  • Encounter Jesus in daily worship led by Charlie & Jill LeBlanc, Jamie Wommack, and Charis Worship.
  • Experience everything in the heart of the Pikes Peak Region in the beautiful town of Woodland Park, Colorado!

We have fun-filled programs for kids ages five to seventeen. Led by dedicated children’s and youth ministers, your children will discover who God is and what He has planned for their lives through exciting games and activities, music, and age-appropriate messages on God’s true character and love for them. Young kids and teens alike are in for the time of their lives. This takes vacation Bible school to the next level!

In addition to the regular program, take the opportunity to attend Healing School. And when you’re not inside soaking up the Word, enjoy the breathtaking scenery on the Charis Bible College campus.
