The PNWD serves 58 member congregations, as well as two emerging congregations, in Alaska, Western Idaho, Oregon and Washington, and covers over 800,000 square miles of land, the largest in the UUA. PNWD congregations currently count over 9300 adult members.
In 1962 thirteen churches and forty-seven fellowships across Idaho, Oregon, Washington, British Columbia, Alaska and Missoula, Montana evolved as a new organization. A board of directors was formed, bylaws created and staff gathered. Peter Raible was responsible for the over-all operation as District Executive. Robert Fulghum traveled the district as Fellowship Consultant, meeting with members in their home congregations. Religious Education Consultant Eleanor Hunting was the resource person for churches developing their religious education programs. These three staff members each worked one-third time for the district. The only full-time employee was the administrative assistant, Marge Lueders. The Pacific Northwest District of the Unitarian Universalist Association of Congregations was born.
Effective January 31, 2017, the PNWD will no longer maintain a physical office.
