Q. Can anyone be a Group Leader of a Charis Bible Study?
A. No, Group Leaders of Charis Bible Study groups must be graduates of Charis Bible College, having completed two or more years of study.
On the other hand, Andrew Wommack Study Group leaders do not need to be Charis graduates.
Q. Can I start a Charis Bible Study internationally?
A. We can start Bible Study Groups within New Zealand, but only if there are Charis graduates in the area to lead the group.
Q. Do attendees have to pay a fee to attend a study group?
A. No, there is no fee for attendees to attend either an Andrew Wommack Study Group or a Charis Bible Study.
Q. Do attendees receive “credit(s)” for completing studies?
A. No credits toward Charis Bible College are given, but if you would like to give a “certificate of completion” to your attendees who complete the study, you may do so.
Q. Do I have to have an established group to start a study?
A. No. You may start a Charis Bible Study with people you already have established in a group. We will also let you know if there are other people in your area who would like to attend your group.
Q. Do I have to provide copies of lessons for attendees?
A. No. You can choose to make copies or you can send the lesson handouts to group participants from the CD Rom located inside the front cover of the study guide.
Q. How far in advance do I plan my next study?
A. Four to six weeks. This will give us time to process the details of your study, and send you the next study guide. It also gives us time to publicise your study group, which in turn gives people in your area time to find and register for your study.
Q. What if I want to start a Bible Study group but do not have a location?
A. Please contact us as we may be able to connect you with people in your area who are willing to host your Bible Study in their home.
Q. When or why would an attendee be withdrawn from a study group?
A. If an attendee misses class for three consecutive weeks without explanation, then the Group Leader has the option of withdrawing that attendee so that a potential attendee on the waiting list may join that study group. The Group Leader should notify the withdrawn attendee via email or phone to let them know that they have been withdrawn from the group.
An attendee may also be withdrawn from a study for unacceptable or disruptive behaviour.
