Extending East to West From the Great Plains...
Over the Rocky Mountains and Continental Divide to the High Desert with vast stretches of rugged beauty in between - from north to south through mountains, deserts, farms and ranch lands, mines and destinations for tourists, cities and towns - the conference covers all of Colorado and Utah, and most of Wyoming. The Rocky Mountain Conference is geographically the largest conference in the United Church of Christ.
The 82 churches making up the Conference are as diverse as the terrain, ranging from relatively large (1,460 members) to quite small (9 members), and from theologically liberal to theologically conservative - often within the same congregation. The congregations are rural, urban and suburban in their various locations.
