Meet the Staff: Justin Cousins

What should we know about you?

My name is Justin Cousins.  I’m stoked to serve here at the Word of Life Bible Institute.

Share with us your salvation experience.

I accepted Christ as my savior at the age of 5.  I wrestled with why I needed to get saved for a couple of weeks.  But through the counsel of my parents and Christ-loving teachers in the school, I understood that I am a sinner in need of Christ’s forgiveness.

What is your role at the Word of Life Bible Institute?

I have the privilege of serving as the Dean of Men and Men’s Basketball Coach at the Bible Institute.

Share your favorite memory of WOLBI when you were a student or something recently as you served with our students?

One of my favorite memories as a Bible Institute student would have to be working summer camp on the Island.  To be able to put to practice the things I had studied and seen in scripture and then to see God transform lives was a priceless gift.

Can you tell us your life verse and why?

I wouldn’t say that I have a life verse, but one that I have been meditating on recently has been Mark 5:34 which says:

“He said to her, “your faith has made you well. Go in peace and be free from your affliction.”

Its such a beautiful reminder of the simplicity and freedom in the Gospel.

Justin, please share with us your experience serving WOLBI students.

I love to and am excited to serve our students because someone saw it as essential to invest and serve me when I was their age.  We get the privilege to raise the next generation of Jesus following disciple-makers.

If you could speak to a younger you today – what would you say?

“What comes into our minds when we think about God is the most important thing about us.” (A.W. Tozer)
