About the Central-East Region

The Central-East Region serves the area in and around Greater Richmond, portions of the Piedmont, and the Northern Neck. 

The rolling hills, farmland, woods, and urban areas of Central-East are home to more than one and a quarter million people, and include the cities along the interstate 95 corridor of Richmond, Colonial Heights and Petersburg. For many this is the natural “Fall Line” between the Piedmont’s rolling hills and the flatlands of the Coastal Plains of Tidewater.

The Central East Region is the home of our State Capitol and our SBCV state convention’s ministry office.
