Florida Bible College has produced thousands of Free Grace advocates, including many hundreds of Free Grace pastors. In the early seventies it was the fastest growing Bible college in America. At its peak it had over 1,500 students and was continuing to grow rapidly.
The school went into decline in the mid to late seventies when it became known that the President had been involved in an affair. Student enrollment dropped to a few hundred by the time it moved to Kissimmee, FL in the mid-eighties, only to close in the late nineties.
The expected launch date of the new Florida Bible College is set for the fall of 2013. It is to meet in the facilities of Calvary Community Church in Tampa. Ralph “Yankee” Arnold is the Pastor of CCC and will be the President.
This move has been met with great joy by most FBC alumni and by those of us in the Free Grace movement who know about FBC.
