About FBC Gulf Breeze

First Baptist Church started in 1955 with very humble beginnings.  Meeting in homes with just a few people, the vision for starting a new congregation began to take shape.  The congregation grew rapidly over the next couple of decades, as many people moved into the community of Gulf Breeze.  The church today is grateful to those early visioneers that followed God’s leading.

Today, God continues to bless the congregation.  Starting three separate congregations has given the church new ways to reach even more people.  On a given Sunday you will encounter a very diverse group of individuals, but they are all part of the same family.

He is happily married to his lovely wife Shannon and together, they have three kids.  Dinner time is full of laughter at the Spooney house is far from normal; don’t be surprised if you have to duck to avoid being hit by a flying piece of chicken. They recently they discovered they could shoot peas a long distance by launching them from a fork to which Shannon still isn’t happy about. On his days off, you will find Jeff scuba diving, fishing, or hunting with his family. More than anything else, Jeff is passionate about telling God’s story to all who will listen.
