An Environment for Eternally Impacting Students

Introduction

It’s here, in the Adirondacks of upstate New York, that so many people have experienced God firsthand through Word of Life’s ministries. And we’re ready to see this ministry grow even more. Starting May, 2015 and finishing Fall 2016, we’re working with our partners to do just that, with the construction of the state of the art Bollback Student Life Center. As construction progresses, catch the latest updates and photos as we keep you up to date on the work God is doing on the Word of Life campus.

Q: What is the purpose of a new building?
A: The vision is to create an environment for discipleship and evangelism that will eternally impact students and campers alike.

 

Q: Why do we need more buildings?
A: The current dining room only holds 225 students. Not including camps, we have 500+ people eating in that small space. What’s the solution? A 40,000 square ft building with a dining room that fits 650+ people.

 

Q: How will this affect campus life?​
A: The mail room, dining area, bookstore, student services, and community spaces will all be in one centralized location, allowing us to more effectively serve our students.

 

Q: What goals will this construction achieve?
A: Our main objective is to increase the student body to 800, but this building will also help us significantly upgrade the camping experience.
