By the mid-2000s, students were taking part in ministry across the United States through Local Church Ministries (now Word of Life Youth Ministries) and around the world.

Music ministries – always an important part of Bible Institute history – grew to include more ensembles, a larger pep band, ladies’ and men’s trios and quartets, and, of course, the Collegians continued their ministry across the U.S. A new Easter production, Jesus: Behold the Man , premiered in 2006, and proved to be an incredible evangelistic tool.

Also in 2006, 90 Florida Bible Institute students traveled to Louisiana for three weeks to offer aid to those affected by Hurricane Katrina. The students were able to make a profound physical and spiritual impact in Louisiana. The Florida Bible Institute now sends students to minister in foreign countries during spring break, providing physical and spiritual encouragement to those in need.

In 2007, the Ryrie Library and Study Center opened in New York. The library honors the memory of Dr. Charles Ryrie, an accomplished biblical scholar and adjunct professor at the Bible Institute. The Ryrie Library and Study Center provides students with a wealth of resources during their time at WOLBI. More ministries and sports, including a Crisis Pregnancy Center and a Cross Country Team, were added toward the end of the 2000s.
