The late Dr. Hank Lindstrom founded the church 51 years ago. Our commitment to missions is one of our ways of honoring his legacy. Dr. Lindstrom was one of the greatest missionaries to graduate from Florida Bible College.

Open to all. If you have ever been a part of the ministry of Calvary Community Church, come celebrate with us. There will be recognition of special guests, missionaries from around the world, special guest speakers, and third-Sunday dinner for all at no charge.

Dr. Ralph "Yankee" Arnold (Host Pastor)

Helping to raise funds for missionaries is one of things in the Lord's work that I truly enjoy the most. I pray that you will join me by attending and supporting our Mission Fund for these Florida Bible College 'clear gospel missionaries'. The first service begins on Sunday morning at 10:30. We will have a huge "Third Sunday Dinner" in our gymnasium to kick off our Third Missions Conference. It's just like having a great family reunion. You are all invited.

Here is a list of Missionaries/Missions supported through Calvary Community Church

Mrs. Peggy Sperling -- Missionary to China

Peggy was in the first graduating class of Colorado Bible College. Jon is the in-country Director for Asia. Peggy has a wonderful soul-winning ministry to the women in China. Her focus is on marriage, parenting, and relationships.

Dr. Birbal Boodram and his wife Annette

Dr. Boodram is a graduate of Florida Bible College and doing a wonderful work for the Lord in Trinidad. He is the founder of the Trinidad Bible Institute where several hundred graduates have also been trained in the clarity of the gospel.

George and Linda Heckman of New Tribes Mission

George is also a graduate of Colorado Bible College. He and Linda have been with New Tribes for over 35 years. They faithfully hold the ropes while other missionaries are going over the edge of civilization to reach those that are dangling over the flames of Hell.

Evangelist Freddie Coile

Freddie is an FBC grad whose messages are powerful, truthful, doctrinal, and spiritually convicting. I have no reservations in recommending him to any church as a man of God  who is well versed in the scriptures.

Dr. Charlie Bing of Grace-Life Ministries

Dr. Charlie Bing is being used by the Lord to not only reach the lost but to disciple many pastors around the globe on the clarity of the gospel. He has preached the gospel to over 10,000 people and he helped train at least 2,000 pastors and church workers to contend for the faith

Bruce and Jackie Campbell Missionary -- Thailand

Bruce trusted the Lord at the West Coast Youth Ranch and attended Florida Bible College. He has served over 10 years in Hong Kong, 5 years in China and in Thailand for the last 5 years. He is a missionary that is worthy of support.


Pastor Matt Floyd is Planting a New Church  in Florida City, Florida

Matt is a graduate of Dayspring Bible College that was founded by Dr. James Scudder. Matt is the son of Mike Floyd who was head of the college for many years and a graduate of Florida Bible College. Matt started a new church called Calvary Baptist Church. Matt and I joined with Dr. Ron Seecharan in India to speak at the Solid Rock Theological Seminary.
Dr. Ron Seecharan is one of the great missionaries from Florida Bible College to the people of India. His Bible Institute has trained over 500 graduates. We are proud to support works like this.
100% of all mission giving is used for meeting the needs of our missionaries. Would you like to have a part?

We believe that supporting Florida Bible College of Tampa will help produce more missionaries on the clarity of the Gospel. We want to take this opportunity to invite all the Florida Bible College Alumni to attend and partner with us in the World's Greatest Challenge of winning souls by supporting missions.

Greg Sirmons is also a graduate of Florida Bible College and has been serving in France for many years. We should not forget those who have gone to foreign countries to serve the Lord. 
Joe and Terri Potter are Florida Bible College graduates and served many years in South America. They are back in America stirring up disciples for the Lord's work.  
It will certainly be a blessing to have a "STAR" missionary like Mark and Terry Barnes to also attend and speak for us this year.
January 1985 to March 2006
Missionaries to Papua New Guinea, Mission school teachers at Numonohi Christian Academy, and Bible Teacher / Mentor / Discipleship

Everyone is invited to attend.

Meals will be provided on Sunday morning and Monday-Wednesday evening. If you are planning on dining with us (at no charge), please call the church office at 813-884-4328 so we may better serve you.

Rev. Richard Haynes was definitely a "Man on a Mission". Dick graduated from Florida Bible College and although he didn't cross the ocean to be a missionary, he, without a doubt, was a missionary with a heart. One of his last heroic acts was driving teenagers to Georgia Camp while he was half dead. Dick did not know how to slow down, take it easy, or stop. God bless his wonderful testimony.

Let's keep running the race until there is nothing left to give.
