We’re continuing with our Life Change Scholarship Incentive! Countless lives- including yours- have been changed at Word of Life Camps and Bible Institute. 100% of donations to these funds is used to bring needy young people to camp. Join us in reaching young people with the gospel of Jesus Christ– because the gospel still works.
Life Change Camper Fund
Each summer more than 10,000 kids hear the good news of Jesus Christ and are encouraged to grow in their walk with the Lord at Word of Life Camps. This Word of Life ministry touches the lives of young people in eternal ways. Through the financial assistance of friends like you, 1,814 young people received a scholarship to attend last year in New York and Florida!
Life Change Student Fund
More than 20,000 graduates have experienced Word of Life Bible Institute– receiving an incredible, biblical framework for life. Students are immersed in God’s Word every day and then have the opportunity to be involved immediately in a local church ministry, youth camp, community outreach, sports or music team and open air evangelism. Simply put, students learn the Word and live it out! Even though the cost of the Bible Institute is less than half of many colleges, most students are still in need of financial assistance. Of last year’s student body, 92% received assistance!
Olivia Franklin, FL First Year Student:
I grew up as a pastor’s kid in a good Christian home– we were in church every time the doors were open. As a kid, I learned all the right answers, and I thought that was enough. However, when I was 6 years old, I attended Word of Life Florida Youth Camp. I remember on Monday night, Rich Andrews was giving the salvation message. I had heard this story a thousand times, but for some reason, I heard it differently this time. Near the end of his message, Mr. Rich said; “Knowing all the right answers is great, but it doesn’t mean anything if you don’t have a personal relationship with Christ”. That was the moment I realized I needed to be saved. The instant the message was over, I practically ran to the front. That night I gave my life to Christ and it is a night I will never forget.
Caleb Auli, NY Second Year Student:
I loved being a Word of Life Camp counselor because every week God was doing something new. One of the most memorable moments for me was during junior week– when one of my campers told me I was his closest friend, and that he didn’t want to go back home because of the stuff he dealt with there. It still burdens me to this day, and I’m glad God gave me the opportunity to speak with that camper and remind him of truth… and let him know that we will always be friends!
Timothy Bordon, NY Second Year Student:
I went to the Word of Life Florida Youth Camp as a camper in the summer of 2017, with the intention of seeing old friends… and possibly talking to a girl. On Wednesday, they had a promotion for the Bible Institute. My brother had attended the BI in 2016, but the thought of attending never really crossed my mind. However, after that meeting, I decided to spend a year of my life studying God’s Word at the Bible Institute. Thanks to such a simple presentation, my life has been dramatically changed by a year of studying and living out God’s Word in my everyday life. I learned and grew so much last year at the WOLBI Florida campus that I decided to attend the Second Year program in Schroon Lake. I’m so thankful for Word of Life Camps, because God used them to impact my life dramatically!
Whether it’s during a week at camp or a year at the Bible Institute, life change happens here. Join us as we continue to share the gospel with students from across the globe. Click the link below to donate to Word of Life’s Life Change Scholarships!
