I am pleased to announce that both Faith Church’s Council and the Heart of Texas Association’s Committee on Ministry have approved Philip Graves as a Member in Discernment as he pursues Licensure as a Minister of the United Church of Christ. 

Philip will be taking classes, writing papers, and practicing in various ways for ministry in the coming months. We have some obligations to him as his sponsoring congregation, the first of which is to encourage and pray for him, so please keep him in your prayers as we seek to guide and encourage him in this journey!

If you have any inkling of interest in what it means to become authorized as a minister (commissioned, licensed, or ordained) in the UCC, consider the brief documents on this UCC webpage dedicated to discernment of one’s call!
