Another school year has come and gone for students at Charis Bible College, and with it many great moments of personal revelation and hands-on ministry experiences. Andrew's passion for discipleship and vision for CBC is rooted firmly in 2 Timothy 2:2. In the verse, the apostle Paul wrote to Timothy and told him to take the things that he had learned and commit them to faithful men who would, in turn, be able to teach others. It is because of this verse that Andrew stepped out in faith and established CBC in 1994. Since then, Andrew and the staff at Charis Bible College have been diligently and successfully discipling and training people for the work of the ministry.
In 1996, Andrew saw the first 33 students graduate from the Colorado campus, and the scope of discipleship has continued to grow exponentially ever since. From the humble start-up in Colorado Springs, which now boasts a student body of more than 500, CBC has grown to include thriving campuses in 10 American cities and 10 other nations around the world. As more students graduate the multiplication continues. Looking forward, CBC has new schools set to open in Charlotte and Raleigh-Durham, NC; Houston, TX; Minneapolis, MN; and San Jose, CA. Also coming online in the fall are schools in Querétaro, Mexico; Birkenfeld, Germany; Hong Kong, China; Buenos Aires, Argentina; Brugg, Switzerland and Lodz, Poland.
This year, well over four-hundred students graduated from CBC campuses around the world—think of the discipleship yet to come!
Here is a look at Charis Bible College's Class of 2012.
