2014 Leadership Event Registration
"Jesus is Calling Disciples"
January 25, 2014 at Coshocton Grace UMC 10:00am-3:00pm.
"Strengthening the Body of Christ"
Three Rivers is committed to the mission of the conference, "to make and mature disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world." In addition to administrative services we have developed many opportunities for discipleship and spiritual growth, missions and outreach. Our annual Leadership Event held the last weekend of January continues to be a highlight. Workshops have centered around themes which equip our members to serve together in ministry while growing in our love for others and deepening our relationship with Jesus:
- Doing Whatever It Takes
- Rethink Church
- Open Doors
- Creating Vitality
The 2013 conference will be "Strengthening the Body of Christ." Registration begins in December.
The Three Rivers District was formed in 2005 when the East Ohio Conference reduced the number of districts from twelve to ten. The office is centrally located in Coshocton. The first District Superintendent to serve Three Rivers was Rev. Larry Hukill, serving 2005 to 2008. Rev. James Humphrey was appointed by Bishop Hopkins to serve from July 2008 through June 2014.
Three Rivers District is the largest geographical district in the East Ohio Conference with at least one church in each of the following ten counties: Coshocton, Muskingum, Licking, Knox, Ashland, Wayne, Holmes, Tuscarawas, Harrison and Guernsey. (view map) We currently serve seventy-three churches which are being faithfully shepherded by fifty-six pastors consisting of Elders, Deacons, Full and Part-time Local pastors, and student pastors.

It may be the first Christmas without a loved family member who has recently died; it may be a time that has always been difficult. The anguish of broken relationships, the insecurity of unemployment, the weariness of ill health, the pain of isolation - all these can make us feel very alone in the midst of the celebrating and spending. We need the space and time to acknowledge our sadness and concern; we need to know that we are not alone. For these reasons, The 4Ministry United Methodist Churches of Coshocton (Canal Lewisville, Grace, Park and Roscoe) are coming together to offers a special service for those who are hurting and lonely to be held in at Grace United Methodist Church Sanctuary.
