Welcome to the Western New York Conference of the First Episcopal District. We are excited to have you visit our Episcopal District website today so that prayerfully you will learn more about us and all that we do to serve the people and communities of the Buffalo, Albany-Rochester District of the Western New York Conference. Our Conference is represented by a diverse group of local church congregations that are nestled strategically throughout the beautiful western landscape of the State of New York. As the Presiding Elder of the Buffalo-Albany-Rochester District it is a privilege to serve the people of this Conference along with my lovely wife as we work diligently to support the various pastors assigned to lead each of the local church congregations assigned to our hands.

Please visit our Official Western New York Conference Website as well to take a closer look at the ministries and work we are doing throughout the Buffalo-Albany-Rochester District. On behalf of each of our Pastors, Ministers, Lay Leaders and Congregation members we invite you and your family to drop by and visit one of our local A.M.E. Churches as we look forward to serving you through the many ministry programs of Worship, Praise, Evangelism and Outreach offered throughout the District. Thank you taking time to explore and learn more about us! Please let us know how we can help you and your family to grow and prosper in the body of Christ Jesus through the diverse ministry of the African Methodist Episcopal Church. God Bless You!
