Our Philosophy

Word of Life’s Student Ministry Program is built on a simple philosophy: reaching youth whose culture is constantly changing with the biblical truth that never changes. Our goal is to equip you as the local church to evangelize and disciple students each and every week.


Creative Discipleship

“Discipline yourself for the purpose of godliness.”

1 Tim. 4:7b


Creative Discipleship is designed to reward your students as they develop habits of spiritual growth to strengthen their relationship with Christ. As students make progress throughout the year, they receive points towards awards and scholarships. The incentives encourage movement to develop spiritual habits while the Spirit of God grows their desire for a deepening relationship with Jesus. Creative Discipleship focuses student involvement in seven key areas of growth.


If a student earns 500 points in the Creative Discipleship program within a ministry year, (June 1 – May 31st) that student will earn the several scholarships available for Word of Life Camps and the Bible Institute.
