Brief History of Word of Life
The story of Word of Life starts with the vision of Jack Wyrtzen, who believed, “It is the responsibility of every generation to reach their generation for Christ.”
Jack founded Word of Life Fellowship in 1940 as an outgrowth of a bible Study. Over the next 75 years, Word of Life added camps, conference centers, Bible institutes, and church youth ministries spanning 70 countries. Over 1400+ missionaries continue to reach the next generation for Christ.
Brief History of Word of Life, Nigeria
Word of Life Nigeria began in November 2000 through the desire of Peter and Bette Verkaik to reach the Fulani people with the gospel of Jesus Christ. Since that time several exciting things have been happening in this country and ministry.
This opened doors for the Word of Life Bible clubs, Open Air and Discipleship Training Center and Leadership Development Training.
In 2007, the drama ministry of Born Again to a Living Hope started. A team of 5 Argentines came to train our team in Jos, Nigeria. Our very first drama was performed at Jos Evangelical Theological Seminary auditorium. The ministry grew very quickly and the drama was performed in hundreds of high schools (public, Christian and Muslim) in Central Nigeria.
In the first 5 years of the Ministry, more than 50,000 young people accepted Christ as their Savior. From 2000 until date, Word of Life Nigeria grew from a ministry to the Fulani people to Youth of Nigeria and West Africa through open-air evangelistic outreaches, Bible Clubs in many churches, Discipleship Training, Gospel Production, Leadership Development, Coaching, Camps and Volunteering ministry. The Lord has blessed and is continuing to preserve this ministry for His honor and glory.
