Total distributions from the Florida One Fund have exceeded $814K to date.  Recipients have included SEND>FL Church Planting, Florida Baptist Disaster Relief, One More Child, Baptist University of Florida, Florida Baptist Pastor & Family Theological Education Scholarships, and other missions and ministries. 




Pastor Bob Franquiz

Calvary Fellowship - Miramar, FL

FBFS cared about the spiritual dynamics of the church along with the financials, a true partnership of fiscal and spiritual.

Dr Wesley Green

Christway Baptist Church – Miramar, FL

I didn’t have to convince them to lend us money, that’s usually how other lenders work. FBFS was working to convince ME that they could assist us. It was amazing.

Pastor David Hughes

Church By The Glades – Coral Springs, FL

CGIF is different because they understand churches; it’s not just about finances.

Rev David Malmberg

Dunns Creek Baptist Church – Jacksonville, FL

We were impressed with the leadership and the plan, it was a great win for us.

Pastor Ken Whitten

Idlewild Baptist Church – Lutz, FL

THEY are WE. FBFS is US. It’s like talking to a family member about money.

Dr. Donnie Elkins

Jacksonville Height Baptist Church – Jacksonville, FL

You were always available, always helpful, and always prayerful.

Pastor Camm Triggs

Grace Alive Church – Orlando, FL

Their heart for our community just really connected us as partners in the mission to reach central Florida.

Bryan Samms

River City Baptist Church – Jacksonville, FL

FBFS has supported our church in a greater way than just traditional banking.

Pastor David Acton

New Hope Church - Cape Coral, FL

A “One Stop Shop” for your stewardship training needs. Give the FBFS team a call and they will help you equip your leaders, members and staff in biblical stewardship principles.

Dr Mark Gonzales, AMS

Royal Palm Baptist Association - Ft Myers

"Stewardship. Simplified" is a great new tagline and definitely apropos for the new, amplified version of Florida Baptist Financial Services.
