New Life Thrift Store

This is our newest ministry which was created to raise funds for the New Life Dream Centers, a 12-month program for men and women seeking freedom from drug and alcohol addiction, emotional issues and crime. The New Life Thrift Store is located at 2150 Collier Avenue on the corner of Broadway, on the Word Of Life Ministries campus. We are always in need of shoppers and those able to donate their gently used items. To donate to NLDC directly, click here.

Life Groups logo

Life Groups

Life Groups provide a place where we can connect and grow together in our Christian walk and be encouraged to live “on earth as it is in heaven”. Each group, usually comprised of 8 to 12 members, maintains an atmosphere charged with unconditional love and unity. Life Groups are a great place to receive encouragement, nurturing, accountability and individual celebration!

Call 239.274.8881 for more information on available groups.


Kairos University logo

Kairos University

Kairos University makes higher education highly accessible by equipping members of the Body of Christ with practical training for individual edification or a 4-year degree. We at Kairos University believe that this is the time and the generation that will rise up and fulfill the Word of God in Ephesians 4:11-12: “And He gave some, apostles, and some, prophets, and some evangelists and some pastors and teachers; for the perfection of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the Body of Christ.”
Our vision and commitment is to bring together the elements that will mature the body of Christ for the work of the ministry and to create an environment where there would be opportunities to relate theories and knowledge to practical training. Read more at

Awaken Youth Ministry

These are difficult times, especially for kids and teens. The accepted standards in our society go against all it means to be Christian, and our young people are the most affected. Our youth group is a place where young people get re-charged, encouraged, have fun, develop friendships with those who share their beliefs and learn to minister to God and others. It’s a place for real kids, with real problems, looking for real answers. If you are aged 12-17, then check us out Wednesdays & Fridays at 7:00 pm!

Wednesdays & Fridays at 7pm


Kids Super Church

The purpose of Kids’ Super Church is to introduce children to God and strengthen their relationships with their parents, other children and their leaders. A typical Sunday morning begins with an opening ceremony and then the children disperse in their small groups which are led by their own adult or teen leader. This program provides versatility, movement, friendship, growth, and fun! Our experienced staff consists of ministry leaders of Word Of Life who have long-time experience working with children. Our volunteers are selected from our congregation and have undergone a criminal background check.

Sundays at 10am & Fridays at 7pm

Women to Women

Women to Women’s purpose is 1). to draw women into a deeper relationship with Christ, which will bring healing and wholeness to our lives; 2). to help women discover the specific call God has for us and help us to mature in that call by providing areas of service; 3). to encourage uplifting fellowship with other Christian women. The Purpose of this Ministry is to lead women to the Heart of God —to love each other, meet each other’s needs, help bring healing to one another, inspire each other to grow spiritually, identify our gifts and be used in the Kingdom.

Brothers Keepers logo

Brothers Keepers

God asked a guilty Cain, “Where is Abel your brother?” His response was: “I do not know. Am I my brother’s keeper? (Gen. 4:9)” Men gather together at Brothers Keepers to encourage each other to take their place in their home, in their community and in the Body of Christ and to be accountable to one another as men of God. Brothers Keepers helps members to be a strong anchor in all their spheres of influence; to step up, step in and step on in our walk with Christ. May we never have to answer when asked where our brother is, “I do not know.”
