Florida Free exists to train missionaries to meet the tremendous need to tell others about Christ around the world. Training is received at no cost so students can be free of debt. This allows them to go to the mission field immediately after graduation.
“In light of recent events around the world, we realize there is an urgent need to tell others about Christ. All over the world there are people waiting to hear the message of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
“It is the purpose of Florida Free Bible, Missionary, & Work Training Center (BMW) to train missionaries to meet these tremendous needs. Teen Missions International, Inc. underwrites the BMW Training Center, so that those who attend and graduate can go to the mission field immediately without having to repay educational loans first.”
– Robert M. Bland, Founder
The school began as an idea of Teen Missions Founder, Robert M. Bland. So on October 19, 1988, the Florida Free Bible, Missionary, & Work Training Center opened with 18 students.
Teachers are able to give personal attention to the students when there is a specific need, because the classes are small. Emphasis is placed on God’s Word and missions.
Qualified local pastors and teachers, along with lay people, teach on a volunteer basis. Florida Free BMW course of study is comparable to accredited Bible schools. Other Bible colleges and missions organizations also recognize some of the BMW class work.
God’s Word is the sole basis for BMW accreditation. The Bible is the only rule of faith and practice, rather than state or academic regulations, or other outside influence.
