Transitional Minister Position

Union University Church in Alfred, NY, is a non-denominational, all-inclusive church located in Western NY, about 70 miles southeast of Buffalo, NY.  We are seeking a transitional minister to commit to 18-24 months following the long service (38 years) of our pastor.  Presently, we have 45-50 families that pledge on a regular basis with an average attendance of 60-65 weekly, in person or on ZOOM from near and far.  Our members are involved in community service, church boards, and committees, to try to be God’s hands, feet and comfort in a very needy world. 

We need a person who can continue our good work that has been encouraged, led, and lived by our retiring minister.  We want to be guided by a transitional minister as we identify our hopes and goals for the future of our church.  To learn more about our church, visit our website at
