Steven R. Sylvester Memorial Library

Our library is named in honor of Steven R. Sylvester, a former student of the Bible College. Steven was enrolled at SFBC from 1996 until his untimely death in 2000. The President, along with our Board of Directors, wanted to honor Steven and dedicate the library in his memory.

“You are born into this world innocent and protected
always wanted and never neglected
as the Lord intended His children to be.
What a wondrous system this is and who else could make it so,
but He, our Father God.”
-Steve Sylvester
