About the Central-West Region

The Central-West region serves the area in and around the Roanoke Valley and Greater Lynchburg.

Central-West is home to around three quarters of a million people, many of whom live in a handful of more densely populated areas surrounded by the Virginia mountains and rolling foothills. The SBC of Virginia has placed missionaries strategically in these population centers, but also maintains a presence and a heart for communities tucked away in more secluded areas.


  • Don Matthews and Shawn Ames are the regional missionaries for the Central-West Region.
