The Synod of the Mid-Atlantic

Synod of the Mid-Atlantic Map


The Synod of the Mid-Atlantic continues striving to be faithful stewards in an atmosphere of change and transition in the church and in society as a whole. At this writing, as the PC(USA) seeks to discern the future of its governance system—including the place of synods in that structure—the downsizing of staff and office operations has reached a level intended to be sustainable for the coming few years. In light of the stressors on its presbyteries, the synod has sought to reduce its operational costs while maintaining those services and resources vital to the work of the presbyteries. The synod also retains its focus on administering a variety of funds and endowments supporting college and seminary scholarships, congregational mission endeavors, and mission initiatives among multiple presbyteries.

The synod is made up of 14 presbyteries totaling more than 1,400 congregations throughout the states of Delaware, Maryland, North Carolina, and Virginia; the District of Columbia; and several counties in West Virginia. Within its bounds are Union Presbyterian Seminary, conference centers at Massanetta Springs (VA) and Montreat (NC), and nearly a dozen Presbyterian-related colleges and universities.
