Pastors' School

Stetson University's Office of Boundless Learning and Department of Religious Studies are pleased to extend an invitation to the 31st annual Florida Winter Pastors' School, which will take place February 2 - 4, 2016.

The Florida Winter Pastors’ School - now in its 31st - year, has developed into one of the best continuing education conferences in the nation for pastors and other church leaders. The Pastors’ School brings to Stetson University nationally-recognized scholars, pastors, and other creative individuals who are experts on biblical interpretation, pastoral care, preaching, worship, and other areas important for church leaders. Each year since 1986, the conference has hosted pastors of more than 20 denominations from the U.S. and Canada. A few of our attendees have been present almost every year since the program started.

The conference takes place between noon on Tuesday and lunch on Thursday - with an opening banquet on Tuesday evening - followed by a public worship service. The conference features three speakers, with time allotted also for dialogue between the speakers and conference participants.
