Administrative history

The position of Chaplain to United Church students on the UBC campus was the first university chaplaincy position in The United Church of Canada. BC Conference appointed the Rev. M. John V. Shaver to the position in 1959. The Chaplain was originally responsible to the Conference via its Chaplaincy Committee. Since the beginning, the position has had a close relationship or partnership with the University Hill United Church congregation. The title "Campus Minister" came to replace "Chaplain" as the preferred term for a position appointed by the Church, rather than the University.
