The Presbytery of the Western Reserve, a regional governing body of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.), serves forty-five congregations, one new church development and about 9,200 members in Northeastern Ohio. Bordered by Lake Erie on the north coast, the Presbytery includes the Greater Cleveland metropolitan area, Lorain, Ashtabula, small towns and rural communities.

Assumptions Guiding Our Ministry Together:
  • God has placed us here in Northeast Ohio.

  • God has not abandoned the world.

  • God has given each congregation particular gifts.

  • Together we are called to be the body of Christ to equip one another for ministry, to be Christ in and for the world.
