Lorna Wilson, Missions Coordinator
It was in 2013 that Lorna began her Charis experience after deciding to retire from 32 years of General Nursing. After completing 3 years at Charis, in 2016 she started working for AWME/Charis as Receptionist/Purchaser for AWME and Missions Coordinator for Charis Bible College. Due to the growth of the college her role is now totally focused on coordinating the students’ mission trips. This has been an exciting development. Her role as Missions Coordinator is to inspire students with regards to mission as much as it is to organise their mission trips abroad and in the UK, taking the Gospel as far and as deep to people of a different culture and environment to their own.
Lucy Curtis-Prior, 3rd Year Coordinator
Having spent a number of years working with young people in London, Lucy discovered the true Grace of God and the amazing power of His Word through Andrew’s teachings. This gave her a desire to attend Charis Bible College in Walsall, from which she graduated in 2012. Following this, Lucy stepped into the post of 3rd Year Leadership Programme Coordinator. She values the students whose lives God has led her to touch in some way, and feels it is an immense privilege to continue learning and working alongside colleagues in this environment.
Shirley Mifetu, Student Services Coordinator
Shirley is originally from the Island of Mauritius. She first came across a testimony of Healing through Andrew Wommack, which she found on the internet, which has radically changed her life. She and her husband, Emmanuel, both attended Charis Bible College, where they learnt more about God’s unconditional love and the balance between grace and faith. They both graduated in 2014. Shirley has since stepped into the role of Student Services Coordinator, which she enjoys very much. She has a passion to support and encourage the students as they develop and thrive towards their God given potential.
Helen Rodway, Assistant Administrator
Helen and her husband Paul have had experience running home bible study groups in various churches and were involved in a national healing ministry for a while. Helen is a mother to 4 married children – her youngest son and his wife also work for Andrew Wommack Ministries. Some teaching that particularly impacted her has been Spirit, Soul & Body, and the Renewing of the Mind in Romans 12 – lessons she had learned in years gone by when her then 12 year old eldest son was diagnosed with leukaemia. To ‘walk on the water’, looking to Jesus beyond the ‘winds and the waves’, and renewing her mind to the truth of God, became her revelation at that time. Her childcare and nursing backgrounds have stood her in good stead as she helped organise Kingdom Kids at the Grace & Faith Conferences and ministering in schools in her 3rd Year Charis Placement.
Helen plans and endeavours to deliver smooth running to the Hybrid Saturday School, which has been so much enjoyed since it started in January 2017.
Oluwatobi Adewale, Hybrid Saturday School Second Year Coordinator
Oluwatobi was a successful secondary school teacher for 12 years and held a leadership position at his last school before attending Charis Bible College. He attended King’s College University in London where he majored in Theology. Oluwatobi first encountered Andrew Wommack’s teachings in his early twenties when a friend gave him the CD set of Andrew’s teaching titled “You’ve Already Got It”. In the summer of 2015 Oluwatobi had an encounter with God whilst on holiday and heard God tell him to attend bible college. He is a graduate of Charis Bible College Walsall and is now our Hybrid Saturday School Second Year Coordinator. He has a passion for teaching the Word of God with simplicity and enjoys reading and watching football in his spare time.
Selina Brown, Assistant Missions Coordinator
Selina has lived in Walsall all of her life. She was introduced to Andrew Wommack’s teaching at the Grace and Faith Conference in 2016. Selina heard the simple truth of the Gospel for the first time. She had an encounter with God that completely transformed her life. Selina and her husband Andrew are 2018 graduates of Charis Bible College and 2019 graduates of the Third Year Leadership programme. Upon graduating Selina was given the opportunity to work in the Mission’s Department. Selina finds it exciting and rewarding, helping the students to prepare for and take part in successful mission trips, enabling them to take the Gospel as far and as deep as possible. She has a strong desire to share the truth of the Word of God with people who are yet to have heard it.
Paul Rodway, Hybrid Saturday School volunteer
Paul was a dental surgeon for all of his professional life, but when accompanying their son to the Charis Open Week in 2010, Paul, and his wife Helen, discovered an overwhelming desire to join the college as well. “We’ve not seen anything like this for 20 years!” Two years later they were able to ‘retire’ straight into college. Though no strangers to Andrew’s teaching and New Covenant emphases such as Spirit Soul & Body, Freedom from the Law, and Grace – The Power of the Gospel, the consistent exposition from Andrew and other Charis instructors, for Paul, opened a fuller picture and reality of the Life in Christ Jesus and of freedom in the Holy Spirit. Coming to Charis was like coming home, and has, with Helen, consolidated their thinking and revolutionised their family. It has been such a privilege for Paul to be involved in this ministry and see ‘the Word of God work’ in his life and so many others.
