Be Used By God to Change Lives

It’s only because of the people of God that our ministry exists. Normal people from all walks of life with every skill you can think of volunteer to help make our ministry happen. Because we value our volunteers we provide housing and meals at no charge to those volunteering on Word of Life property.

Will you join an army of other laborers graciously giving their time for the glory of God?

Community & Fellowship

There is nothing like joining others just like you who want to make a difference for the Glory of God. There is a spiritual energy in using your gifts for the sake of the Gospel.

Youth Work Retreats

Are you looking for an affordable way to take your youth group to a new level? Your teens can experience it all: 2-3 days working at Word of Life New York in a maintenance ministry setting, 2-3 days of Open Air Evangelism in a metropolitan setting such as New York City, and much more. We can customize your trip to accomplish any objectives you may have for your youth group. Your only other expenses are transportation and meals before arrival and after departure from Word of Life.

For this opportunity there is a $200 per participant fee to cover the cost of transportation, meals, and housing in New York City. There is no cost for meals and housing at the Bible Institute.

Summer Camp Helpers

Custom Work Retreats

Word of Life utilizes teens and college age individuals, as well as some teachers and retirees each summer to accomplish a myriad of service-related tasks. We also have a great need for registered nurses to work at our camp properties. Enjoy the adventure of summer camp, fellowship and discipleship with your peers and Word of Life’s trained staff. Come with a servant’s heart and your life will never be the same.
