Who We Are
Welcome to the Northern Virginia District
We are the Northern Virginia District of the United Methodist Church.
Prior to July 2022 we were the Arlington and Alexandria Districts.
Northern Virginia District Clergy can find information about Resource Groups, Clergy meetings, and more online in our Clergy section.
Our laity make ministry happen at their local churches, in their communities, and throughout the world. Find resources for laity and more on our Laity page.

We are excited to lean into sessions and conversations about evangelism in different ministry contexts. Participants will experience the Keynote Presentation as well as two workshops of their choice on January 20 and then will have access to all 13 workshops until July 20.
Training day is HYBRID in 2024. Both In-person and Virtual tickets can be purchased.
