The Hybrid Programme
Study on-line at home…
As a student on the Hybrid Progamme, you will usually watch 8 to 12 fifty-minute lessons each week from the comfort of your home. See sample module descriptions here.
…and meet on-campus for 18 Saturdays per year
Typically, once a fortnight, you’ll join other students in your year group for a live Saturday School on-campus in Dumfries. These Saturday Schools include live worship, ministry training and group discussions.
The Hybrid Programme runs from September 2022 to May 2023. Please find below the full list of On-Campus Saturday Schools for 2022/23.

Second Year students spend the morning receiving their own live teaching sessions. After lunch, the remaining three hours of the day are spent in workshops training to preach and teach, preparing for the mission trip, and engaging in Discipleship Evangelism level 2. There is also the opportunity to review the practical ministry courses students will have studied at home.
Please note that all second-year students participate in a Mission Trip. Ordinarily, this would be a team visit to a cross-cultural location, usually around Easter. Should covid restrictions return, online mission opportunities will be made available to all second-year students.
The Third Year Leadership Programme is a unique blend of the best of the Third Year Ministry track and the Third Year Business track along with personal development classes recorded at Charis Bible College, Woodland Park, Colorado. Charis Dumfries students watch these videos at home and engage in live teaching tutorials at the Saturday Schools in Dumfries.
On a typical Saturday Third Year students in Dumfries spend the first hour of the day with the rest of the college in worship. The remaining five hours are spent in specialised tutorials covering the following topics:
- How to teach effectively by drawing on God’s anointing, a working knowledge of the Bible, and good communication skills.
- Discipleship Evangelism Level Three.
- A review of the business and ministry courses studied at home
- How to lead Communions, Offerings, Discipleship classes and more
- A real-time business project-planning exercise
The Hybrid Programme is for anyone who has a career, church, or family obligations, yet has a deep desire to gain more understanding of the Word of God and wants to grow in their relationship with the Lord.
The Hybrid Programme is ideal for those who know there’s more to life than they are experiencing and want to discover God’s purpose and plan while maintaining their everyday responsibilities!
The Programme is particularly designed for:
- Those unable to move close to a Charis location, but can travel a distance for 18 Saturdays a year.
- People who prefer to study at their own convenience but within a given time-frame
- People who like to discuss issues in groups
- People looking to worship and fellowship with like-minded believers
- People looking for live interaction with mature and experienced local Charis staff.
For the year 2022/23 the tuition fees for attending the Hybrid Programmes are the same as the Charis Day School in the UK. Please note, that there is an additional charge for the second-year mission trip.
