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. As a central training ground for the next generation of Preparing men & Women for Ministry, the Steven R. Sylvester Memorial Library is the “heart of the institution.” South Florida Bible College received a donation from the Harcourt M. and Virginia W. Sylvester Foundation in honor of Steven R. Sylvester. The library will usher in a new era of academic excellence and spiritual strength for students, faculty, staff, and the community.

“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
