From their humble beginnings to their global footprint today, the churches of The Charis Alliance share a common quest to faithfully and creatively represent God’s Son and God’s Word among the diverse cultures of our world.

The Charis Alliance is a growing movement that has provided exceptional advantages for churches all around the world. By the grace of God, this network has served thousands of people and hopes to encourage many more in the future.

To get a better feel for the benefits of The Charis Alliance, here are comments from some of the Charis leaders around the world.

What is the biggest benefit of the Charis Alliance?

“The biggest benefit of the Charis Alliance has been the ability to communicate effectively between various partner churches around the world and the opportunity to strengthen ties, allowing for diversity in church planting, leadership development, and holistic ministries. Because of Charis, we are able to more efficiently execute mutual collaborations for our common mission as the Church, which has been a joy to see! Multinational ministry teams being formed to take action all around the world is a lovely thing. Also, Charis has encouraged church communities to participate more actively, as well as develop at a local level.”
–Ivaldo Trindade, Brazil

“The Charis Alliance is our tribe. This is a network of people we can trust, know, serve alongside, pursue common interests with, and share mutual values with. For me, Charis is my support group for life and ministry. Though we are only a few churches in Europe, we truly feel we are a part of something bigger. What is truly amazing is the unconditional bond of trust and love we share with other Charis members across the globe. We are in every sense a family. This is the Charis Alliance.”
–Rainer Ehmann, Germany

“We benefit greatly from our participation in the Charis Alliance through gatherings, fellowship, ministry partnerships, and prayer. Sharing experiences, circulating resources and encouraging each other is what makes the Charis Alliance a true advantage.”
–Francois Ngoumape, Central African Republic

“The greatest benefit for us is the feeling of belonging. Even though we French believers are very few, we know we a part of a much larger family of like-minded believers who will share with us moments of mutual-encouragement.”
–Florent Varak, France

What does the Charis Alliance mean for you personally?

“For me, it is especially meaningful to participate in this new movement and to know that I am a part of a Global Community that cultivates a unifying identity. It also feels rewarding to have a global voice in the diverse world in which we live and serve.”
–Ivaldo Trindade, Brazil

“The Charis Alliance is my life-line, my brotherhood, my focus, my counsel, and my camaraderie. Even more so, it is an excellent source of guidance. Whenever I need help or input, knowing I can turn to people within the Charis world is a great benefit to me and my church.”
–Rainer Ehmann, Germany

“The Charis Alliance brings together brothers and sisters from all over the world to know and support each other. For me, it brings great benefit to share in the available resources and ministry partnerships. It's amazing to see people coming together to minister knowing they have been blessed by Charis resources.”
–Francois Ngoumape, Central African Republic

“It provides for me a missionary and world focus that is healthy and motivating. It also allows me to think together about what is essential and ponder more deeply key issues. Furthermore, it encourages the development of my own identity in the global Church.”
–Florent Varak, France
