Fall 2013 New Student Orientation.

As the beginning of the 2014 Fall semester at The Baptist College of Florida (BCF) quickly approaches, preparations are well underway for the arrival of new students and the excitement of seeing returning students back on campus. Even though there is still time to enroll in classes, the administration, faculty, and staff are gearing up for all of the upcoming events that are part of this new chapter in the life of the school.

Over the summer, through the hard work and sacrifices of volunteer mission teams from churches throughout the state, the campus has undergone a significant facelift with a fresh coat of paint and numerous facility improvements. Steady progress has been made on BCF President Thomas A. Kinchen's 20/20 Vision including the demolition of several married housing units and construction beginning on the Deese Center, which will serve as the new cafeteria and student center at the college. The considerable progress on the Deese Center is evident by the removal of the fence, strategically aligned surveying equipment and the bulldozers, front end loaders and dump trucks rolling in and out packing down dirt preparing a solid foundation.

Preparing a solid foundation is exactly what BCF is all about. Through the process of training men and women for areas of leadership, ministry, and virtually every area of life, BCF highlights the required Bible courses contained within the curriculum. BCF offers 23 degrees ranging from Contemporary Worship Ministry, Biblical Studies, Elementary Education, Business Leadership, to Missions and Missions with a Concentration in Aviation. The foundational courses within each degree program are solid and designed to equip the next generation with the skills and knowledge they will need to change the world.

BCF students will begin classes on August 18, eager to acquire the education, credentials, and training to prepare them for the future. In addition to the excitement of simply taking classes, students look forward to the inspirational chapel services, Missions Conference, Prayer Conference and team building events held on campus such as the BCF Amazing Race, BCF Olympics, Lakeside Echo, Candyland and intramural sports. All of these opportunities offer the potential for spiritual growth and the probability of creating lifelong friendships and memories.
