    The Upper New York Conference of The United Methodist Church



    What is Outward!

    This Conference-wide Spring Event is designed and presented by the Conference Council on Youth Ministries. It is the opportunity for young people and their youth leaders throughout the Conference to gather for Great Worship, Great Speakers, Great Music, Great Fun. Though times of worship, a variety of speakers (young and not so young), workshops, service activities, and late night fun, the youth and adults of the Upper New York Conference spend the weekend meeting others who are at various stages of their faith journeys and building their relationship with God. 

    With more than 140,000 members, the Upper New York Annual (Regional) Conference of The United Methodist Church comprises 825 local churches and 90 new faith communities in 12 districts, covering 48,000 square miles in 49 of the 62 counties in New York state. Our vision is to “live the Gospel of Jesus Christ and to be God’s love with our neighbors in all places."
