Charis Bible College is an extension of Andrew Wommack Ministries (AWM). This Bible college has many extension and satellite schools all over the world. Many attend either to answer a call from God in preparation for ministry or just to develop their own personal relationship with the Lord. While AWM spreads Andrew’s teaching materials globally, Charis Bible College goes one step further with discipleship. Preparation is never a waste of time for a lifetime of effective ministry. Once the grace and love of God take root, your life will never be the same.

Charis Bible College (CBC) 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!

Change Your Life, change the world!


The First Year: Bible Training Institute Course

Become grounded in the Word of God

Charis Bible College believes in the importance of academics, but those who are going into the ministry must know how to minister! We strive for a balance between knowledge of Scripture and practical ministry experiences.

About First Year Classes
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 Ghost through the work of the cross and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

In addition to classes, first-year students are required to volunteer 25 hours each term (3 months) in practical ministry either in a local church, Andrew Wommack Ministries, Charis Bible College, or other CBC-approved ministries. 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 Completion and are eligible to enter the Second Year at Charis Bible College.


Second Year Program: School of Practical Ministry

Practical application of the Word

Whereas the First Year sets your foundation in the Word, the Second Year builds upon it with courses aimed at teaching you to share what you have learned with the world! The emphasis is on learning by doing.

About Second Year classes
Second-year courses such as New Testament Survey, Principles of Godly Leadership, Living in Balance and Making of a Minister further progress you are 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 CBC 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 foreign culture and unfamiliar surroundings, as well as, how to share the Gospel and communicate through an interpreter. These are life-changing trips. Even if you do not plan to minister on foreign fields, these trips will expand your world vision and grant your insight to help those who are called to missions. CBC 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 successfully completing the second-year program, students will receive a certificate of completion.
