Today, we welcome Interim Pastor, Cliff Houston to the United Church of Granville. Pastor Cliff will lead the congregation through an interim period as we discern and prepare ourselves for a search for a new Pastor.
Cliff Houston was born in a small town in Southern Georgia. He received his BA from the University of Georgia with a major in communications, Master of Divinity from Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary/Wake Forest, NC (1984) and his Doctor of Ministry from Candler School of Theology in Atlanta, GA (1999). He completed 95 contact hours to complete a program on transitional ministry with the Interim Ministry Network in Baltimore, MD in 2013.
He and his wife Karen moved to the Rochester, NY area in 1995. He has extensive experience as a pastor leading congregations in GA, England and Pittsford, NY and most recently as the Interim Minister at the First Baptist Church in Rochester, NY (2013-2015).

Faith that Seeks We are a spiritual community where diversity is celebrated, where questioning is encouraged, and where all are invited to bring their particular gifts and histories to our “open table” as we experience God’s love and grace together.
Hope that Transforms Empowered by spiritual practice and worship, we’re a congregation that has grown and changed over the years. Committed to the vision of “peace in oneself, peace in the world,” we’re keeping our eyes and ears open, convinced that God is still speaking today.
Love that Works We invest our resources and energy to build a local and global community that supports right relationships, justice, peace, and a healthy environment for all living things.
