Florida – Georgia District Pastors’ Conference

September 19-21, 2016   @ The Rosen Plaza Hotel in Orlando

Registration is now closed. Please contact Kathy Keene for late registration:

This Fall we will continue in our District theme of “Engaging in The Master’s Business” by focusing on how Pastors, ministers, and leaders of congregations lead their people to Gospel-motivated action.  The event will include plenary and break-out sessions designed to lead participants through various topics that encourage and equip us to lead our people while engaging in our own work as Christians in the world.

This event includes Pastors and those who work within that office to lead congregations and ministries.

The Pastor’s Conference cost is assessed to each of the congregations in the district.  You will be receiving the assessment in early August.  This will pay for your conference registration and travel equalization between all those who attend.


Retired Pastors

It is the tradition of the Pastor’s Conference to gift one night’s lodging to our retired brothers who have been members of the Florida-Georgia District for five years.

We are not able to cover retired travel expenses however.  Please consider carpooling with your pastor! Please use the travel equalization form to be reimbursed for your hotel room stay.  Don’t forget to include the room receipt.  Thank you for attending!
