There are a few options for joining Charis Bible Studies if there are not any physically in your area. If you register as an attendee without registering for a specific study, you will be automatically signed up for emails that are sent to you when a study in your area has been created.

As a way of saying thank you for letting us know that a Study is needed in your area, we will give you a 10% discount on the purchase of any Study Guides used in Charis Bible Studies.

There are online studies that you are welcome to sign up for. We have great Group Leaders that broadcast their Charis Bible Studies online so that those who do not have access to a physical Study can still attend and participate in a Study. You can see a list of Online Studies and register to attend an Online Study at this link (Online Studies).

There is also the opportunity to purchase study guides through the Andrew Wommack Ministries store and do self-study or go through the lessons with a friend until a Charis Bible Study is begun in your area.

If you have questions on any of these options, please reach out to help@charisbiblecollege.net.

The Charis Bible Studies team understands the difficulty of using the website. We appreciate your patience and grace with us as we work through the issues and build the site into what we envision. Until we are able to make all of the changes and corrections, please see the below list of helpful hints that may be what you need for the website to function correctly.

The Charis Bible Studies website works best while using a laptop or desktop computer.  If you are using your phone or tablet, you will have very limited access to our site.

Chrome is the best browser to use for the website. This browser is free. Firefox is second and also free to download.

If an incorrect password or email is saved, please go into your browser history and clear the sign-in information for the Charis Bible Studies site. This should clear the incorrectly saved data.

 

If you run into any issues that are not fixed by any of these hints, please reach out to help@charisbiblestudies.net with questions. We are here to support you.

Under the "Find" tab, once you have your Charis Bible Study selected, you can hover your mouse over the oval with three dots that are to the left of the group leader's name and study information. A dropdown menu should appear. Select "email" and a box for the body of the email will pop up. It will automatically connect to the group leader's email. Click submit when you are finished with your email.

When you register to become a Charis Bible Study group leader, you will need to read the group leader handbook and sign that you have read and agree to the terms and conditions laid out in the handbook. There will also be a test over the handbook that you will need to make a 93% or better on to get through to the review process. 

You will also need to provide three references as part of your application. One needs to be your Charis Bible College director or advisor. The second reference needs to be a current or former pastor of your church. The third will be a personal reference. Please select one of your three references to represent your ministry abilities. You only need one of the three references to speak on your ministry experience. Directors or mission trip leaders make for great ministry references.

To find out if all three references have submitted their forms or to check if you have filled out the sections over the handbook, please log in to your registered group leader account. Click on "Profile" at the top of the web page. You will see a status bar with boxes numbered 1-4. If the box is filled in as red, you have completed that step for applying to become a Charis Bible Study group leader.

Once each box is filled, you have finished the application process and are now moved to the review process. This process takes 1-2 weeks to complete on average. You will receive an email on whether you have been approved as a group leader or not.
