Faith Leaders Advancing Shared Hope

Join the clergy impacting legislative reform for Florida.

The Florida Council of Churches invites clergy to partner together as a Publicly Engaged Church by learning the issues that deny opportunity to Floridians and by collaborating for improving public policy. Attend the third Florida Clergy Convening on September 12-13 in Orlando as we address Public Education Reform, as well as Consumer Law Reform, Criminal Justice Reform, Environmental Law Reform, and Immigration Reform. Your hotel lodging will be provided.
