Christians, imagine what would happen if we could turn around the ailing churches in our nation and bring them to health and restore their vital gospel witness in our neighborhoods! God is doing just that in Seffner, Florida. God is turning around a church that had long been in decline, and while we're making tremendous progress, we're not there yet, and we can use your help.

We are Bible Baptist Church of Seffner, though we brand ourselves as “BBC Seffner: The iFour Church.” What is “iFour”? It is our ministry and disciple-making strategy: Invite, Illuminate, Inspire, and Impact.
While our goal has long been to reach the unreached and make new Christians in our neighborhood, we need a few hard-working people who are already Christians to help us gain some forward momentum! In particular, we need help in children’s and youth ministry (background check required for working with minors), multimedia, addiction recovery, worship music, small group leadership, outreach, and greeting & hospitality. Truth be told, even a few people to sit in the seats is a help! We can also use the help of people who are handy at remodeling and repair of buildings and facilities!
Church revitalization is really the front line of ministry and it is not always easy. But you would be making a big difference. If you want to be entertained, or you want to sit there and just take it all in, this is not the volunteer opportunity for you. We believe it's very exciting seeing a church that was once dying coming back to life!
We also realize that most practicing Christians already have a church. If you don’t, we’d love to have you. If you DO belong to a local church, we don’t want to steal you from them…we would ask you to make a six-month commitment for Sunday mornings only.
We are Baptist in faith and practice, though we do not belong to a Baptist denomination. Though we recognize Bible-believing Christians can and do disagree on secondary teachings. For instance, while we accept that there are differing views on whether miraculous gifts are still active, and we know our sovereign God can do what he wants, we do not practice “tongues-speaking” or healings in our worship services. We’ll be happy to send you a complete doctrinal statement by email, if you are interested. Those who teach would need to be in essential agreement with our doctrinal statement.
To be clear, this are volunteer positions for people looking to help rebuild a church. We are unable to pay at this time (even our pastor works another job). Contact us, or visit us on Sunday mornings (discipleship hour is at (9:45 a.m., while worship begins at 11 a.m. Music practice starts at 9 a.m. … our style is a lively “multi-generational” style, which is a mix of newer Christian music and hymns that have been spiced up a little). We are at 401 W. U.S. Highway 92, Seffner, FL 33592. The church phone is show contact info
