Cornell Club of Sarasota-Manatee
Luncheon with Speaker JB Miller about the Amish/Mennonite Community
What is their history, their core beliefs, and why Sarasota and Pinecraft?
Every winter hundreds of Amish and Mennonites, often referred to as Plain People, come to Sarasota, many settling in Pinecraft, others scatter throughout the County.
But there are many Mennonites who live here year around. What contributions have they made to the area, and what does the future look like for them as a people of faith?
JB Miller, our presenter, grew up in Pinecraft and is a life-long Mennonite. He teaches classes about Mennonites and Amish through the Adult Community Enrichment program of Sarasota County Schools and has been an adjunct instructor at New College of Florida.
