Andrew Wommack: President and Founder of Charis Bible College

Every successful minister goes through school. It’s just a matter of whether it’s in a formal educational setting with experienced instructors ready to help, or an informal one through the “school of hard knocks,” alone. I took the latter route, and I must say, if you survive, it makes a great testimony. However, I don’t recommend it!

The Lord led me to start Charis Bible College for the purpose of training people for the work of the ministry. He wanted me to take a unique approach; it had to be a combination of the rich teaching of God’s Word and practical, hands-on ministry experience.

This was modeled in the Old Testament by Elijah and Elisha with the school of the prophets and in the New Testament when Paul told Timothy to train faithful men to teach others. With this combination, I knew our graduates would be able to avoid many of the problems and hardships I encountered; they would be well prepared.

Whatever God is leading you to do, preparation is never a waste of time. Statistics show that 80% of ministers drop out of the ministry, and 80% of those who stay are on the verge of burnout. I believe the lack of preparation, spiritually, academically, and practically are at the root of these statistics.

Charis Bible College instructors have accumulated decades of experience in ministry, and their experience may very well keep you from becoming a statistic. Two years of preparation is a small price to pay for a lifetime of successful ministry.

If the Lord is speaking to you about attending CBC, call or write and request a catalog. It will help you in your decision. If you choose to attend, I guarantee you it will change your life and the lives of those around you forever.

Cindy Quarles: Director of CBC Chicago

A Word From The Director:

Aside from my decision to be a life-long disciple of Jesus, the decision to come to Charis Bible College Chicago was the best decision of my life.  The short two years invested at Charis has yielded a life rich beyond measure and completely changed my direction in life.

Through Andrew’s and others’ excellent instruction, religion fell away and I came into relationship with God.  Relationship with God is everything, and it is the “why” of all we do here at CBC Chicago.  It is the platform from which God will launch you into the wonderful plan He has for you.

Immersion in the Word, intimate praise and worship, fellowship with like-minded believers, and mentoring and modeling by staff and leadership create an environment for transformation and promote relationship with this kind, gracious and loving Father.

This is what we experience every day at Charis Bible College Chicago!  We want to share that with you.

Grace & Peace,

Cynthia A. Quarles
