First United Methodist Church of Tuscaloosa, Alabama, to Appoint First Ever Black Pastor

A church in Tuscaloosa is making history. On Sunday the First United Methodist church will appoint its first ever African American senior pastor.

Senior pastor Clinton Hubbard, Jr. says he is ready to lead his new congregation.

“Let’s trust God and let’s be excited and let’s work together to spread the gospel message. I am excited about it and a little nervous, the reality about it that it is history. But we also want to realize that the greater challenge is to make disciples for Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world,” Hubbard said.

Pastor Hubbard has served as clergy in the United Methodist Church for almost 37 years, most recently as the Superintendent of the Cheaha District in east Alabama.
