MINISTER CLIFFTON G. SPELLER was born on September 20, 1963. He is the youngest of three children born to the late
Shirley Speller. Cliffton was educated in the Baltimore City school system and received his G.E.D. in 1984. His grandmother
and his Pastor were instrumental in Cliffton's spiritual journey. After years of fighting his addiction to drugs and alcohol,
Cliffton surrendered, and has been clean and sober for over 20 years.
Cliffton joined the Unity Fellowship Church Movement in 1997 at Inner Light Unity Fellowship Church in Washington, DC.
There, he served as a Youth Leader and faithful congregant. In December of 2000, he joined the church building team under
Pastor Harris Thomas and transferred his membership to Unity Fellowship Church of Baltimore, where he worked in many
capacities, including Pastor's Aide, the Voices of Life Choir, the SHARE and CARE Ministries, and the Audio-Visual Ministry.
He began his liturgical training as a Deacon Candidate in 2002, was ordained as a Deacon in October of 2006, and was
ordained as a Minister in October of 2010.
Since serving in Baltimore, Minister Speller was also instrumental in bringing Narcotics Anonymous meetings to UFCB. He
has taken his biblical and liturgical training under the guidance of Pastor Harris Thomas and the Rev. Jerri Lee Harrison (now of UFC NewArk).
