Word of Life Canada - Bible Institute
We offer a fully accredited biblical studies program. Not only do we want you to know the Word of God, but we want you to apply it and have a growing relationship with Jesus Christ. Our Bible School prepares young adults to share their faith and stand firm for the Lord wherever they may be.
Word of Life Canada - Summer Camps
Word of Life kids camp and teen camp programs uniquely combine the elements of adventure, intensity, friendship, and Christian instruction making them a favourite with young people and families. At Word of Life, kids and teens hear the Gospel in our summer and winter camps, many for the first time.
We organize different events and activities that aim to proclaim the Gospel in a relevant and dynamic way. Our vision is to partner with churches and youth groups by offering them resources and expertise at the child and teen level.
I just wanted to write and thank you for your ministry and sensitivity to the Holy Spirit. Many years ago you came to my Church and spoke…The message you spoke changed my life as I learned so much about God’s love and forgiveness.

Back-story: I grew up i a very dysfunctional family of divorce, anger, and much confusion. Growing up I was abused…from the ages of 5-14. My parents would not believe me…This grew silence, hatred, loneliness, and depression.The Friday before you came I had written two letters…and had my suicide planned out for the following day. That night…my friend begged me to come to…where the Word of Life group was going to be.

I thank God for bringing my friend into my life and your [ministry] team at that exact time! It was there I learned about how God does not hold me accountable to things that were done to me and how His love and forgiveness is greater than anything I’d ever known! What a weight lifted!  

That weekend I re-dedicated my life to Christ and the following year I went to the Bible Institute and was able to talk with someone about my past…

I just wanted to thank you for your ministry and allowing God to use you to change lives!
