From the mountains to the foothills, in cities and towns throughout Western North Carolina, our churches offer something for everyone.


Youth are more than just our future—they are our present. We invite youth and young adults to participate fully in the life of the Church.


Evangelism through storytelling. We believe that we can walk the Way of Love through sharing the stories of our unique and diverse diocese.
