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).
