Part of United Church of Canada Division of Ministry Personnel and Education fonds

In 1971 the Division of Ministry and Education added the term “Personnel” to its name. The term was added to reflect the need within the United Church to improve the method and quality of pastoral care for persons in ministry. Henceforth ministry personnel were managed by a number of areas within DMPE, including high level departments and committees such as the Personnel Services, Personnel Advocacy and Support, and the Pastoral Relations Committee. The advocacy of particular types of ministers was often overseen by smaller committees and areas such as Women in Ministry and Diaconal Ministry Committee.

This series contains strictly ministry personnel files. Subseries includes: 1) Individual Personnel Files, 2) Ministry Candidate Files, 1960-1980, 3) Lay Ministry Personnel, [195-]-2005, 4) Ministers Ordained from Other Denominations, 1965-1971, 5) Chaplains, 1995-2000, 6) Personnel Transfers, 1982-1983.

Studies were established on retraining and rehabilitation for ministers who were not successful in being located in congregational employment and a number of persons received assistance, retraining and rehabilitation (1972 yearbook).

The 27th General Council’s passed a resolution that the Division of Mission in Canada and the Division of Ministry Personnel and Education should provide decisive direction in the area of training for leadership in Native settlements. A joint staff group from both divisions was formed called the Task Force on Native Ministry Training. The role of the task force was to survey the situation and develop resources for Conferences to improve native ministry training. In 1980 there was a National Native Ministry Consultation, planned in part by members of this task group. The purpose of the consultation was to allow Native communities to express their concerns on ministry. In light of their concerns, DMPE formed a standing committee to address their concerns by formalizing training for native ministry and providing support, financial and administrative in this area.

Series consists of two subseries: 1) Secretary and Office Files, 1979-1997, 2) Training for Native Ministry Committee, 1978-1990.

Continuing education has been a valued aspect of UC ministry since union. In 1928 the General Council asked theological schools to provide continuing education for their graduates. The 1968 General Council cemented continuing education by providing three weeks continuing education leave for all ministry personnel. They also created the Continuing Education Fund where money could be made available to underwrite some of the costs involved. The Continuing Education Fund was administered by DMPE. DMPE held the portfolio of continuing education for all if its existence, and the following records reflect the work of the division to foster continuing education by maintaining programs and providing funding.

Series consists of three series: 1) Secretary and Office Files, 1960-1983, 2) Continuing Education Committee, 1969-1991, 3) Colleges and Training Schools, 1968-1981.
