Letter from the President

Many good Christian colleges and universities are available for believers today, but we believe our institution is unique in a particular way. We not only offer quality education but a genuine spiritual experience that is life-changing.

We employ a two-fold approach by providing a quality academic experience and creating a spiritual environment that enhances growth and development. We accomplish this by utilizing the classroom as a learning lab for our students to practice ministry. The practical experience enhances their understanding of God’s call on their lives, along with His enabling gifting and grace. Our goal is to produce graduates who will impact the world for Christ.

Our mission is to help light the fires of revival worldwide in every city, hamlet, and village by empowering our graduates to walk in the power of God. Whether utilizing satellite campuses or online classes, our aim is to bring the light of God’s Word to every dark corner of the globe.

Our beck and call are to anyone whom the Holy Spirit leads to further their knowledge and enhance their spiritual walk. Join us at Word of Life School of Ministry and touch the world for Jesus!

We promise a life-changing experience!

Dr. Carl E. Thompson, Sr., President
