Graceville Historical Events

Late 1940's
Frank Faris and the Baptist College of Florida
At the end of World War I, an enlisted U.S. Army pilot named Frank Faris settled, I believe, in Arcadia, where he taught flying at Carlstrom and Dorr Airfield. He was converted to Christianity by a visiting revivalist, and became ultimately a preacher. He was for several years Associational Missionary of the South Florida Baptist Association, based in Lakeland. He was the founding spirit and co-founder of the Baptist Bible Institute in 1943. This school, at first, was sponsored by the association, moved to Graceville (northwest Florida, Jackson County) in 1953 and 1954, was taken over by the Florida Baptist Convention in 1957. Today it is known as the Baptist College of Florida, and it is making moves to become the only university supported by the Florida Baptist Convention (Stetson University's support by this convention was discontinued some years ago).
