The University Church of Christ (also known as Malibu Church of Christ) began in late February, 1970 in Malibu, California. The congregation has ranged in size from a handful of members to more than 500. The bulk of the collection is made up of bulletins, directories, financial records, correspondence, sermon audio recordings, and meeting minutes ranging in date from 1973 to 2010. Other supplementary documents include the beliefs of the church, mission efforts, building plans, and ministerial positions in the church.
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 the families of 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.
