In partnership with the Vancouver School of Theology University Hill Congregation has established the University Hill Scholarship in Pastoral Excellence in honour of our former minister Rev. Dr. Edwin Searcy with gratitude for his twenty years of ministry. The scholarship is normally awarded to a United Church student enrolled at Vancouver School of Theology for their second and third years of study.  It is awarded to a student who shows demonstrated promise for (1) outstanding pastoral and preaching ministry and (2) the work of Christian formation, both in the congregational setting.  
This award of $2500 for each year of the scholarship will be funded by an annual gift from the congregation to the school
