"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.
