Our vision is to ignite and sustain a passionate, spiritual connection with Christ among all people in Western Pennsylvania.
Our mission is to provide leadership, connection and resources to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.
Our core value is love; We love the Lord our God with all our hearts, souls, minds and strength and our neighbors as ourselves. This value is commanded by Jesus, inspired by our Wesleyan heritage including to spread scriptural holiness over the land, and witnessed through our integrity, accountability and inclusiveness.
The Western Pennsylvania Annual Conference, also known as the Western PA Conference or WPAUMC, includes all or part of 23 counties in the western third of Pennsylvania. The Conference has 10 districts and is entirely within the region known as Appalachia. The geography is diverse, from plains around Lake Erie to rolling foothills and mountains, with thick, native woodlands in the Allegheny National Forest and the vibrant urban center of Pittsburgh -- the second largest city in PA.
The Conference administrative offices, as well as the Bishop's office, are located in The United Methodist Center in Cranberry Township, about 20 miles north of Pittsburgh along the Interstate 79 corridor.
