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.
