What is the role of the Central Atlantic Conference?

The conference exists to provide its associations, churches, clergy and laity with an extensive and varied support system, challenging them to a higher, broader and deeper vision of Christian ministry; strengthening and sustaining them in their efforts to be faithful in mission, and linking them to wider church agencies and to each other.  It strives to lift up and celebrate our unity in Christ, the gift of our heritage and the richness of our diversity; and to be an agent of mission in our society and the global community.

The purpose of the conference, in all its elements, is to support, challenge and strengthen the local churches, bringing them together in community and mission and in relation to the larger church and society, consistent with the Constitution and Bylaws of the United Church of Christ.

What Is the Central Atlantic Conference?

The Central Atlantic Conference includes 185 United Church of Christ congregations in the Mid-Atlantic region, covering New Jersey, Delaware, Maryland, the District of Columbia and parts of Virginia and West Virginia.  It includes 40,000 local church members and approximately 400 ordained ministers.
