I loved walking through campus as the snow started to fall and listening to Christine Wyrtzen’s songs on the loudspeaker. (Yes, there was a campus-wide PA system back in the day!) Karen (Fry ’80) Singer

1980 saw the inception of our Open Air Evangelism program, which featured two teams that went out to witness on alternating weekends. Church ministry also expanded to encompass nearly 20 churches. In 1981, WOLBI began its second-year program, then called the School of Youth Ministries (SYM), which focused on the application of Bible knowledge to practical life and ministry. Second year has continued to be a huge blessing to students in the years since its inception. In 1983, the Bible Institute had its first excursion to Israel. Over the years, the Israel trip has become a treasured part of the Bible Institute experience for those who attend. Our main tenets, “Know, Grow, Show,” were introduced in 1984. These tenets stand firm today, and are put into application with our practical “Study, Life, Ministry” model. The early ‘80s brought quite a bit of change to the world... and the Bible Institute, as well!
