Know About Reunion 2018

Reunion 2018

The 2018 Reunion  is once again emphasizing our roots, EVANGELISM, in reaching another generation for the glory of Christ!

The term Gospelize has recently been popularized by Greg Stier and his Ministry Dare 2 Share. Because of the emphasis that Dare 2 Share has on "Gospelization" and their "Clarity" of the Gospel presentation, Florida Bible College has partnered with Dare 2 Share and their Dare 2 Share Live event.

With this reunion you have the opportunity to help us reach the next generation for Christ.  You will be able to help serve and work along side the youth that will be in attendance. What an exciting opportunity!

If you are unable to help, that's ok.  Attend and mingle with all the young people and alumni and friends that will be at the event.  You will be able to gather before and after the Dare 2 Share Live event to fellowship. Those that serve will not be required to pay the $20 registration fee for the Dare 2 Share Live event.


Know About

Reconnect with old friends and make new friends

and make new friends

There will be a renewal of fellowship of many brothers and sisters in Christ.  There will be a refreshing of souls and the changing of lives. The Gospel will be given to hundreds of young people. Let us pray the Lord will work a mighty work in the hearts of the youth and our own during this youth event and our reunion.

This will be an opportunity for you to reconnect with old friends of years gone by but will also be a time to make new friends with the next generation for Christ.

We have planned this reunion to be about fellowship with our brothers and sisters in Christ.  To allow us to reach out to the next generation that will take our place reaching the world with the Clear Gospel of Christ.

The reunion will start with a reception on Friday, October 12 at 6:30 pm at Florida Bible College. The reunion will continue with the Dare 2 Share Live event on Saturday followed that night by an After Glow cookies and coffee get together where you will be able to fellowship with other Florida Bible College Alumni and Friends.

Sunday morning we will Worship together at Circle Community Church as Dr. Stan Ponz brings us a message from God's word.  Following the morning service, we will gather at the Embassy Suites Orlando North for a wonderful lunch and time of fellowship. After the lunch, we will gather again Back at the Ranch for a time of fellowship and music.

If you are an alumnus of Florida Bible College or a friend of Florida Bible College we invite you to join us for this time of reaching out to the Next Generation and Fellowship.

Greg is gifted with an ability to inspire teenagers to action by communicating Biblical truth through amazing true-life stories and side-splitting humor.

Shane & Shane

Shane & Shane

Worship Leaders

In the book of Ecclesiastes, Solomon writes: “There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the sun.” For Shane & Shane, the current season can be distilled into two words: discipleship and community.

After more than a decade of relentless touring, where the duo played everywhere from the college circuit to worship arenas to far-flung places, Shane & Shane have shifted the focus of their ministry. Rather than cramming as many dates on the calendar as demand will allow, the dynamic praise & worship duo—known for their celebrated guitar work and trademark harmonies—are pouring their lives into others, discipling musicians and training them in their craft.

Zane Black

Speaker Spotlight: Zane Black

Zane Black

Worship Leaders

Zane Black has always lived life on the edge, looking for all the crazy excitement and adventure life has to offer. He just ended up “going all in” for the wrong things. And it almost cost him his life. But after years of living for cheap thrills and temporary highs, Zane experienced a radical encounter with Jesus that changed his life forever.

With a heart that is on fire for Jesus, Zane has a unique way of relating to teens about the struggles they’re going through and shows them the freedom they can have in Christ. He is passionate about sharing the new life and purpose that he’s found in Jesus.

As a speaker and author, Zane tours with Dare 2 Share and serves with Torchbearers International, challenging students around the world to “go all in” for Jesus.
