An Invitation to 
Spiritual Formation
The truth is that we are each ultimately responsible for our own "soul care." Fortunately, there are many resources and many teachers in our world today to provide us with the tools and inspiration to help us on our "journey of being transformed into the image of Christ for the sake of others" as Dr. Robert Mulholland put it.

The annual ministry of the Spiritual Formation Team of the Florida United Methodist Conference, along with the Upper Room Academy for Spiritual Formation, seeks to bring together renowned teachers and resources in the field of spiritual formation to benefit all who desire to be proactive in their own soul care. It's called the Florida 5-Day Academy for Spiritual Formation.

Please consider this email as your special invitation from the 2024 5-Day Academy Leadership Team to join us March 3-8, 2024 at the Life Enrichment Center in Fruitland Park, Florida, for five days of spiritual inspiration, study, and growth in one of God's most beautiful settings.
