Welcome, from the Pacific Mountain Regional Council!
We are both a geographical region covering most of BC and Yukon, and a council of membership within The United Church of Canada. Through staffing, finance, advice, advocacy and resources, the PMRC supports Indigenous and Non-Indigenous communities of faith and ministries in making a difference in the world. Enjoy using this website to get to know more about our region!
Our mission and vision is to
- Support the health of United Church communities of faith and ministries in our region.
- Nurture effective leadership.
- Grow faithful public witness as United Church people.
We are an Affirming Regional Council - we celebrated our confirmed status at our June 2022 General Meeting with an amazing street party, in Prince George! Read our region's Affirming Ministry Regional Council Statement here, and learn more about Affirming Communities of Faith in the region too.
Faithful Climate Conversations is a free, online series offered by the PMRC Justice Network, and drawing from the multi-denominational, Canada-wide “For the Love of Creation” discussion resources. It will run in two series during early 2023.
A key period of women’s work, struggle, and leadership in the United Church, coincided with the popularization of feminism in the wider culture, and is now part of history. There was a coordinated effort across The UCC identify and preserve the personal papers and stories of some of the women who were part the profound change. The PMRC Archives undertook 30 interviews between 2011 and 2022.
