Ministry Description

I serve as the Executive Dean of Word of Life Bible Institute Philippines by overseeing its day-to-day operations. I also minister to the students by teaching Bible and Theology courses. Ella and I are also involved in student discipleship where we help them grow in their walk with God.

Ministry Impact

At the Bible Institute, I have witnessed young men and women be discipled and trained to impact the fast-changing world with the unchanging Word of God. Many of our graduates are serving God in missions and local churches in the Philippines and around the world. Additionally, many alumni are impacting their respective professional, vocational, and business fields for the glory of God.


I am Mikhail Tolentino, a missionary of Word of Life Philippines under the Bible Institute. I received Jesus Christ as my personal Savior at the age of five. During our Eternity Week in Marinduque, I saw the need for more trained church workers and missionaries for the harvest is truly plenty but the laborers are few (Mt. 9:37-38). Though I do have the desire to reach the nations for Christ, I know that I am limited. This gave me the desire to help train and disciple more young men and women with God’s unchanging Word so that they could reach out and impact the fast-changing world.

Spouse Profile

I am Ella Mae D. Tolentino. I was 14 when I received God’s salvation. I had the privilege to study God’s word at WOLBI Philippines in 2012. I was burdened to share the gospel to the youth. It is a great blessing for me to serve God at WOLBI Philippines.
