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."

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.
