The Experience Magazine - Fall 2017


Lauren is in 7th grade and Addison is in 4th grade. Cathy and I are both 1994 graduates of the Word of Life Bible Institute, and we echo the testimony of so many alumni, “It was the best year of our lives”. We are grateful to see our children excited about the BI, and they love spending time with students. This picture is of Cathy and me at Opening Weekend 1993. Neither of us knew anything about Word of Life before attending – so, yes, the look of “what are we getting into” was legit. There is a lot of excitement on campus with changes in numerous areas. Can you share some of the changes? Yes, there is a lot happening on the campus, and we are exceedingly grateful for God’s provision of resources. Recently we made the decision to combine our Youth and Family Camps and Operational areas with the Word of Life Bible Institute for the purpose of synergy and creating a dynamic year-round experience for students. As you can imagine, having our camps and operational teams on the campus creates an enthusiastic atmosphere. Construction was just finished on a brand new Enrollment, Financial Aid and Customer Care Office, now located under Italy Dorm. The Student Life deans have moved into the old Financial Aid/Enrollment office, and renovations continue in that space. The Administration building has been totally remodeled, and one of the dorms on Kenya Hill is also in the process of being remodeled.
