Florida 2018 Winter Pastors' School

Stetson University's Office of Continuing Education and Outreach and Department of Religious Studies are pleased to extend an invitation to the 33rd annual Florida Winter Pastors' School taking place January 30 - February 1, 2018.

The Florida Winter Pastors' School, now in its 33rd year, has developed into one of the best continuing education conferences in the nation for pastors, other church leaders, and interested parties. 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 has started.

A special thanks to our Wednesday Keynote Sponsor!
