Charis Bible College is all about people! Focused on educating the body of Christ about who God is and who He is in His saints. Charis Bible College is equipping 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.
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!
Charis Sherman is a local expression of our world-wide school of ministry. Directors Mary Shain and Administrator Brent Shain are thrilled to be a part of raising up a new remnant of leaders and ministers who will take the light of Jesus further and deeper than they ever thought possible.
