We are the Northeast Region (NER) and we are "Better Together"!
Together we are 102 Free Methodist churches with two conferences-Genesis and Keystone. Covering parts of Pennsylvania and New York, we spread across northwestern & north central Pennsylvania and across western & central New York.
Together we have one Superintendent and a NERegion team that provide leadership & resources that serve the conferences & churches of the region.
Together we are connected to the Free Methodist Church of North America & its worldwide ministry.
Within the region we enjoy the resources of numerous Free Methodist institutions such as camps, Northeastern Seminary, Roberts Wesleyan College, and Heritage Ministries. Individually we are unique churches of various sizes and styles-rural, urban, village and suburban. Worship attendance ranges from around 10 to over 1000 in contemporary and traditional settings. Some churches have multiple pastors; others have a solo pastor.
Together we are churches grouped and connected as districts for sharing, encouraging, learning, and accountability.
Together we are passionate about missions, building the Kingdom, reaching the un-churched, and helping people discover a relationship with Jesus Christ.
Welcome, and God's best to you!
Superintendent Mitch Pierce
