Dear Alumni

Greetings in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!

The fact that you have graduated from South Florida Bible College & Theological Seminary is a milestone of which you can be proud. Today many students have graduated from colleges and universities that are no longer in existence. No one wants to be a graduate of a school that has ceased to exist.

This brings us to the question, “What can we do to make sure that SFBC&TS will survive and thrive, so that others may have the same opportunity we had for a quality biblical education?”

Those of us who have gone on to reach our fullest potential by earning sizeable incomes, or becoming paid servants because of the biblical principles and confidence in the Lord that SFBC&TS has instilled in us, should pass on the opportunity for a quality biblical education by continued involvement with our school. Because of SFBC&TS, we are now light bearers, “passing the light to the next generation.” We have an opportunity to leave a legacy that keeps on shining.

For those of you who are willing to accept the torch and commit to passing it on, we thank God for touching your hearts. Thank you for making a commitment. By your actions, you are making it possible for many worthy young men and women to have the advantage of a quality Christian education.
