Welcome to the Grand Traverse District

We are a district made up of 67 churches; starting all the way up north at Indian River then south to Charlevoix, Empire, Manistee and ending at Hart and Mears on the Lake Michigan shoreline. Then inland to Leroy, Cadillac, Kalkaska and Mancelona and every United Methodist church in between, all west of I-75.

Our vision is to “Connect, Inspire, Equip, Repeat”.

We would love to have you join us at any one of the Grand Traverse District churches.

Charge Conference GTD


The HUB Schedule is where we meet for charge conferences and connect and eat chili!
