Our Pastor:

My name is Calvin Griffin. I have been the minister of Singleton UMC since January, 2010. Singleton UMC is my second appointment. I started in ministry as a United Methodist minister in June, 2002 and was ordained as an Elder in 2011. I served Collierstown UMC and Mount Horeb UMC as my first appointment. I received a B.S. in Business Administration from North Carolina Wesleyan College in 1989 and worked in retail management for thirteen years. While serving my first appointment I received my Masters of Divinity in 2007. Donna and I married in 1991 and we have three children; Megan, Margaret and Malinda "the Twins". Megan married Stanley Tomlin in 2010 and now has two children, Chandler and Tate. Margaret married Daniel Champion in 2017. Malinda married Nathan Floyd in 2019. Donna and I enjoy spending time with family. We have a passion for bicycling and traveling.
