Florida Region

ALOA – Florida is the first Region chartered by ALOA and will be a model for Regional Development across the country. The strength of the Florida Region is built on the commitment of those active in ministry for older adults, individually and in congregations, as well as the support and inter-Lutheran partnership of the Florida-Bahamas Synod (ELCA) and Florida-Georgia District (LCMS).
