The UCC’s new General Minister and President, the Rev. Geoffrey A. Black, recently sat down for a video interview with UCNews. In this first excerpt of a continuing series, he describes his spiritual journey and ministry experience along with his hopes and dreams for the UCC during his time as its leader.
“I hope we have a journey that is memorable, because we’ve all been engaged in moving the church forward,” Black said. “I’m certainly aware that I don’t have everything that it takes – that we are really dependent upon the Holy Spirit. I’m also aware that God has gifted us corporately with what we need to get the United Church of Christ to a different place that is consonant with our times and the needs of the people.”
