March 1933 – May 2020


Our dear friend and co-laborer, Paul Bubar, went Home to be with his Lord on May 16, 2020. He, along with his wife, Shirley, served with Word of Life Fellowship for almost 60 years. Growing up the son of an Independent Baptist preacher, Paul began ministry by planting the Northfield Baptist Church in Northfield, Massachusetts, the hometown of Evangelist D.L. Moody. He officially started his pastorate there in 1955. Sensing God’s call to devote his life ministering to today’s youth, he left the pastorate in 1959 to join the Word of Life team and pioneered the Bible Club ministry that today serves local churches worldwide. Paul directed the Word of Life Island in the 1970s, where thousands of teens came and many received Christ as Savior. In 1987, he was appointed the Director of Word of Life’s International Ministries Division. Under his capable and creative leadership, the ministry grew from 26 to 44 international fields. In 1998, Paul assumed the role of General Manager of the Word of Life Inn and Conference Center. Until recently, Paul joyfully served as a ministry representative and engaged in evangelism and encouraged local church pastors and business owners. During his years living in the Schroon Lake area, he loved and served his local church and community. He and Shirley were married 57 years, and God blessed them with four children, three of whom are serving the Lord and one who went to Heaven in 1996 while serving as a missionary with Word of Life Hungary. Paul has left an indelible mark on the entire ministry of Word of Life... and all our lives. What an outstanding example of faithfulness and enthusiasm in serving Christ. Imagine the sheer joy he experienced as he stepped onto heaven’s shores and heard Jesus say, “Well done, good and faithful servant!” The entire Bubar family appreciates your prayers. On Friday, October 9, at 6:30 PM, a memorial service will take place at the Jack Wyrtzen Center in Pottersville, New York.
