Biographical history

The presbytery officers were introduced between 1969 and 1973, with the aim of dividing up the work of the two Superintendents of Home Missions in the Conference, and of improving communication between the Conference and the presbyteries. They were conceived of as a resource for the presbytery, providing coordination, consultation and counselling for all levels of the church within the presbytery, as well as serving ecumenical functions at the local level. George Affleck was appointed Comox-Nanaimo-Victoria Presbytery Officer in 1973, and served in that capacity until 1976, succeeded by Les Clark, who held the office until 1980.
