The Central New York District is a district of the Wesleyan Church devoted to “Transforming lives, churches, and communities with the hope and holiness of Jesus Christ” and “Celebrating every time a disciple makes a disciple and a church multiplies itself until the Wesleyan Church has a faithful presence in every zip code.”

Our district consist of 48 churches in Central New York and the northern tier of Pennsylvania. Our churches range in age from over 150 years to less than ten years, and in size from over 1500 down to 25. The reported total overall Sunday morning worship attendance in 2017 was over 7,000.

The eastern border of the district goes from the northern most corner of Jefferson County NY on the St. Lawrence River south into the state of Pennsylvania. The southern border of the district follows PA state routes 106 and 6 including portions of Wayne county and also, Susquehanna, Bradford, and Tioga counties. The western district boundary then extends north to the Rochester area and Lake Ontario, which also serves as a natural, northern boundary.
