Welcome to the Northwest Plains District of the West Ohio Annual Conference of the United Methodist Church! We are United Methodists in northwestern Ohio seeking to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world. Our area includes Allen, Auglaize, Defiance, Hancock, Hardin, Mercer, Paulding, Putnam, Van Wert and Williams counties, the portion of Wyandot county in West Ohio Conference, and a portion of Henry County.
The United Methodist heritage of the Northwest Plains began with the formation of classes and local congregations by Evangelical Association, Methodist Episcopal, Methodist Protestant and United Brethren preachers and laity. It continues today with United Methodists working together to offer Christ to others through congregations and ministries in a town and country setting.
