Media School at Charis Bible College

"You've got a story, and its better than you think."- Stephen Bransford, Director of the Media School


3rd Year Business School

Charis Bible College’s Media School is a workshop environment where students go beyond theory to build media communications from the ground up. It is a fast-paced, hands-on program that equips the student to expose various ministries to the world and tell their stories.

Experienced communications professionals with strong backgrounds in written communication, graphic design, video, film editing, lighting, television production and websites instruct Media School students and lead them in practical application workshops.

The classroom includes Apple computers, High Definition Video Cameras, and professional Adobe software that students use to learn and hone their skills in support of Christian organizations.

Cinema Arts Program

Media is such a powerful resource for the Kingdom of God that we’ve had to expand Media School to a fourth term. The summer of 2016 saw the landmark program of Cinema Arts at Charis. Dedicated students who chose to attend the film school learned script writing, the intricacies of production planning, cinematography, and the art of post-production. The fruits of their labor resulted in “A Real Good Lesson.”
