Word of Life Intersect
Intersect is a one-day event at a church or recreation center where we invite students of all ages and families to come and enjoy a day full of fun activities, free food, and most importantly to hear the Gospel of Christ presented in a clear and concise way. Along with the importance of presenting the Gospel, we want to help people, whether from your church, or the community, connect with Word of Life. We want them to see what we are about and that we care deeply not only about sharing the Gospel but also about having a good time. All day we will run activities for all age groups, provide a free lunch and we do this because we believe it helps to break down barriers so that when the Gospel is presented, it goes forth unimpeded.
Our mission is simple, “Reaching youth with the Gospel of Christ.” At Word of Life, camps have been an integral part of our ministry for 65 years. Camps are known for being far from civilization and that is why we have developed a brand new event at Word of Life, called Intersect. Intersects purpose is to bridge the gap between our remote camp properties and the fast-paced, busy life found in an urban setting, or as we like to say, “connecting camp to the city.”
Want to host an Intersect?
We want to partner with you so that together we put on the best possible event and make it a weekend of connection. Whether it’s through our training/setup time Friday night, working the event on Saturday, or participating in a local church on Sunday, our staff and students want to come along side your volunteer staff not only to help run the event but to also make a connection with them. Our goal is that you, your church, and the other churches involved would come to love Word of Life and partner with us in the future, not because of who we are, but because of who we represent, Christ.

• Event Staff- Event Director, Activities Director, a Food Service Director, and a Volunteer Staff Director. Also a team of Bible Institute students to help and rub shoulders with your volunteers.

Reverse Dunk Team
Reverse is a high flying trampoline stunt and dunk team made up of Word of Life Bible Institute students. These young men use their skills to perform some amazing tricks and dunks while jumping off of a trampoline. We take this team into public schools and present an anti-bullying assembly to the students using a combination of speaking, trampoline stunts, and crowd involvement. Our athletes throw alley-oops, jump over students and teachers, and perform some crazy dunks as they deliver this amazing assembly to the students and faculty. Reverse also performs at Intersect and other church events.
ONE Mission Camps
Do you want to reach the world for Christ? …How about your community? Do you believe God can meet people right where they are?…even on a basketball court, a soccer field, or at a camp? Do you believe the body of Christ could do more to share the love of Jesus if we all work together? We do! This is where ONE mission camps come into play. Our goal is to unite the local church body with mission teams to impact their community using a week-long day camp. Using a combination of sports, music, arts and crafts, and fun activities, we take our teams into local communities and run a week-long action packed camp with the goal of sharing the love of Jesus with the families involved. It has been a great way to connect churches with families in their communities.
