattle area (yes, they’re Seahawks' fans), but are excited to be working and raising their kids, Ben and Emma, in Bakersfield.


Prior to his work at Central, Alan has served as a preacher in Phoenix, Arizona, and he has also worked in the behavioral health field in the Seattle area.


Alan and Nora have a passion to announce and live out the good news of the Kingdom of God in Bakersfield and specifically in the community surrounding Central Church. Whether through sermons on Sunday morning, kids program on Wednesday night, or the relationships formed every day in between, Alan is committed to being a part of a community that reflects the justice, mercy, humility, and healing of God’s presence.
