West Virginia North District

Church of the Nazarene


Mountaineer Country of West Virginia North District is a pleasing patchwork of old and new, high-tech and down-home, front-burner energy and back-porch relaxation. The patchwork begins with our people; mostly descendants of European immigrants who came in the last century for coal mining and steel production. Add the mountain bikers, hikers, rafters, rock climbers, sportsmen and nature lovers drawn by the region's mountains, rivers, forests and trails. Piece it together with a vibrant intellectual, artistic and sports community made of tens of thousands of students at colleges, along with the state-of-the-art technological centers these schools support. Finally, mix in pioneer history come to life, the best Italian food you've ever tasted, arts and crafts, joyful festivals and your own back road discoveries, and you've got the colorful quilt that is Mountaineer Country.

West Virginia North is a diverse ministry field with opportunities in rural to medium sized communities. Our district currently has 50 churches with NewStart churches and targeted areas for future development. We maintain close contact with our churches and pastors with annual visits by the Superintendent and one of the strongest camp programs in the denomination, shared with West Virginia South District.

West Virginia Nazarenes have a heart for people! From community life in rural towns or growing midsize cities there is a welcoming environment for ministry. Our worship environment ranges from traditional to cutting edge. Most of our churches are filled with blended celebration that understands our heritage but looks to the future by seeking to meet the needs of people.

Come and join us for worship and discover what God has for you.
