About Our Ministers

Central Christian Church is between installed ministers. Stephen Underwood relocated to another state in January of 2024 and Karen and Bob Frank-Plumlee took the interim ministry position on February 1, 2024. Both Bob and Karen are retired Disciples of Christ clergy with a thirty year history of membership in this congregation. It is anticipated that their interim ministry period will only be a few months before a new minister will be called to the church. Meanwhile, Karen can be reached on her cell at 406-788-0851 and Bob at 406-788-0007. And their church office hours are 9am to 4pm on Thursdays and Fridays.

Karen and Bob as our co-interim ministers bring a rich background of experience to the church. Both have served in ministry in Oklahoma, Kansas, Georgia, and Montana. In retirement they spend most of their time living in the mountains near Lincoln. Their favorite avocation has been flying their Cessna 172 around America over the years. And recently, they have turned their attention to buying and learning to fly a gyrocopter. They have six children and a number of grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

They wholeheartedly affirm the congregation’s position of being open, inclusive, and welcoming of all people.  And they look forward to seeing you in church.
