South District

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

Welcome to the South District where we are engaged in mission and ministry both locally and globally.  The South District is one of four districts in the Eastern PA Conference of the United Methodist Church.  The South District passionately seeks to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.

Together with Rev. Lin George, our District Resource Assistant, we seek to build up the body of Christ both inside and outside the walls of the church.

The South District Office is located at 107 W. Lancaster Ave., Suite B, in Downingtown, PA.  If you would like further information or church resourcing, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Together in Ministry,

Rev. Dawn Taylor-Storm, District Superintendent &
Rev. Lin George, District Resource Assistant

Due Dates for Charge Conference Packets

These are the latest dates for submitting charge conference packets. If you have them ready earlier and can send them it would be very helpful as they have to be processed and Rev. Taylor-Storm reads all of the reports before the charge conferences.   Please remember to follow the instructions that you received by email on June 26th so that your packets are complete, accurate and appropriately signed before you send them in.


District Office Telephone
610.436.4277

Our number has not changed but when we call you the name you see is “The Well”. The reason is that our office is now on an internal phone system at The Well. Please inform your church office personnel and leadership. We have had reports of people not answering our calls because they don’t know who is calling. THANK YOU!
