I had the privilege to grow up in a Christian home and came to know the Lord at a young age. After high school, I went on to Clearwater Christian College where the Lord allowed me to grow and develop in my relationship with Him. After college, I came to Word of Life Florida to work for a couple of years before meeting my husband and living in Indiana for several years before the Lord brought our family back to Florida. I now serve as the Admissions and Recruitment Manager for both Bible Institutes and am so thankful for the ministry God has given me here.

Word of Life is a family. I think one thing that sets the Bible Institute apart from other schools is its size, and the ability for staff members and other adults to come alongside and encourage and disciple students in a personal way.

The Lord allowed me to know Him from a young age. This gave a good foundation of knowing that even when we don’t think or feel that He is near, He is ALWAYS faithful, and my circumstances and current situations are working together to bring me closer to Him. My husband and I have 3 kids and we both serve with Word of Life in Florida. I have a deep calling to serve the International student community because I was one many years ago and feel that I have a special connection to them and can better relate to their needs.

Word of Life is a unique place where the students not only do life & academics together but ministry as well. This is the perfect soil for long-lasting deep friendships and accountability. As Staff we strive to make you feel at home, help you in your daily walk by discipleship and informal gatherings in our homes. We value true heart-change that lasts. Our school year ends after summer ministry, which is (in most cases) summer camp for kids or families on one of our own WOL properties. This allows our students to put into practice what they learned all year. Come join us!
