Welcome to the SC Upstate Diocese - COOLJC!  The South Carolina Upstate Diocese consists of over 26 local churches, spread out across 5 Districts.  The pastors of our churches, along with their ministry teams focus on bringing the gospel to all people.  You can find a list of all of our churches with their contact information and come visit us.  Our great leader, Bishop David A. Smith would love to hear from you so feel free to give him a call or send him an email.


We hold quarterly state conventions and participate in several international convocations.
