A Message from the Association

The Tampa Bay Baptist Conference Center has been a ministry of the Tampa Bay Baptist Association for over sixty years. During this time God has provided the Conference Center as a tool that churches have used for training seminars, youth and children's camps, retreats, and banquets. Through these special events God has transformed countless lives and has blessed the local churches and their ministries.

Many people have shared over the years how God has empowered their lives thru the events taken place at the Conference Center. There are many personal testimonies of those who have made decisions of salvation, or surrendered their life to the gospel ministry. Others have rededicated their life and made commitments to the Lord.
The Conference Center provides a beautiful peaceful setting for all church events at a reasonable price.
