The Experience Magazine

The Experience is a semi-annual publication of Word of Life. We want to build a community where you can find longtime friends, share testimonies of what God has been doing, encourage others with stories of change, and learn how you, too, can be involved with the mission of Word of Life.

You’ll hear what’s been happening on campus, in the ministry of Word of Life here and around the World. Discover the Alumnus of the year and get great content to challenge you spiritually. Hear from our Executive Director, Don Lough, Jr. and get inside access to Word of Life.

Alumni Giving

Remember when you were a student at the Bible Institute and were wondering how God would provide for your financial needs? I’m guessing you were amazed as God provided . . . perhaps through a scholarship. Will you be a blessing in the life of a current student?
