We welcome Pastor Brenda Clark as our new minister. Pastor Brenda will be serving for a two year period as a designated pastor.

As a designated pastor, she will be focused on taking care of current members or our church and will be working with us on church growth and revitalization.

Pastor Brenda received her undergraduate degree in Business Administration from Western Michigan University and has experience in the banking industry. She earned her Master of Divinity degree from Western Theological Seminary and is an ordained minister in the United Church of Christ.

She has served as a Hospice Chaplain. She has served several churches mostly as a settled pastor and has also served as a designated pastor.

Pastor Brenda has done extensive reading on church revitalization and has practical experience with involving the church in the local community, most recently in Bellefonte, PA where she served as the full time pastor of St. John’s UCC.

Pastor Brenda and her husband Mike are residing in the parsonage next to the church. We believe that Pastor Brenda and her husband Mike will add their own version of Christian Hope to Grace UCC.
