Changed lives. This is what the ministry of Word of Life is all about. The ministry is focused on reaching young people around the world with the Gospel of Jesus Christ and teaching them how to walk with the Lord. This was the vision of our Founders, Jack Wyrtzen and Harry Bollback and after more than 70 years of ministry, it remains the passion of everything we do.
Christian Camps and Conferences – reaching youth and adults through this dynamic ministry is the Word of Life trademark.
Bible Institutes – training young people to find the will of God through studying the Word of God under the teaching of outstanding resident and adjunct professors takes place on six continents around the world.
Local Church Ministries – partnering with churches and helping them to establish foundational truths in the lives of young people, this outreach is effective in helping to disciple today’s youth. Word of Life sponsored evangelistic events are also integrated to help churches reach unsaved youth in their local area.
International Ministries – reproducing the ministry of Word of Life in more than 65 countries, missionary teams use Camps and Conferences, Bible Institutes and Local Church Ministries to touch the lives of millions around the world annually through short term and career missionary service.
The ministry’s commitment to the evangelism and discipleship of youth continues on stronger than ever. We believe we have a responsibility that is best summarized by this statement from Jack Wyrtzen:
“I believe it is the responsibility of every generation to reach their generation with the Gospel of Christ.”
The way we live our lives and the way we minister to others flows from what we believe about God and His Word. Word of Life remains faithful to its long heritage of unwavering commitment to the authority of the Bible, and to the importance of right doctrine as a foundation for ministry as reflected in our Statement of Faith.
