Northwest District


The Northwest District is comprised of 85 churches in Lebanon, ColumbiaNorthumberland, Berks, and Schuylkill Counties.  It is one of six districts that make up The Eastern Pennsylvania Conference of The United Methodist Church. We hope this website will be a resource to our churches as together we fulfill our mission to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.

The Northwest District is currently led by District Superintendent, the Rev. H. Joe Tyson.

Our District Resource Assistant is Mrs. Christine Eddy.
