Your Gifts Make a Difference . . . One Life at a Time!


Ministry Description

Since the day of Jack Wrytzen's salvation, God gave him a hunger for the Word and a burden for people to know Christ. Through Jack's contagious passion for life and truth, God allowed him to share the message of salvation literally around the world. This same passion continues today through the ministry of Word of Life.

Country Description

Like no other time in history, young people in America are looking for real answers to life’s questions. They want to know truth, not just trends and traditions. Word of Life is all about communicating truth… Biblical Truth. The challenge we have embraced is to “Reach youth, whose culture constantly changes, with the TRUTH that never changes."

Florida Fall Festival

As a ministry team leader, I always get excited when one of my team members steps up to take the initiative in a certain circumstance to really get involved with whatever we are doing that day.

Our Labor is Not in Vain

I visited Bethel Baptist in Monetta SC, on Sunday September 27, 2015. I was excited to learn that 15 children have made a profession in Christ in the last 3 months.

The Pastor's Daughter

A girl came to Word of Life Island for week 7. Her counselor said she was rebellious, angry and a partyer. She knew the Gospel but wanted no part of it. On Wednesday night during the campfire she began to cry and cried the entire time and was the first one up to put her stick in the fire. She told ... read more

Olivia's Story

Olivia came to camp unsaved and talked to her counselor about salvation all week. Her major hurdle was that she couldn't believe that a loving God would actually allow people to go to hell. Her counselors dialogued with her all week and the talks were calm and thoughtful ones, but Olivia wouldn't ... read more

Silva's Journey
