Ecclesiastical Council of Rev. Richard Barham

The Southeast Conference’s Commission on Ministry invites you to the Ecclesiastical Council of Rev. Richard Barham, Senior Pastor of Spirit of the Cross UCC in Huntsville, AL.

Ecclesiastical Councils (ECs) are the last step in the process for both Members in Discernment and for Ministers transferring their credentials to the United Church of Christ from another denomination called the Privilege of Call. As part of the EC, Southeast Conference members will have the opportunity to hear about Rev. Barham’s ministry and call to the United Church of Christ.

As part of the EC, you, members of the Southeast Conference, will have the opportunity to listen to the work of the Spirit, and vote to welcome Rev. Barham into the UCC as a fully authorized ordained minister. Rev. Barham currently serves as Senior Pastor of Spirit of the Cross UCC in Huntsville, AL, a congregation that affiliated with the UCC in October 2018. This EC will be online and you can register here to attend on August 4th at 6 pm Eastern, 5 pm Central.
