About Our Conference
Our Conference, called the California-Nevada Annual Conference of the United Methodist Church, is where you will find nearly 80,000 people of faith who are members of diverse cultures, are spread across a diverse geography, and are united in a belief in the One we call Jesus Christ.
Our Conference is divided into five districts made up of more than 370 United Methodist Churches and Fellowships.
- Bay District
- Central Valley District
- El Camino Real District
- Great Northern District
- Los Rios District
Each district is comprised of circuits. There are 40-50 clergy circuits, each having 8-12 members, including a named circuit leader. Guided by circuit leaders, pastors support, challenge and encourage each other; collaborating for ministry development, spiritual growth, mutual accountability, vision-sharing and strategic development toward making disciples and extending Christ's service beyond the church.
