The Florida Chapter
The Florida Chapter is the Alliance of Divine Love’s first and largest State Chapter, representing 400+ ministers. It was founded in 1974 by Rev. Dr. Barbara Hanshaw who presided over her Florida ADL Family until her passing in 2011. ADL Ministers cover the State of Florida from Key West to Jacksonville with substantial presence in Palm Beach County, Orlando and Gainesville.
Operating as a State Chapter under the Guidance of the National Board of Trustees of the ADL, Board Members are elected by the State Membership and volunteer their service. It is the duty of the State Board to serve ADL Ministers in Florida by increasing heartfelt communications and comradery within the community as well as representing the Alliance of Divine Love in Florida through education and outreach.
New Regional “GEO GROUPS” within the State of Florida are working to increase contact and to ensure that the Board of Trustees for this State Chapter serves its members and is responsive to its members’ needs and wishes. Members and the public interested in instruction, spiritual support or services may contact our Regional Representatives (Board-Appointed Team Captains):
