United Churches of Florida, a new organization dedicated to relating religious thought to a changing modern world, has leased the Fort Harrison Hotel and will operate it as a facility for seminars involving groups of all denominations. Sorel Allen, director of membership and public affairs for United Churches, says the non-profit corporation is leasing the hotel from Southern Land Development and Leasing Corp., which will complete the purchase of the 272-room resort from Jack Tar Hotels Dec. 1. Allen said he will operate his office out of space in the Fort Harrison for the time being, but that since Clearwater will be the main office for the organization additional space probably will be needed. Allen said there will be individual, group and even church denominational memberships in United Churches of Florida, which in turn will permit members to use the facilities here.
