The 206 Congregations of the synod are grouped into three Mission Districts (North, Southwest, Southeast) which are served by three Assists to the Bishop. To facilitate additional community ministry, the congregations in each Mission District are also organized into smaller clusters called Conferences. There are 15 Conferences in the Florida-Bahamas Synod. (text courtesy of Florida-Bahamas Synod)
