Bishop's Calendar

EDIT INTRO TEXT

Note: This is not a comprehensive calendar. Some meetings are of a private and confidential nature, and some days are blocked out for travel or preparation; these activities do not appear on the schedule. The Bishop seeks to respond to invitations that advance the mission and reflect the diversity of the Annual Conference, and visits are generally scheduled nine months to one year in advance. He also considers it a great privilege to share the gospel and to encourage clergy and laity throughout the Florida Conference.

Inquiries about the schedule can be forwarded to:
