Bishop's Regional Gatherings 2018

The Cross and the Flame:

Conversations with Bishop Carter


Thank you to the over 1,200 people who attended one of our Regional Gatherings or joined us on-line. The video above is a message from me and an update on our time together. As we journeyed around the state, I was reminded again of the importance of us being on mission together.  We give thanks to the churches who hosted these events and to those who attended. We pray God will continue to walk with all of us as together we seek to make disciples of Jesus for the transformation of communities in Florida and beyond. If you have feedback about the gathering, click here to fill out the survey. If you were unable to attend, a compilation video of the events will be available on our website next week.

The Peace of the Lord,
Bishop Ken Carter 


Bishop Carter will hold four regional gatherings in September of 2018.

Each event will begin at 6:30 p.m., and a reception will follow.
