us together, but He called us both into full-time ministry. Greg ’00 and Kara (Blackledge ’00) Daley

The early 2000s brought about some incredible new opportunities for Word of Life students, including opportunities for the Collegians to travel to the Florida Bible Institute and study alongside the students there while performing one of Word of Life’s most beloved productions, Sights and Sounds of Christmas.

At Word of Life Florida, classes grew and new ministries developed throughout the early 2000s; our New York campus also hosted new ministries both on and off campus. In 2001, construction began on the Jack Wyrtzen Center (now The Wyrtzen Center) on our New York campus, where first year students would study in a more academic environment. The construction of The Wyrtzen Center also allowed the second year students to move into Council Hall from the Pottersville Headquarters building (no longer owned by Word of Life). The Wyrtzen Center opened for classes in the fall of 2004. In 2001, the George Theis Assembly Center (now the Theis Assembly Center), a state-of-the-art classroom environment, was built on our Florida campus. The Theis Assembly Center is an incredible blessing to both the Bible Institute and camps.
