Leadership

Meet the Team

Clifton Bullock

Senior Pastor, Teaching/Vision

Pastor Clifton and his wife, Jane, joined UBC staff in October 2015 after serving for six years with the Hispanic community in Texas. Prior to that they were church planting missionaries in the country of Honduras for 14 years. The Bullocks have three adult children; Kristen, Josiah, and Micah. All three are assisting in various church and para-church ministries. 

Johnny Aseltine

Associate Intern

Johnny grew up in a Christian home. At the age of four, Johnny came to faith in Jesus Christ at his kitchen table, led there by the witness of his mom. Influenced heavily as a teenager by a youth leader, it was clear God was calling to Johnny through his Word and the mentorship of his friend. Johnny spent several years at Word of Life Bible Institute as a student and continued on staff there until he and Kristi felt a calling to look for other opportunities. Upon leaving that ministry, Johnny obtained a BS in Biblical Studies from Tennessee Temple University. He served for 5 years at Streamside Camp and Conference Center as the head of their Bible department and gained a Masters of Ministry degree from Baptist Bible Seminary during this time. It was while at Baptist Bible Seminary that Johnny received his call into pastoral ministry. After spending 7 years at Central Community Church, God made it clear he was calling Johnny to serve elsewhere. Johnny came on staff with Union Baptist Church in September 2020. Johnny and Kristi were married in 2001 and have five children; Tori, Katie, Johnny, Abi, and Ellie.
