Julia

I loved the community, my roommates, my advisors, my co-workers, my classes, the ministry. The only thing I ever really lacked on was sleep. I got some, but it was a hot commodity. Thankfully I was able to stay awake in class so I learned SO much and was blessed to receive the knowledge I did. Traveling through the old and new testament, specifically studying Ecclesiastes and Proverbs, Hebrews, and Ezra. My heart was filled, daily. With love from people, from God, from classes, from the community. God does amazing things there. God is surely present.

Jacob

If you are looking for a place to study the Word of God, this is the perfect place. While it is not as modern and nice as other schools, the people and overall atmosphere make up for it.

Annna

Being at Word of Life for the past couple of months has played a big role in my faith as a Christian and my desire for missions. Studying God's Word every day in the classroom, being involved in different ministry opportunities, working service assignments, and 'doing life' with all of the other staff and students is such a special, unique opportunity that I highly encourage everyone who is able to take advantage of.

Caleb

The Word of Life Bible Institute is a fantastic place to learn and grow. The staff's primary focus is to help you grow closer to God through a learning environment and discipleship. You learn more about the Bible in class, how to apply it through ministry assignments, and think about it through numerous discipleship opportunities. While it is not a traditional 4-year college (most students only stay for one year out of the possible two), it is a great starting point, preparing you as you head out into a secular and anti-God world. Even better, your credits here will transfer to most other colleges so you will be able to go in as a sophomore. I would highly recommend taking a year (or two!) to go to the Word of Life Bible Institute.

  3. Describe the students at your school.

    The student body here at WOLBI is great! There are a lot of international students; this year, there are students from Korea, Japan, Brazil, The Dominican Republic, Italy, Germany, and I'm probably forgetting a couple. I actually have three roommates who speak fluent Spanish: one from Chile, one whose family are missionaries to Ecuador, and one who is Puerto Rican in background. I love it. The students are really united as a body of believers to furthering the Gospel of Christ.

  6. What is the stereotype of students at your school? Is this stereotype accurate?

    I think one stereotype would be that Christian schools are super strict and don't allow kids to have fun. WOL is not like that at all! We have water tubing, zip lining, rock climbing, snow camp and more! So awesome!
