Charis Bible College, a school that offers a degree in Biblical studies, has opened a new campus in Woodland Park. CBC (originally Colorado Bible College) opened in 1994. The first class of 33 students graduated in 1996. Today, more than 600 students attend classes at the new Woodland Park campus and more than 5,000 more participate Online, via a Correspondence program, or by attending one of 40 extension schools, which span the globe. The college offers a two-year degree program, with an optional Third-Year Ministry Training Program, which provides specialized study in Business, Media, Ministry, Missions and Worship.
Andrew Wommack, President and Founder of Charis Bible College and Andrew Wommack Ministries, was pleased when he and his team of administrators discovered the 157 picturesque acres in Woodland Park, as they had been proactively looking for a property with the capacity to accommodate both the school’s immediate need and the potential long-term growth of CBC.
The new campus officially opened to students in January of this year; however, a Grand Opening Celebration, which is open to the community, will be held on March 22. The event will begin with tours and refreshments at 5 p.m. and continue with live music and a message from Andrew. This celebration will mark the culmination of four and half years of hard work, planning, labor, and a new beginning for Charis Bible College. “Our partners have built this building debt free so we can train people and change people’s lives ... I tell you, this is a miracle ... It’s only God that did this,” Andrew Wommack said.
