For over a century, Union Baptist Church has stood as a testimony to the grace of God and the commitment of its people.
Reverend Kenneth Ray Hammond was installed as pastor of Union Baptist Church in Durham, North Carolina in January 1992 after accepting the call in August 1991. Pastor Hammond is many things to many people. More specifically, he is a shepherd to his church family, a husband to his wife, a father to his children, a leader in his community and a scholar to academia. With over thirty years of pastoral ministry, Pastor Hammond remains faithful to serving God which is evident in through his unique and energetic preaching style which often consists of "Divine Emails" and "Momentary Detours."
