South Florida Bible College & Theological
Seminary (SFBC&TS) was established in 1985, by its founder and
President, Dr. Joseph Guadagnino.
Dr. Guadagnino wanted to provide a non-denominational institution of higher
learning where men and women could fulfill the call of God
upon their lives. SFBC&TS began as a Bible Institute in 1985,
evolving into a Bible College and Seminary in 1988. The first
graduating class was in June 1990, with eighty (80) graduates.
Dr. Guadagnino, having been in the ministry
for over twenty-five years, brought great insight and
knowledge in how to run a successful ministry.
Bible College & Theological Seminary has been in its current
location since its inception. The facility was originally a
movie theatre, called the "Ultra-Vision Theatres," which was
the ultimate vision for the ministry of South Florida Bible
College & Theological Seminary.
Florida Smart, the State of Florida has:
Ten State Universities
Twenty-eight Community Colleges
Sixty-eight private Colleges & Universities
Only fifteen of the sixty-eight private Colleges and
Universities are Bible Colleges
Only two of the fifteen Bible Colleges are in Broward County
Only one of the Bible colleges in Broward County,
South Florida Bible College &
Theological Seminary, offers all this:
Undergraduate programs in Theology
Graduate programs in Theology
Programs in Theology for
Programs in Theology taught in Portuguese
Programs in Theology on campus or by
A growing international presence
The only other Bible seminary in Broward
County offers graduate-level only
courses, and offers them from a reformed, Presbyterian point
of view, not a non-denominational view.
In the surrounding counties, Dade
and Palm Beach Counties, there are approximately five other Bible
colleges, and three of them are Catholic. Of the other two,
one school only offers courses on the Internet, and thus
cannot accept international students. The other offers a
few undergraduate Bible classes, but no theological degrees.
From this it can be seen that SFBC&TS has a
unique role to play, not only in Broward County, but in all of
South Florida, and the United States. It is the only non-denominational
and seminary that can offer both undergraduate and graduate
degrees to international students.
Through many miraculous interventions from
God, South Florida Bible College & Theological Seminary
began. SFBC&TS continues to experience miracles and
tremendous growth. Please feel free to
