The Experience Magazine - Fall 2017

Roger, there is a rumor out there that you are passionate about sports. What is happening now with our Sports program? Word of Life Bible Institute has for many years had a Sports program. It is my belief that sports are an important part of our ministry core and campus experience. It is my desire to see our Sports program develop in our competitiveness and become a model of excellence in athletics and ministry. Our sports teams use the platform of male and female soccer and basketball and female volleyball to share the Gospel with opposing teams. I challenge our sports teams to regularly see their platform as a catalyst to Gospel conversations. I am also a firm believer in playing with excellence so you have earned the right to be heard. This year we have placed a lot of energy on our Sports program…investing in our soccer field, new scoreboard, bleachers and player shelters. Our men’s soccer team had the opportunity to be coached by a professional player, Omar Catalan.

You can read about him by visiting this link: wordoflife. edu/2017/10/05/omar-catalan-using-soccer-reach-world/ . We want all of our sporting competitions to be an event on campus. An opposing coach shared with me,

How can we pray for you and the team of faithful servants at WOrd of life bible institute? How can our alumni, family and friends get involved and help the Bible Institute grow and expand? I use the statement often here - “For God’s glory, our good and the joy of others”. Pray that we glorify God in all we do. We desire to see every student have an incredible experience studying the Word, applying the Word and sharing the Word. As an alumnus, your influence on potential students is one of our most successful recruitment initiatives. Every week I hear stories from our current students speaking of the investment of a Word of Life Bible Institute alumnus in their lives. As an alumnus you are able to award an applying student with a $500 Alumni Scholarship. Please contact an Enrollment Representative at admissions@wol. org for more information. We are here to serve you as you serve potential students. As an alumnus, I would invite you to come and check out the campus, take a tour and come up to the office and have a cup of coffee with me. I would love to hear about your experience, how we can serve you better and hopefully be an encouragement to you. We have a remodeled Lakeside cabin for campus visitors and alumni for the purpose of campus tours and visits. We do not charge for these visits and space is limited, so plan in advance for your visit. You may schedule a visit by emailing my assistant, Debbie Wallace at debbiewallace@ .

Our mascot and team name is Word of Life Bible Institute Huskies, and for the first time in our history we have our very own logo and mascot. We are in the process of planning and praying about adding additional Sports programs in the near future.
