Mike and Caroline Hoesch

March 16 & 17, 2015 at 6:30-9:30 pm


M C Hoesch cropHave you ever wanted to meet someone who has experienced a visible but “impossible” healing from God? Would you like he and his wife to show you in the scriptures how anyone can be healed? Would you like a chance to ask them questions?

Mike Hoesch was healed of a cancerous tumor on his chest and has the pictures to show it. His breakthrough of understanding came when he read one of Andrew Wommack’s books titled You’ve Already Got It. Mike is featured in a video in Healing Journeys 3.

Come meet Mike and Carolyn Hoesch and share in their miracle.

New Year – New Healing School

HAPPY NEW YEAR to all the partners and friends of Charis Bible College at Washington DC!

We’re starting 2015 with something we believe will be a blessing to not only our students but all people in the Washington DC area. We will be live streaming Healing School from Charis at Colorado through the internet every Thursday of the school year from 3-5 pm our time.

Healing School became a reality when Chip and I were in our first year of Charis Bible College at Colorado. We attended the first student training sessions even before the public was invited and were excited when students received healing during the teaching! Since then, hundreds of people have been healed at Healing School, their testimonies publicized at later Healing Schools or on the Andrew Wommack website.

Daniel Amstutz and Carley Terradez run Healing School with the help of students, volunteers and other staff members. Carley was healed of severe epilepsy and her daughter Hannah was healed from an incurable disease days away from death. Watch the story of Hannah’s healing.

Charis Bible College Healing School is not weird or something that would scare children. It is free and open to everyone. There is about an hour of singing praises to turn our hearts and minds to God, followed by about an hour of teaching by someone who has actually received divine healing. After the teaching, trained students are available to pray for you individually.

It is no secret what God can do. What He’s done for others, He’ll do for you.

We’re here every Thursday of the school year from 3-5 pm.

We’d love to have you visit. (See a map to our location)

P.S. The school year includes every Thursday from now through May 14 except for April 2. We’re on the second floor but there is an elevator.

Fall Term Ending

We started November with prayer for those who sent in requests in response to the mission trip letter. How powerful the Spirit was as we united in prayer, believing that those things which we said would come to pass! (Mark 11: 22-26)

Thank you for giving us the privilege of praying for you and those you love.

Susan Dial and Mitzi Nel shared their testimonies with us of the many miracles that they have witnessedCR2crop in their walks with Jesus. A son’s dead kidney returned to life and function. African children were miraculously fed in the midst of famine. These ladies have poured out their lives for the sake of the gospel and they have the stories to prove it! We were exhorted, edified and comforted by their visit to CHARIS Bible College in Washington DC.

Wendell Parr saw Charis Bible College-Washington DC for the first time in November as part of a tour of the eastern USA extension schools. For the few who don’t know Wendell, when God called Andrew to build a Bible College, Wendell was the man Andrew contacted.

CR1cropWendell spent two evenings with us, teaching us HOW to present our bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God. And HOW to not be conformed to this world but to be transformed by the renewing of the mind, that we may prove what is that good, and acceptable and perfect will of God. (Romans 12:1,2) As we all know, it is fairly easy to know scriptures in the head. Wendell showed us how to live these important scriptures in our day-to-day lives.

BR1cropOn November 20, students completed classes for the fall term. Winter term classes begin December 1. New students may enroll for the winter term on December 1.

Even if you can’t enroll, please come visit us.



I want to close this newsletter with part of an e-mail from a student. She said,

“This Thanksgiving I am thankful for the both of you and Janice

for answering the call to open a CBC in this area. It has and it is changing my life.”

November Speakers

And the things that thou hast heard

of me (Paul) among many witnesses,

the same commit thou to faithful men,

who shall be able to teach others also.”

2 Timothy 2:2



This scripture is the mission statement of Charis Bible College. In the month of November, CHARIS Washington DC campus will be hosting three guest speakers who have been found faithful and have extraordinary life experiences to teach to you.




November 10th 6:30-7:20 pm

Bble StudySusan Dial (69 years young) has recently moved to the Washington area from her childhood home in South Carolina. This was in answer to the call on her life to share what the Holy Spirit has taught Her about God’s Covenants and His faithfulness to perform all that He has promised for the believer. Her audience quickly relates with her moving testimony of the miraculous healing of her son’s dead kidney and other provisions as a single mother after being deserted by her husband. With simplicity she brings fresh insight into the integrity of our Heavenly Father.


Mitzi Nel and her late husband Henry started the Church of God in Capetown, South Africa 60 years ago. They retired from the ministry and became missionaries to the children and widows in Zimbabwe, Africa. During the seven year drought they were feeding 3500 starving children every day. Mitzi witnessed the power of God providing food for the children when there was no food available! Mitzi’ has lived in the miraculous with testimonies about standing against the power of witch doctors. Hear how she was miraculously healed of a stroke which paralyzed her left side. Mitzi currently lives in Yorktown, VA with her daughter and continues sharing the love of God.



November 17 & 18, 6:30-9:30 pm


Wendell Parr has been in ministry for over four decades. He founded a charismatic church in Texas where he served as Senior Pastor for 18 years. In 1994, he moved to Colorado Springs, Colorado to help Andrew Wommack start Charis Bible College. He taught there for three years and then moved to England where he successfully planted the first CHARIS extension school. He directed Bob Nichols’ Bible school in Fort Worth, Texas, before returning to Colorado where he now serves as the Director of AWM World Outreach and an instructor at CHARIS. Wendell and his wife, Linda, have two children, Wendy and Dean, and one granddaughter, Ashtin.
