The University Church of Christ began in late February, 1970. Initially, five to six families gathered for worship service
in the basement of the Los Angeles County Court House on Civic Center Way in Malibu. The group wished to establish a presence
in Malibu prior to the construction of Pepperdine's new campus. In 1971, the church moved to the first floor court chambers
and converted the basement into classrooms. Founding members include Bill Banowsky, Bill Brown, Ansel Buchanan, Bob Gilliam,
Walter Glass, Grover Goyne, Dude Higgins, Jerry Hudson, Norman Hughes, John Nicks, Ken Perrin, Edward Rockey, Jere Yates,
and M. Norvel Young.
