Charles Whiston, Minister Emeritus


Rev. Charles H. Whiston came to South Church in 1991 having previously served the Congregational Church in Gray, Maine for twelve years.  He attended Andover Newton Theological School in Newton Centre MA after graduating from Beloit College in Wisconsin.   Rev. Charles was ordained in his home church located in Webster Groves MO.  Over the years, he has served as President of the Maine Council of Churches, Moderator of the Maine Conference United Church of Christ, led hiking trips in the NH White Mountains and more recently for the past ten plus years - mission trips to the Gulf Coast following Hurricane Katrina.  

As of September 30, 2018, Charles has retired from the ministry of South Congregational Church.  A wonderful celebration was held on that day to share our love and send him forward in retirement.  Charles will move to the south to be closer to his children and will continue to faithfully watch and cheer for the Boston Red Sox.
