For those of you who are not aware of the history of what has happened
between Florida Bible College and Florida Bible Church,I would like to
open up a discussion here about the past history between Florida Bible
College and Florida Bible Church.

In the mid 1990's the Board of Elders from Florida Bible Church in
Hollywood Florida took full voting control of Florida Bible College.In
the short time that Florida Bible Church took voting control over
Florida Bible College,about two and a half years,Florida Bible Church
closed and sold off all of the Florida Bible College assets,keeping all
or most of the Florida Bible College assets(except for some things like
part of the Florida Bible College library which went to Southeastern
Bible College),and claiming that the college had caused the church a
total of $200,000.00 in debt.Florida Bible Church refuses to show its
financial records to FBC Alumni who have asked to see Florida Bible
College financial records from the time that the Florida Bible Church
Elder Board was in voting control of Florida Bible College until the
time when the school closed and its assets were sold(or given to
Southeastern Bible College,and Florida Bible Church and its Christian

During this time Florida Bible Church Senior Pastor Jimmy Sheffield
became President of Florida Bible College.Former Florida Bible Church
Senior Pastor Jimmy Sheffield was soon caught in adultry and he
resigned from both Florida Bible Church and Florida Bible College.The
fact that Florida Bible Church Pastor Jimmy Sheffield became involved
in adultry did a great amount of damage to the reputation of Florida
Bible College who twenty years earlier had another past President named
Dr. A. Ray Stanford who was also was caught in adultry while he was the
President of Florida Bible College.

It is believed that Florida Bible Church sold the Florida Bible College
Kissimmee, Florida campus,once valued between 3.8 and 4.2 million
dollars,for less than a million dollars.It is also believed that the
buyer then resold the former Florida Bible College Kissimmee, Florida
campus for twice what they had just paid for it, within one week of
buying the property from Florida Bible Church.

Some Florida Bible College alumni believe that the devil closed Florida
Bible College.A new board of directors has been formed for Florida
Bible College,and they have legally begun a ten year process to
re-start Florida Bible College. I wish them well. Their website is
located at:
A Florida Bible College Alumni website has also started and is located
There is a debate between Pastor Steve Bils who leads up the Florida
Bible College Alumni Association, and Dr. Michael E. Schmidt who seems
to be leading up the group that has started the ten year long process
to re-open Florida Bible College.Pastor Steve Bils believes that
Florida Bible College should never be re-open,while Dr. Michael E.
Schmidt believes that it was God's will to re-start Florida Bible

In his service,
