Synod of the Rocky Mountains

The Synod of the Rocky Mountains encompasses one of the most vast and beautiful areas of any synod in the Presbyterian Church (USA).

With more than 443,000 square miles, this inter-mountain Synod includes the states of Montana, Wyoming, Utah, Colorado, the "panhandle" of Nebraska, and a small area of southeastern Idaho. The east/west width of the Synod is 650 miles. The north/south length is 850 miles -- almost the distance between Denver and Chicago.

The economic base of the region is principally agriculture, mining, light industry (electronic and other high technology) as well as recreation, tourism, military offices and installations.

Some 58,200 Presbyterians worship and serve Jesus Christ in 241 congregations. Churches with less than 100 members make up 36% (85 churches) of the synod, while churches with over 900 members constitute only 5% or 13 churches.

The congregations in the Rocky Mountain region are linked together through a network of eight presbyteries. Two of the presbyteries, Yellowstone and Glacier, serve the state of Montana. The states of Utah and Wyoming are each entire presbyteries of their own. Four presbyteries serve congregations in Colorado. Three of the Colorado presbyteries are along the Front Range and one is located on the Western Slope. They are the Presbyteries of Denver, Pueblo, Plains and Peaks (which includes eleven counties in western Nebraska) and Western Colorado.
