"The mission of the Presbytery of Northern New York is to witness,
with love, to Jesus Christ in word and deed. The Presbytery is called
to inspire and support the growth of leaders and congregations in their
ministry and mission for Christ."
The Presbytery of Northern New York geographically extends from Lake
Champlain on the east to Lake Ontario on the west, bordered by The St.
Lawrence river on the north and extends into the Adirondack mountains to the
south. Recreational enthusiasts can enjoy 4 seasons of fun from
downhill skiing at Whiteface Mountain, home of the 1980 Winter Olympics to
bass fishing in the St Lawrence river or enjoying a quiet day on the
water on Lake Champlain or Lake Ontario. There is also hiking,
mountain climbing and camping in the Adirondacks as well as many fairs and
festivals celebrating the uniqueness and history of the area. Our dairy industry
and agriculture make up a large part of the economy, as well as tourism, and
support our many small towns and villages. Watertown in the west and
Plattsburgh in the east are the largest communities. Ft. Drum, home of
the 10th Mountain Division, is the north country's largest employer.
