FAQ's

Do you have questions about Charis Bible School?


Check out our FAQ's below:


Are you an accredited college?

Charis Bible School is unaccredited. We are a practical training school. Many attend to answer a call from God and prepare for ministry. Others come just to develop their own personal relationship with the Lord. Charis Bible School offers the ideal environment for transformation, as your mind is renewed by the Word of God. For some, this two-year commitment has restored their lives and their faith. For some, it has been the beginning of a new adventure with God. And for others, it has been the discovery of God’s call on their lives.


If God is calling you to Charis Bible School, be obedient and take the first step to fulfilling your God-given destiny.
