With more than 30 years of full time ministry, Dwayne brings a wealth of experience; 15 of those years as a youth pastor in which he was instrumental in the design, creation, and growth of the largest youth facility and youth group in the Church of God in Arkansas.
Dwayne has served on the State Youth Board of Arkansas many of those 30 years and is now Chairman of the Steering Committee for the Ozark Winterfest in Branson. His style of Leadership believes that team building is the only way for growing a ministry and that is how He operates youth ministry in Arkansas. Dwayne is married to his wife Shenia and has 2 children, Candice and Aaron, and 7 grandchildren.
Girls ministry has always been at the heart of Shenia. She was a part of Girls ministry as a teen and has carried it with her into the churches that the Culps have pastored.
Shenia believes the Biblical example of the older must train the younger is what girls ministry is all about. Arkansas has a yearly girls weekend that has grown every year since Shenia has been director, bringing in nationally known speakers along with a program that has everyone asking, “What are we going to do next year?”, at the end of each event.
Shenia is a educator (with a masters in administration), teacher, author, speaker, but her passion is ministry and being a mother of 2 children, Aaron and Candice, and Mamaw to 7 grandchildren.

Arkansas is a beautiful place. Called “The Natural State,” Arkansas offers a wide variety of the splendors of nature, rising from the lowlands of the Delta to the soaring heights of the Ozarks. Into this grand gala of God’s creation the Church of God arose. Predating the existence of a local congregation, the Church of God Evangel began receiving letters from Pentecostal saints in the state testifying of their enjoyment of the periodical. Finally, in 1916 with the organization of a local church in Poplar Grove, Arkansas, the Church of God established a beachhead in the Natural State.
In the ensuing century the Church of God expanded from corner to corner of Arkansas. Today, the Church of God can be found in larger cities such as Little Rock and the surrounding metropolitan areas as well as in many smaller towns and hamlets. Yes, even in distant farming areas the Church of God can be found, giving a living witness to a Risen Christ and the power of Pentecost.
Our mission is far from complete. Thousands await the impact of a powerful message of deliverance and freedom found in Christ. The Church of God in Arkansas is accepting the mandate of our Lord to carry this message to every living soul in the Natural State and expand the borders of His Kingdom!
Building community and providing opportunities for worship, discipleship and training are important to us in the Arkansas Church of God. This portion of our website is dedicated to listing upcoming events with downloadable advertisements for your convenience. Pastors, other ministers and laity may use these communication modes to promote various activities in our region.
