From the Desk of Bishop Mark J. Webb:

Open letter to Emanuel AME Church

I urge all United Methodist Christians in Upper New York to continue to be in fervent prayer for the community of Charleston, S.C., our sisters and brothers of Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church, and the family and friends of the victims killed in the horrendous acts of violence committed on June 17. As people of faith, may we continue to work toward justice, including the end of gun violence and acts of racism in our society. Let us boldly proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ, in word and action, lifting high the amazing love of God in the midst of violence and division that is our human condition.


Bishop Mark J. Webb 

Upper New York Area Resident Bishop















Welcome and thanks for visiting!

Our Vision: To live the gospel of Jesus Christ and to be God’s love with our neighbors in all places.

Our Purpose: Growing in our relationship with God, Being the body of Christ within the world, and Living in accordance with the example of Jesus Christ by:

  • Engaging, equipping and empowering local churches to be in ministry with and to our Global Neighborhood;
  • Encouraging and developing leadership within the laity and clergy that is diverse yet united by our love for Christ; and
