Want to make a difference in the world? At Word of Life, our students practically apply God’s Word to real-life situations. We provide training and opportunity for each student to participate in multiple, meaningful ministry opportunities that will impact real people. Students serve others, grow in their abilities, and share their faith.
God commanded His people to be doers of the Word and not hearers only (James 1:22). Every believer is called to faithfully serve God by diligently serving others. Therefore, the Bible Institute seeks to nurture within students a passion for Christian ministry and strives to equip them to reach today’s society for Christ by involving them in meaningful ministry to others.
Our training goes beyond the classroom to real-life situations where people are in desperate need of the gospel.
We strive to provide every student with the following opportunities:
Share Your Faith. In direct obedience to Christ’s command to make disciples of all nations (Matthew 28:19), every student is trained in effective evangelism strategies. They are given opportunity to share their faith in relevant and meaningful ways.
Grow in Your Gifts. Students recognize their God-give talents and abilities (James 1:17) and are challenged to develop and refine their skills.
First-hand Experience. Students can say, “I’ve done that!” to a variety of ministry opportunities. These experiences are invaluable building blocks which will bless their home churches and future ministries!
We provide a diverse array of ministry opportunities relevant to the needs of today’s culture.
Jesus commanded his disciples to make disciples of all nations (Matthew 28:19) and to take the gospel to the ends of the earth (Acts 1:8). At Word of Life, we firmly believe God desires everyone to be active in world missions. Whether you are going or sending, you will be exposed to the needs of missions and practical steps to follow God’s calling on your life.
Near the end of the Fall semester (mid-January), several days are devoted to a special missions emphasis. Special chapels, as well as personal interaction with Canadian missionaries, provides valuable insight and motivation.
These few days provide indispensable information for students considering missions and very often dramatically changes the direction of a student’s life.
