Our History
     For over one hundred years, Union Hill MIssionary Baptist Church has been the heart of the Utley, Bastrop and Elgin communities.  Union Hill was organized on the first Sunday in April, 1864 by the late Rev. Joshua Brice.  During the church history, twelve pastors and nineteen musicians have served.
     The pastors were Rev. Joshua Brice, Rev. G.G. Grun, Rev. H.W. Luckett, Rev. Sam Clark, Rev. J.A. Washington, Rev. Jones, Rev. J.A. Thomas, Rev. H.L. Price, Rev. I.W. Robinson Sr., Rev. J.D. Cleveland, and our present pastor, Rev. Aubrey Jackson.
     In 1939, under the leadership of Rev. H.L. Price, a new church building was erected with the help of the members of the church and the community.

 "And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not."  Gal. 6:9.

The Union Hill Missionary Baptist Church did reap a lavish harvest in the year of 1958 when Rev. J.D. Cleveland became our pastor.  A young and strong family man, he was determined to do the will of God and to lead the community to higher heights in Christ.  In 1958 the church was remodeled.  In 1976, an annex was added and in 1979, central heating and air condition were installed, all under the leadership of Rev. J.D. Cleveland.

Rev. Charles Hunter was ordained February, 2003 and was appointed Assistant Pastor. Rev. Aubrey Jackson was called into the ministry May 25, 2008, ordained February 12, 2009 and was appointed Assisted Pastor August, 2009. Union Hill worship services were held on first and third Sundays for many years until February, 2010 when the church elected to have services every Sunday.

Rev. J.D. Cleveland retired from Pastoring in 2010 after 52 years of faithful service. On May 8, 2010, the church called Rev. Aubrey Jackson to be the next Pastor. Rev. Jackson was installed July 3, 2010. Rev. Jackson believes that the Holy Bible is the true Word of God and that Salvation is by none other than Jesus.

For over 150 years, Union Hill Missionary Baptist Church has endured and prospered through the Word of God. Since its founding in 1864, the church has been filled with people who have been transformed by the Gospel of Jesus. As we move forward, we look back into our history and realize that this church was built upon the rock with a firm foundation. As we honor the past, celebrate the present, and preopare for the future, we will continue to trust in God because we know He will lead us to higher heights.

"Upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it."
Matthew 16:18

So built we the wall; and all the wall was joined together unto the half thereof; for the people had a mind to work.

In 1987, the Union Hill Church family realized a new building was needed. The new church was built and on March 6, 1988, Union Hill entered the new sanctuary with thankfulness and praises to God.
