Indigenous Ministry

Indigenous Ministry

The Indigenous Ministry of the Pacific Mountain Regional Council promotes and initiates traditional ancestral principles to be an integral part of living faith, and trust in God and the Gospel of Christ in all relationships including conflict resolution, rites of passage, purification, and affimation.

Calls to the Church

The PMRC Indigenous Ministries hopes for all Indigenous and Non-Indigenous United Church people to read and practice the Calls to the Church and build meaningful relationship with Indigenous-church communities in the Pacific Mountain Regional Council.

“’The Calls to the Church’ emerged from a process of discernment by the Indigenous church.

The ‘Calls to the Church’ document articulates the Indigenous Church’s vision for the ongoing development of Indigenous Peoples’ mission and ministry and communities of faith within The United Church of Canada. It outlines pathways for the whole church to continue to walk in the Spirit of Christ toward justice, healing, and reconciliation.”
