Franklin District

About the District

Welcome to the Franklin District! The people and the pastors of our 105 churches greet you.

The Franklin District is in the center of the Western Pennsylvania Conference of the United Methodist Church. It is the birthplace of the world's oil industry and the home of many faithful United Methodist Christians. Geographically, the district extends from the National Forest to the Ohio border. The historic French Creek, and the Allegheny, Clarion and Shenango rivers run through our valleys. The intersection of Interstates 80 & 79 further make the Franklin District the crossroads of Western Pennsylvania.
