My time at WOLBI was one of the greatest experiences of my entire life. It put me on a trajectory I haven’t departed from – one that’s only resulted in greater joy and fruitfulness in my life. I praise God almost every day for my two years at the Bible Institute and pray regularly for WOL’s global flourishing. Tim Raymond ’98

1999 Joe Jordan becomes Executive Director of Word of Life Fellowship

In 1997, Word of Life Bible Institute became accredited through the Transnational Association of Christian Colleges and Schools (TRACS).

Prior to its inception as a Bible Institute campus, our Hudson location functioned as a Bible Conference and Resort Center and Youth Camp (now The Coast). These ministries are now a vibrant part of student life at the Florida Bible Institute campus. Rich Andrews, an alumnus and longtime staff member at Word of Life, serves as the Vice President and Director of Word of Life Florida. The campus provides an incredible experience for its students, who study the same classes under the same first-rate professors as their counterparts in New York. The Florida BI campus also has a unique set of ministries and activities that students can participate in. Attendance in Florida averages about 150 students per year, many of whom continue their studies in second year at our New York campus. In 1997, we opened a second U.S. Bible Institute campus in Hudson, Florida.
