Make An Impact for the Heavenly Kingdom

Apartment Ministries

We have active ministries in Alachua Apartments. An event is held about every six weeks. Patti Kaswinkel and the Acteens of Alachua share the Gospel through a puppet show depicting salvation, serve food, and provide craft projects.

Baptist Collegiate Ministry

The Baptist Collegiate Ministry exists to connect local college students to a relationship with Jesus. The BCM exists to partner with local churches, challenge students to be active in ministry on campus, and to provide programs to help students mature.

Church Planter Partnerships

We facilitate relationships between church planters and member churches to assist the church planters as they engage our community to share the Gospel. Our member churches provide mentoring, encouragement, support, and wisdom for our church planters.

Alachua County Fair Ministries

Each year, during the 3rd week of October, we host a booth at the Alachua County Fair to share the Gospel and to make the community aware of our member churches. Volunteers from member churches use a variety of ways to share Jesus.

A ministry to homeless men and women.  A church in our Association prepares and serves a meal the second Monday of each month at Helping Hands located at First United Methodist Church.

Here’s Hope

Here’s Hope ministries began in January 2014 with Ridgeview Baptist Church and The Summit Baptist Church. A meal is served and we pray with those at Grace Marketplace the first Saturday of every month

International Learning Center

At the International Learning Center you can learn conversational English in small classes taught by caring individuals who want you to feel comfortable in America.

Middle Florida Baptist Assembly

Middle Florida Baptist Assembly is a Retreat and Conference Center serving Christian groups since 1955. We rent our facilities to member churches, other Christian groups, and various other organizations.

Mobile Dental Clinic

One week in May each year we host the Florida Baptist Convention’s Mobile Dental Clinic. Volunteer dentists from the community and support personnel from our churches staff the clinic. About 75 patients are treated annually at a savings to them of at least $10,000.
