Charis is a bible college unlike any other, where it’s not about the academics but rather an empowerment of identity and an enriched relationship with God. The teachers and staff at Charis are here to encourage each student to be able to hear and know God’s voice. Relationship and finding your unique purpose is our priority.
We offer the following programs to 1st year students:
Full-time On-campus program: 8:30 AM – 12:30 PM, Monday – Friday
First-Year Charis Hybrid Program: 6:00 PM – 9:00 PM, every Tuesday evening of the school term.
First-year courses include; Relationship with God, Basics of Righteousness, Receiving from God and Old Testament Survey to name a few. The curriculum was designed to give students a solid Biblical foundation with an emphasis on faith, grace and walking with the Holy Spirit through the work of the cross and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
In addition to classes, full-time, first-year students are required to volunteer two hours per week in a Charis approved ministry. There are many opportunities to serve depending on your interests, talents and availability.
Upon completion of the first-year program, students receive a Certificate of Biblical Studies and are eligible to enter the second-year Practical Ministry Training at Charis Bible College. Apply to begin your training!
Where the first year sets your foundation in the Word, the second year builds upon it. Through cross cultural mission trips and practical ministerial training, the courses are aimed at teaching you to share what you have learned with the world. The emphasis is on learning by doing.
We offer the following programs to 2nd year students:
Full-time On-Campus program: 8:30 AM – 12:30 PM, Monday – Friday
2nd-Year Charis Hybrid Program: 6:00 PM – 9:00 PM, every Tuesday evening during the school term
Second-year courses such as New Testament Survey, Ministry of Excellence, Biblical Leadership and Making of a Minister will further progress your training.
In addition to regular classes, students also engage in Inter-Action Groups (IAGs) – small workshops designed to help you fine tune and practice skills such as public speaking, preparing teachings, prayer, etc.
All second-year students are required to go on a Charis planned mission trip as part of their requirements for graduation. We believe that mission trips are a valuable part of ministry training. Students learn how to function as a team in a foreign culture and unfamiliar surroundings, as well as how to share the Gospel and communicate through an interpreter. These trips are life-changing. Even if you don’t plan to minister on foreign fields, these trips will expand your world vision and grant you insight to help those who are called to missions.
Charis mission trips are typically between 7-10 days in length. Trips are scheduled throughout the school year and require students to minister through teaching, evangelism, prayer and drama to both adults and children of different nations. Locations change from year to year based upon hosts and scheduling restrictions.
Upon the successful completion of the second-year Practical Ministry Training, the student will receive a Certificate of Practical Ministry and their minister’s licence from Andrew Wommack Ministries Colorado.
For many students, this will fulfil their educational goals. Those called to full-time ministry may apply to continue on to our third-year Ministry Training Program.
3rd Year Ministry Training Program
The ministry leadership Program is a hybrid of leadership, business and ministry courses; along with practical ministry to prepare students for their future Ministry or Business.
Charis Hybrid Program
The Hybrid Program is a full-time, one-year program for first and second-year students which gives you the experience of on-campus life while still being able to do most of your study at home.
All students will watch the lessons at home via an online learning management system. On a semi-regular basis, students will come together for worship, live teaching, connect groups, review & share time, mission prep, guest speakers and much more. During this time students build relationships that last a lifetime. This program is created for individuals that have career, family or life commitments and it is more convenient for long distance travel.
We have two Hybrid Programs available in Australia.
· Gold Coast: Every Tuesday Evening – 6:00pm to 9:00pm.
· Melbourne: Every 2nd Saturday – 9:30am to 3:00pm.
Enrol in the Charis Hybrid Program and enjoy wonderful fellowship with like-minded believers as you are transformed by the amazing message of God’s unconditional love and grace.
