A Word from Us…

Celebrating Staff Anniversaries


April is a special month at UBC as we acknowledge as a church family the wonderful contributions of these two dedicated staff members: 

 Sue Walton (32 years)                  

Barbara Taylor Moore (29 years)

We thank Barbara and Sue for their many years of loyal and cheerful service.  We are truly grateful for the special talents and loving spirit that each brings to the life and work of University Baptist Church!


Leadership Transition Update

UBC LTT logoAt the Called Church Conference on March 6, the church approved the LTT and Church Council’s recommendation to hire an Interim Minister and to begin forming the Senior Minister Search Committee.  Since then, the LTT has been working diligently with our denominational associations and ministry connections, including Baptist General Association of Virginia, Cooperative Baptist Fellowship, and Center for Healthy Churches, to find suitable candidates for the Interim Minister position.  The LTT, with input and involvement from our ministers, staff, and the Personnel Committee, are currently evaluating these candidates.

The LTT is optimistic that we will be able to make an Interim Minister recommendation to Church Council, the Deacons, and the Personnel Committee by April 3.  With that in mind, we have asked that another Called Church Conference be planned for Wednesday, April 13, in anticipation of being able to present this recommendation to the congregation.  With church approval, it is our goal that an  Interim Minister will be hired during April.  In short, we are trying to move as   efficiently and effectively as possible!

The team recognizes that this is a crucial and important stage in the life of UBC, and we are making plans prayerfully.  As always, we welcome and invite any and all questions or comments.  Please let us know your thoughts and considerations.  We are excited about the opportunities that God is presenting to UBC!

Heartfelt Thanks


Jubilate, Barbara Moore, Anne Keith, Robby Gough, Pam Beasley, and I want to say a very special Thank You to University Baptist Church for your support of Jubilate for 43 years, and especially this year as we worked toward our tour to Memphis and St. Louis.  We desire to always be honoring Jesus through our music, and this year we hope that our music would be comfort to children and families at St. Jude Children’s Hospital.

I am so very proud of this group, their sound and their interaction with each other and with those who came to hear us sing.

I cannot thank you enough for your vision and continued support of Jubilate.  I pray that this very worthwhile ministry to college students will continue for a long time!!
