MFBA is a Retreat and Conference Center serving Christian groups since 1955

We rent our facilities out to our Owning CHurches, other Christian Groups, and various other groups.

MFBA is designed to be a rental only facility with a small staff, with no food service ( you cook and clean ) but special arrangements can be made. We rent to groups only!! (MFBA does not currently take reservations from individual campers, although we may be able to put you in contact with one of our Camps)

MFBA is open from January 1 until December 15.

Our Values

Middle Florida Baptist Assembly, although not owned by the Florida Baptist Convention, works in harmony with and cooperates with the program of the Florida Baptist State Convention and the Southern Baptist Convention.


MFBA is available for rental on a first come, first served basis (some restrictions may apply). For further information and reservation policies , please contact us.

Area Attractions

Located on beautiful Pickett Lake in Lafayette County, Florida and in close proximity to the Suwannee River, Ichetucknee River, Santa Fe River, and the numerous springs that feed these rivers, MFBA is in a prime location to get your group “Away From The World” without going “A World Away”.

Our Commitment

Middle Florida Baptist Assembly is committed to providing the best possible facilities at the lowest cost possible for use by Christian groups, to assist them in developing, training and equipping God’s people for Christian Ministry.
