Interactive Course Format


New terms start approximately every 6-8 weeks. You can take as few or as many courses as you like each term.  If you need to skip a term, no problem. You can continue with the next term in 6-8 weeks.


Once a term begins, you and your classmates are assigned two lessons per week. Complete them anytime that week. Even though you can enroll and study at your convenience, many students enjoy the benefits of the structure to help pace their progress.


In each course you are enrolled with other like-minded believers. Each course is also facilitated by a Charis staff member. You have many opportunities during the course to interact with your facilitator and classmates. At the end of each lesson, there is a discussion question to which all students reply in an open discussion forum. This stimulates enriching dialogue with classmates and facilitators.

Self-Paced Course Format


There are no term schedules and enrollment is always open. 


You may enroll at any time for as many courses as you like.  Self-Paced courses do not have facilitators or class interaction, so you may complete your courses at your own pace.  You can begin immediately and take up to 12 months to complete your course.
