Leadership & Staff Team

The Executive Team (executive director, Fellowship coordinator, and networking coordinator) and staff members (Charis Retirement Plan manager, bookkeeper, creative & design manager, and editor & communications manager) help to provide organization and administration to various initiatives designed to be a blessing and encouragement to our Charis family. 

They assist with planning National Conference and Focus Retreats, facilitate networking opportunities for churches and ministries, provide regular communication on Fellowship-wide news and events, and strive to help create and sustain a culture of movement within the Charis Fellowship.

Fellowship Council

The Fellowship Council is a group of 17 representatives elected to serve as the official board of directors of the Charis Fellowship, providing leadership and management to the business and affairs of the corporation.

Council members represent the districts from their respective regions, each serving one five-year term. They provide wise and godly leadership to preserve unity, provide protection and accountability, and to help advance the mission and objectives of the Fellowship. The Fellowship Council also partners with national ministry leaders to help support their mission and vision, and to foster unity throughout the Fellowship.
