Clyde Ewbank
Director of Operations

What do you do?

I think that a more accurate description is that operations direct me! Working along side staff and volunteers to accomplish the behind the scenes work that help our ministries function. Many different hats keep it interesting: Facility maintenance, Media, administrative tasks to name a few.

What do you love about your job?

Knowing that what I do is a part of the ministries here at UCC in a supporting role.  Colossians 3:23 “Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men.”

A little about your background?

Grew up here in Upland and graduated from Eastbrook.  A co-worker shared Christ with me a year out of high school.  My first career was in the trucking industry for nearly 25 years in parts and service management.  My wife (Sharon) and I were heavily involved in our church.  That led to being a volunteer youth leader.  When we started attending UCC we became involved as youth volunteers.  God then opened the door for me to serve as Youth Pastor from 2001-08.

Sharon and I have been married for over 40 years, we have two grown children who are both married, and each have two children of their own. Also, the addition of foster grandchildren, who keep us active.

Why have we ended up at UCC?

When our children were close to their teens, we wanted them to go to church with some of the same students they went to school with.

Things to do:

Grandkids!  Disc golf, walking, biking
