Who We Are
Pacific Mountain Region supports the congregations and ministries of The United Church of Canada in BC, Whitehorse and Banff in a variety of ways.
We focus on providing services that assist church personnel and maintaining good relationships between congregations and personnel. We also provide staff, finances, advice, advocacy, and program resources to presbyteries and congregations to enhance their work.
Pacific Mountain Region presently has 21 staff people, twelve dispersed throughout BC, nine at the central Burnaby office, and one at the Conference archives. Several contractors also provide important services.
Pacific Mountain Region is one of 16 Regional Councils of The United Church of Canada spread across the country. It serves over 200 congregations and communities of faith, and numerous other ministries including camps, social service agencies, youth and young adult work, leadership development, new ministry initiatives, property development, affordable housing and care facilities, chaplaincies and educational centres.
Pacific Mountain Region also supports the work of General Council.
