The Bridge: September 16th

  We are off to a great start on our New York and Florida campuses! Everyone is healthy and safe, and I am so proud of how the students are serving and preferring one another. Thank you for your support and encouragement during this unique time of preparing this generation to reach their generation with the gospel of Jesus Christ. I hope the following updates are an encouragement to you!   Graduation and Columbus Day Weekend Events : As we have continued to monitor the COVID-19 pandemic and New York State guidelines, we have made the difficult decision to delay all Columbus Day weekend events, including graduation. As a parent, I understand the importance and emotion of being physically present at your child’s important milestones. Our hope is that in delaying our graduation ceremony, as many parents and guardians as possible will be able to attend. We will celebrate graduation for both the 2019-2020 and 2020-2021 classes on August 14, 2021.  Originally, the grand opening and dedication of the new Huskies Health and Athletic Center was planned for Columbus Day Weekend, along with a special alumni reunion. We will now hold the grand opening and dedication during our Founders Bible Conference,… Continue Reading

The Bridge: Fall Opening 2020

We are excited to begin another year at Word of Life Bible Institute! Things may look a little different than they usually do, but we continue to remain dedicated to the spiritual, emotional, and physical care of our students at the Bible Institute. Academics: Incoming freshmen students should have received a letter from Dr. Weaver (Academic Dean). In that letter, they were informed about several essential items: 1) Logos Bible Software; 2) Canvas learning management system, 3) Office 360, and 4) our Respondus Lock-Down Browser. The best thing your student can do to ensure that they are well prepared for the beginning of the academic semester is to consult that letter and follow the detailed directions to download the necessary items before their arrival on campus. If they have not received that letter or it was lost, they can contact us at academics@wol.org for an electronic version. If your student still does not have a computer and is trying to figure out what to do, visit www.wordoflife.edu/logos for some suggestions and other helpful information. They need to have an electronic device that allows them to download Logos and utilize Canvas. We have sent out course syllabi for students who have… Continue Reading

Word of Life Florida Campus Update

It is with a heavy heart that we have made the decision to close our Florida Youth Camp, effective immediately. We are also cancelling the remaining weeks of camp out of an abundance of care and concern. Recognizing that we have a responsibility to each camper and their families, our staff and students, and to the community at large, we believe this is the best decision for all involved. Recently, we were made aware of two additional staff members testing positive with COVID-19, which brings our total to four staff for the summer testing positive. We have followed our health and safety protocols and all staff were isolated upon any signs of sickness. We believe it is best to shut down to prevent any further spread of illness.   We are asking that all campers be picked up no later than 11am on Tuesday, July 14. We understand that your time and schedule are important to you, and we will make every effort to support a time that suits you. We also understand that your student’s health is of utmost importance to you, as it is for us as well. With this in mind, if you decide in the coming days… Continue Reading
