Conference deans are pastors who serve as liaisons between the synod office and the congregations in their conference. They convene meetings of the conference pastors and lay leaders semi-annually, make visits to pastors new to their area, and attend meetings at the synod office regularly.
The synod is divided geographically into 17 conferences. Conferences have two meetings each year to discuss local issues and nominate people for synod offices. Each conference has a dean. The conferences are:
Hudson (Ulster and Dutchess counties)
Delaware Hudson (Orange, Rockland and Sullivan counties)
Tappan Zee (Putnam and Westchester counties)
Peconic (Eastern Suffolk County)
South Shore Brooklyn
This directory lists all congregations by geographic conference. Check our Find a Church page for further congregation information.
