Ministries are a central part of our learning environment, where you will be able to serve others while you earn credits. We are not just a Bible School with student ministry opportunities, Word of Life is a global youth ministry. Check out all the different ministries you can be involved in both here and around the world!

Ministry Opportunities
We are accredited by the Transnational Association of Christian Colleges and Schools, an institutional accrediting body, so our credits will transfer to most Christian universities and colleges. Contact Rebecca for more information on current transfer agreements.

 Part of our passion in reaching Canada is to prepare university students to know their faith, defend their faith, and reach others with the gospel throughout your university career. WOLBI doesn’t just prepare you for school, it prepares you for life, no matter what career you end up in.
