Biographical history

Nicknamed "Mack the Sky Pilot", John Miller McCormick became Superintendent of the Church Camp Mission of the Navvy Mission Society in cooperation with the Missionary Society of the Canadian Church (M.S.C.C.) in 1909. This position involved travelling to railroad construction, lumber and mining camps as a missionary. From 1919 until 1926 he worked as Publicity Director for the Industrial Christian Fellowship (formerly the Navvy Mission Society) which involved making public lecture tours and crusades in England. After a break from service in the Church, McCormick worked in unemployment camps in the Diocese of New Westminster before transferring to the Diocese of Cariboo in 1932, working there and also in the Diocese of Caledonia in parish work.
