United in Christ, Committed to Transformation
Creating Disciples, Celebrating Diversity,
Connecting Communities, Committing to Love and Justice
The Eastern Pennsylvania Conference of the United Methodist Church is made up of about 415 churches, which serve nearly 103,000 members in 16 counties. Led by Bishop John Schol, the Conference’s mission is to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.
Today, this mission is the focus of the conference’s churches–congregations which speak to diverse and multi-generational populations in the many cities, towns, and rural areas throughout our area. These congregations seek to call persons to new life in Christ, nurture persons to be disciples of Jesus Christ, and address the needs in our communities as well as throughout the world through mission and ministry and by advocating for justice.
