History and Focus

The Wyoming Association of Churches is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit ecumenical faith-based organization with the mission to foster and to promote spiritual growth, stewardship of the land and social justice. We began in 1976 as the Wyoming Church Coalition replacing the Wyoming Church Council that had formed in the 1960’s. In 2003, we changed the name to the Wyoming Association of Churches and the by-laws amended to broaden membership.

Membership is based on a commitment to come together with others, putting aside our differences, to advance our mission. Three teams work to implement the mission through education and advocacy. The three teams are Spiritual Life Team, On Sacred Ground Team, and Peace & Justice Team.
