Charis students are heroes 

Charis Bible College students are on a path to become modern-day heroes.

Gary Luecke, director of CharisThey’ve left jobs, homes, and loved ones behind to devote themselves to the Word of God for two or more years. Though extremely diverse, their common passion for truth knits them together as family. 

In a recent interview, the Charis director, Gary Luecke, had this to say about them:

1.What inspires you about Charis students?

I love the diversity of the students here, as well as their unique testimonies of God’s leading and provision. I love watching them develop relationships with one another, encouraging each other in the faith.

2. What will students learn at Charis?

Our school is structured so students spend their first year solidifying a foundation in the Word. The Bible is our textbook. Each year, students spend hundreds of hours studying and receiving instruction in the Word, which highlights God’s unconditional love and grace and encourages students to respond to His love in faith. 

By the time students leave Charis, they will know that God loves them unconditionally and that He has a wonderful plan for their lives that blends perfectly with their unique mix of gifts and personalities.

I want our students to leave Charis confident in their relationship with the Lord, recognizing His voice, and knowing that they can accomplish all He has called them to do. I don’t want our students to compare themselves with one another or try to be like other ministers; I want them to be who God created and called them to be, regardless of whether or not “it’s been done.”  

Charis students are family4. What do you believe God is speaking to this year’s student body?

This year’s graduating class is The Class of Magnificent Grace. I believe that the Lord would like them to know that there is a special “enabling  grace,” or favor, on their lives to help them walk out, or through, anything they are confronted with. When Paul prayed for God to remove his “thorn in the flesh” (2 Cor. 12:7), God reminded him that His “grace is sufficient” (2 Cor. 12:9) for him. Likewise, no matter how difficult times get, this year’s student body can count on God’s magnificent grace to be with them.
