The Frontier District

The Diocese of Nevada's Frontier District is the northeast quadrant of the State of Nevada. Seven (7) congregations are part of this area and are located in Elko, Winnemucca, Wells, Austin, Eureka, Ely and Pioche. Historically, these communities were vital, dynamic centers of mining in the last century. Each congregation was established more than a century ago. Most have historic, original buildings which are well maintained. Nevertheless, with the exception of Elko and Ely, these communities have seen the effects of dramatic demographic transitions and decline in the last 50 years. Yet each congregation continues to do the work God has given them to do to the best of their ability. Total or mutual ministry, including the calling, formation, and licensing or ordination of ministry teams, has been central to the mission strategy of the Frontier District.
