District Name Changes

District name changes. Several LMC districts have recently merged, some have changed their names plus a couple of new districts formed. The prior Lancaster, Lititz, and Mellinger districts have merged to form the Conestoga River district. These congregations are overseen by bishops Rodney Martin and Joe Miller. The Bowmansville-Reading and Weaverland-NE districts have merged to form the Valley-Mountain-PA East. This new district is led by the bishop team of Eric Marshall, Brian Martin, and James Weick. The prior Ohio district was divided into Great Lakes West and Great Lakes East. Bishop John Nissly provides oversight for Great Lakes West. Great Lakes East is in a bishop search process. The addition of congregations from Florida created a new district, SouthEast Mennonite Conference with oversight in the process. Another new district, Central Penn, was formed and is led by bishop Alan Kauffman. To explore districts and bishop oversight across LMC, check out the About Us tab here in the LMC website.
