THE FLORIDA BAPTIST ASSOCIATION

Sean McMahon

Welcome to the online home of the Florida Baptist Association. It is our hope that this website will be a valuable tool for pastors and church leaders looking for ministry resources and for area residents exploring the many church options in the region.

We have the honor of representing 60 churches in our four-county region, each with a distinct personality, worship style and vision. It is our mission to support each one and come alongside their pastors and leaders to impact their congregations and their communities.

This site provides church leaders with valuable resources and information to assist with the everyday work of ministry. From programs and events to training and counseling, the Florida Baptist Association is here to partner with those who are committed to making a difference. Check back often, as we are regularly updating the site with new resources and events.

We also offer a convenient church locator tool, “OUR CHURCHES,” for those searching for a church home in Tallahassee or throughout the Big Bend area. The tool provides contact information for all 60 churches, plus links to most websites to explore their culture and distinctives. Whether you are new to our area, or simply seeking a place to worship, serve and fellowship, we hope the Church Locator tool will help you learn more about the churches of our association.

My hope is that the site will better equip pastors and lay leaders for the work of ministry, and that it will enhance the churches of our area.

IN THE SPOTLIGHT

“EVERY GIFT, EVERY SIZE”

2017 Mother’s Day Offering for the Florida Baptist Children’s Home -Sunday, May 14

Your gift makes a difference. “Every Gift, Every Size” is crucial to changing the life of One More Child. Every single gift has immense potential to provide hope and healing. Here’s why:

  • In 2015, there were nearly 428,000 children in foster care in the United States, 13,500 more than the year before.
  • An estimated 5.9 million children worldwide died before their 5th birthday in 2015.
  • In Florida, nearly 16,000 children were removed from their homes due to abuse, abandonment or neglect, while more than 20,000 children per month are part of investigations of abuse, abandonment or neglect; one in six struggle with hunger.
  • Additionally, Florida was home to the third-most reported cases of sex trafficking in the U.S.

How did your Florida Baptist Children’s Home, Orphan’s Heart, and Porch Light Respond?

In 2016, we impacted 171,273 children and individuals through services provided and by equipping them through advocacy, training, awareness and volunteering. We served 3,060,282 meals both domestically and around the world. We also provided the equivalent of 170,422 days of childcare to Florida’s children.

Additionally, our Sanctity of Human Life ministry impacted more than 3,400 lives through education efforts & sharing life-saving messages to advocate for unborn children. Plus, 41 women and children were provided housing, resources and spiritual guidance through our Brave Moms program. It launched in 2016 to help courageous single mothers get on the path to self-sufficiency.
