About the Founders
The purpose of Word of Life School of Ministry is to assist the local church in developing Christian leaders, both men and women, to be used by God for His divine purpose. We believe that this training process should comprise both the teaching of the Word, and the impartation of the anointing, for service.
The school has a current staff of teachers that are knowledgeable, anointed, and seasoned for the purpose of instructing the people of God. They have collectively, over 135 years of experience in preaching and teaching the Word of God.
Word of Life was operated heretofore as a private church school for ten years, 1994 to 2004. In 2015 the Lord led Pastors Carl and Mechelle Thompson to re-establish the school of ministry, with the purpose of primarily educating leaders to impact on the world for the Kingdom of God. Our plan is to transition into an accredited bible college by the year 2017. We do however, feel that our main purpose during this season is not to provide official credentials, as much as quality education and training to men and women of God, who are dedicated to serving Him.
Our school currently offers one and two year certificates in a variety of areas. All classes are presently part of our continuing education program. The number of hours and credits are provided per certificate. Please review our website for a listing of classes and programs available.
We do provide some financial support to students who have a verified need. The extent of support that we are able to provide varies from semester to semester. The interested student should contact the school at the number provided online, by email, or phone for further information.
Classes that we currently offer cannot be transferred to any other institution. While we are in the beginning stages now, we anticipate having articulation agreements with other institutions upon accreditation, so that our classes will be transferrable to other institutions.
We currently do not offer online classes, but anticipate having an offering in the very near future.
As mentioned earlier, we are not affiliated with an accredited program at this time, but do plan on establishing an affiliation with Faith Christian University in the future, which is accredited and offers classes from the associate to the doctoral degree.
Registering for class is quite easy. You can go to our website and register online, set up an appointment with one of our staff and register over the phone, or register in person during the first day of classes.
That’s an excellent question! You can go online to the school website and click on the registration link. It will take you to an application, which you should complete and forward to the school, along with a onetime application fee of $25.00. You should receive an immediate email of confirmation, and an acceptance letter in the mail within two weeks.
Our Bible School admissions policy encourages Open Enrollment and we receive applications for admission, online, at any time during the year. Our admissions committee will review the application and notify the applicant by acceptance letter, upon approval.
