Welcome Word of Life Bible Institute Alumni!

Hello, alumni! My name is Mike Bush and I am the newly appointed Director of Alumni. Prior to working with the Alumni Department my wife Amy and I had the honor of serving at the Word of Life Inn since September 2000. That ministry has been one of the most rewarding things Amy and I have ever done. We’ve seen God at work, changing the hearts and lives of children, teens, adults, and families from all over the world.

We look forward to these exciting new changes, and how we continue to extend the reach of the Bible Institute by connecting former students and finding new ones. Please be in prayer as we make these changes, and we look forward to continuing the work God has done.
