The New Wilmington Mission Conference is held on the Campus of Westminster College. The college is tucked into the rolling hills of Western PA offering beautiful views and scenery. Participants live in the dorms, and meet in various locations around the campus. There is a good deal of walking between meeting locations, including some hills.

For those for whom dorm-living presents a challenge, several local hotels are offering discounted rates. More information is available here, as well as through the NWMC Office.
