Mark A. Jalovick, Th.M., Director

The Wisconsin Campus of PBU offers an accredited alternative to a traditional college year. WWC offers a Bible-centered curriculum taught to a small student body in a recreational wilderness location to develop God-centered personal growth, direction, and responsibility in the lives of these students.

WWC provides a significant educational experience for students who are pursuing a college education or want a one-year, Bible-centered program. The curriculum is primarily biblical with some general and professional studies as well. The enrollment is limited by design to provide increased opportunities for personal guidance and discipleship, formal and informal interaction with professors, interpersonal skills development and recreational experience.

The recreational wilderness location provides a fun atmosphere for outdoor recreational and educational experiences and gives students a place away from normal distractions where they can better focus on God-centered priorities.


The objectives of the Wisconsin Wilderness Program are as follows:

  1. to teach a Bible-centered curriculum that will produce in the student a foundational knowledge of Scripture and a biblical world and life view
  2. to provide an environment that affords students maximum opportunities for personal discipleship and character development
  3. to provide a location and program that will enable students to enjoy and expand their recreational interests
  4. to guide students in foundational principles for future life direction

As an extension of PBU, WWC is accredited, and credits are transferable to academic programs at other colleges and universities. The number of credits accepted will depend on the college and major chosen.

The Wisconsin Wilderness Campus utilizes the facilities of Lake Owen Camp in Cable, Wisconsin. The 16-acre facility is located on beautiful Lake Owen and is surrounded by the Chequamegon National Forest’s one million acres of woodland and lakes.

Lake Owen Lodge houses the cafeteria, library,computer lab, and offices. The student dorms are located in two beautiful and spacious three-story buildings overlooking the lake. The classroom building houses the classroom on the second floor and a student lounge on the first floor. The gymnasium is used for volleyball, weight-lifting, in-line skating/skateboarding, and general exercise. Three homes on campus house the resident staff families.
