Annual Gathering & Meeting and General Synod

Thanks to everyone who helped to make our Penn West Conference Annual Gathering & Meeting such an amazing one to remember! We were truly blessed to have the Rev. Traci Blackmon with us. Please save the dates for our 2020 Annual Gathering & Meeting at California University of Pennsylvania. It will be held on June 12-13, and our featured presenter will be the Rev. John Dorhauer, General Minister & President of the United Church of Christ.

And thanks to all our delegates who represented our Conference so well at the 32nd General Synod of the United Church of Christ in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. It was truly an amazing experience. General Synod 33 is scheduled to be held from July 16-20, 2021 in Kansas City MO.


Our Global Missions Team is continuing to share the good news about our SHEEP fund to help with educational opportunities for both children and ministry students with our partners in the Northwest Luzon Conference of the United Church of Christ in the Philippines. “SHEEP” stands for “Sustaining Hope for Educational Expenses in the Philippines.” To donate, please make a donation to the Penn West Conference and put “SHEEP Fund” in the memo. Or, visit click on the donate button on this page and choose the option for the United Church of Christ in the Philippines.
