Why Charis?

Charis Bible College is all about people. Our mission is to equip the saints for the work of the ministry, training disciples to go out and share the Gospel with the rest of the world in the way God has uniquely called each individual to do it.

Andrew didn't plan on starting a Bible college when he began in ministry, but the Lord laid 2 Timothy 2:2 on his heart...

And the things that thou has heard of me among many witnesses, the same commit thou to faithful men, who shall be able to teach others also.

At first, Andrew was frustrated about how to do this, as his heart was to impart more than just knowledge to the students.  However, in 1993, the Lord showed Andrew how it could be done and Charis Bible College (formerly Colorado Bible College) was birthed in 1994.

Since then, Andrew has gathered together many ministers who share his vision for the students; great teachers who impart spiritual, life-changing truths to the students all across the globe.  There are now nearly 40 Charis extension schools around the world, and numerous students that study the curriculum at home.  The staff are willing to serve and encourage you.  The teachings at Charis are more than just an academic exercise; they will impact the way you see God, yourself, and the world around you.

Every believer is called to be a minister of Christ - some are called to pastor, some to evangelize, some to prophesy - but we are all, as believers, called to go forth and make disciples.  We at Charis believe effective ministry can only happen when we understand who God is and what our relationship is with Him.  Once we understand the grace and love of God and our identity in Him, we can make an effortless impact in our world!

When you allow Christ to CHANGE YOUR LIFE, you can't help but CHANGE THE WORLD!
