Everyone has a hope and a future and we want people to move from a place of surviving to thriving spiritually, emotionally and physically in their lives.
The UK team works with local Charis teams and partners in various countries to identify the needs of a community. We then work together on projects that will meet these needs and make a real, tangible difference to people’s lives. We want people to know they are loved, seen and known.
Our generous donors financial support helps us change people’s lives for the better.
Board of trustees
As with all UK registered charities, the trustees have the overall legal responsibility for Charis Ministries, to ensure its effective management and administration.
We are privileged to have a board of trustees who come with a wide range of experience in church leadership, ministry, business and finance.
Keith & Anita Baptist – Trustees
Keith is a retired business executive with more than 40 years’ experience in the international mining sector having lived and worked in several countries. Transferring his business knowledge and life experience into tools to develop and support the pastors and leaders working with Charis Ministries, is very important to him. His desire is to facilitate and assist those pastors to bring the word of God to many people so they can know Jesus, and experience God. Keith’s wealth of international and cultural experience and his gifting in leadership and administration are invaluable. He is the Director of Administration for Charis Ministries.
Anita’s heart is simply Jesus, demonstrating the love of God wherever she goes and in whatever she does. In her own words: “to see millions of people experience the love of God in encounters with God Himself; and seeing the Church putting itself to prayer leading to a powerful intimacy with God”. Having counselled and mentored many, within the body of Christ and the corporate world, she brings with her, powerful gifts of discernment, perseverance and wisdom, and an immense joy of the Lord. Her prophetic insight and passion for prayer and intercession places her in a position in God’s “army” that can only be described as “divinely positioned”.
For Charis Ministries she leads the prayer and intercession teams, as well as the development work with the local pastors on income generation projects. Keith and Anita have been married since 1994 and they currently reside in Horsham, West Sussex, UK. They fellowship at the Elim Church in Crawley, West Sussex.
Sandy Schultz – Trustee
Sandy was born in Zimbabwe and moved to the UK in 1997. She has had the privilege of living in two wonderful countries and experiencing the culture and vibrancy of many more as she’s travelled. She loves meeting new people and encountering new cultures.
Her career has been very varied with experience of different industries and areas of business ranging from corporations and start up businesses to charities. She loves variety! Sandy brings the skills and experience she has gained over the years to Charis.
Sandy loves Jesus and longs for people to know Him, be in relationship with Him and hear His voice. She wants to see restoration and transformation in people’s lives so that they can be released into the fullness of what God has for them. She sees this happen in people’s lives as she coaches them and as she prays for them.
