Pentecostal Chaplain

About the Pentecostal Church

The Pentecostal Church is found within the mainstream of orthodox evangelical protestant faith. As a movement the church is less than 100 years old. While Pentecostals emphasize the physical expression of God's inner dwelling through spiritual and supernatural gifts, we also are known for our ministry to the fringes of society, cultural diversity and passion for talking about God to others. At UBC, our ministry is made up of more than just Pentecostals; virtually every Christian denomination has been represented in our community at one time or another.

Chaplain profile

Reverend Arthur Howard

Pentecostal Chaplain - Arthur Howard

University was an exciting and important time in my life. I was challenged academically, I enjoyed UBC campus life, and I met lifelong friends. But best of all I enjoyed my time with a community of students who loved God and wanted to make a difference in this world for Him.

Through the Pentecostal Chaplaincy, we sponsor a multi-denominational Christian student group. We try to be a community where you discover what it means to integrate what you learn in the classroom with the Christian Faith. University Christian Ministry (UCM) at UBC is a student community passionate for Christ, excited about His transforming power at work in our lives and open to God's life changing power through the Holy Spirit.

We believe in being ... light-hearted, but not light-headed; holy but human; in the world, but not of it; serious without causing wrinkles; and open-minded without compromising our commitment to Christ. We'd love to have you drop by!

More about Arthur

I met two people who are very important in my life while I was a student: my wife Janice and closest friend Jesus. I have a BSc in Agriculture Economics from UBC, a Masters (MDiv) from Regent College and my Doctorate of Ministry from Carey Theological College. Janice and I have two children, Jean May and Jonathan. As a family we have lived both in Asia and here in Vancouver therefore we love different foods and people. My favorite activities include hiking local trails, skiing, sailing, and walking with my wife along the Spanish Banks.
