The Florida District of the Wesleyan Church Spiritual Formation Department is here to assist churches and pastors. All of the various department directors, Gigi Laursen – Women’s Ministries, Paul Coate – Men’s Ministries, Eleanor Ladd – Children’s Ministries, Mike Oliver – Youth Ministries, Todd Sloan – Student Development, and John Croft – Global Partners are available for services, resource recommendations, and “brainstorming” with the local church staff.
The district youth team is available for ideas and consultation for youth ministry as well as help planning zone events. The children’s ministry team can conduct training, VBS, or children’s rallies. The adult team can speak at your adult gatherings, organize activities, assist in forming your own adult ministry and other resources.
The director of the Spiritual Formation Department, Eleanor Ladd, is also available to assist churches in the area of discipleship training, Christian education and other areas of Spiritual Formation. There is no cost for these services, however, a love offering to defray the travel expense would be appreciated or to cover actual material expenses, i.e., VBS supplies.
If you are interested in utilizing any of these resources, please contact either the district office or you may contact these individuals directly. We look forward to working with you in Kingdom building.
