I am Sylvia Boswell, director of CHARIS-Washington DC.
Why would we start a Bible college when there are churches already teaching the same thing? It’s because one year of Bible College equals in time to over 10 years of being in church for an hour every single Sunday. There is no substitute for time in the Word for growing up Christians. (I Peter 2:2-3)
What has CHARIS done for us and thousands of students like us? We’re better spouses, children, parents, friends and sons of God. We know God loves us not because we’re so lovable but because He IS love. We care more about what God thinks and less about what people think. God has been magnified in our lives. In a nutshell, we’ve grown up at last.
