Our vision for Western North Carolina Annual Conference and the Uwharrie District is simple:
“More vital churches!” The fact that you are here may indicate an interest in wanting to become or continue growing a vital congregation. Fantastic!
Revitalizing churches isn’t about saving our conference or denomination and it isn’t about maintaining and preserving our buildings. Church vitality is about partnering with the Holy Spirit to reach people for the Kingdom of God!
