The District Gets a New Name

The District Gets a New Name

Because the hearts and minds of people both in the District and around the world are being drawn to meeting the spiritual needs of the people of the Northeast United States; and,

Because the district’s current name does not match the naming convention used by other districts that have changed their names to better reflect their geographical place in the nation (Northwest District, Pacific Southwest District, and Crossroads District); and,

Because the present name, Eastern New York / New England District of The Wesleyan Church, is a long, cumbersome and inconvenient title to use on a regular basis;

The District Conference 2017 voted that the name Eastern New York / New England District of The Wesleyan Church should be changed to Northeast District of The Wesleyan Church, effective immediately.
