The Bridge: September 15, 2023

A Note from Brian  The new year is off to a great start at our Florida and New York campuses. The energy and excitement on both campuses is tremendous. We are praying for your student as they adjust to classes and the schedule here at Word of Life.   We finished reading through Colossians in our quiet time last week, where I was reminded in chapter three to set our minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth. This will be a great year of growth and change for all of us here at WOLBI!  Latest News  New York  Our sports teams have an awesome opportunity to share their testimonies with the opposing team. We had a great welcome for our sports teams and student leadership on September 1, and our soccer teams had a scrimmage on September 4. As a result of this, we saw …

The Bridge: Sep 1, 2023

A Note from Brian  It is hard to believe another school year is upon us. We have been praying and preparing for your student to be here this fall, and I believe this will be an incredible year in their life. While we cannot manufacture spiritual growth, we can create an environment for growth and ask God to bring it about. Your student’s time in the classroom, experience in ministry, and relationships with faculty, staff, and one another will be extensive. We are here to support them (and you) through this process and watch to see what the Lord does. If there is anything we can do to help, please let us know. Check out Ephesians 3:20-21 as an encouragement from the Lord!      Welcome to The Bridge: Word of Life Bible Institute’s Parent Communication Blog  You may be aware that Word of Life has two Bible Institutes in the states. …

A Note from Brian  This time of year brings several huge milestones in your student’s journey. Our entire student body just returned from either Open Air Evangelism (freshman class) or Missions Reality (sophomore class). I have been blessed by hearing how the Lord worked in and through them on these trips. Also, the academic part of the school year is almost over. I know you are proud of your student and the hard work they have put into this year. I pray they have not just obtained knowledge but have experienced the true heart transformation that only comes through God and His Word.   I cannot wait to see how the Lord uses your student during their summer ministry. Enjoy your time with them on their upcoming break.    Open Air Evangelism Review  Open Air Evangelism in New York City was a huge success. Our students arrived on Wednesday evening (4/26) and …

The Bridge: April 28, 2023 

A Note from Brian  For more than seventy years, Word of Life has placed an emphasis on missions. Our recent Missions Conference allowed us to share this focus with our students. Their response was incredible. God doesn’t call everyone to go, but we believe He does call all of us to be involved in reaching the world. This happens through prayer, giving, and going. The conference was also a great launching point for their own mission trips.  Currently, our students are wrapping up Open Air Evangelism in New York City (freshman class) and multiple Missions Reality trips around the world (sophomore class). They will be home in a few weeks and can tell you about it! We encourage you to ask them about what God did on their trip, the opportunities to share the gospel, and the life change they experienced by sharing it with others!  Camp Dates  As you …

The Bridge: April 14, 2023

A Note from Brian  April is an exciting month at the Bible Institute, as our focus is on global missions and preparing for ministry trips. This weekend (April 14–16) is our New York Missions Conference, where students will be challenged to pray through their part in taking the gospel to the world. In less than a week, our sophomore students head out on Missions Reality trips. The week after that, our freshman students go to New York City for Open Air Evangelism. Please pray for your student, as this is one more opportunity for them to take what they are learning in the classroom and put it into practice. As you pray, I encourage you to read John 17:6–9, where Jesus prays to the Father for His disciples before He is about to be crucified. He gives us a great model of how we can pray for these students as …
