The Spiritual Formation Team of Discipleship Ministries of the Florida Conference of the United Methodist Church and the Upper Room welcomes you to our website featuring the Florida Five-Day Academy For Spiritual Formation.
Our first Five-Day Academy was held in March 2001. This year we just hosted our 13th annual academy on March 10-15, 2013, at the Life Enrichment Center in Fruitland Park, Florida. This Academy’s featured presenters were Rev. Dr. Norval Brown and. Dr. Joe Howell.
Now for even more news! We have the dates for next year’s academy in 2014: March 9-14, 2014. Mark your calendars now! The faculty for 2014 will be Rev. Dr. Kay Mutert and Rev. Dr. L Roger Owens. Kay is an accomplished musician, writer, retreat leader and labyrinth facilitator. Roger has been in academia at Duke and will be accepting a position at Pittsburg Theological Seminary this June 2013 as well as being an author and Two Year Academy for Spiritual Formation graduate and faculty presenter.
We invite you to browse through our web site to learn more about the Five-Day Academy experience. We look forward to having you participate in this deeper walk with us.
