Administrative history

In 1969 the Board of Home Missions appointed John Cashore to the position of Native Affairs Consultant in B.C. Conference, to coordinate the work of the Native Indian Committee of the Conference Home Missions Committee, and facilitate communication between the Native Indian Committee and the Board in Toronto. (Later the Consultant was responsible for communication between the Committee and the Division of Mission in Canada.) When Cashore's term expired in 1972, the new Native Affairs Consultant was hired in joint sponsorship with the local dioceses of the Anglican and Roman Catholic Churches.
