Our Founders

David and Bev Dickson

As Founders of Charis Ministries we chose the name because, as “charis” is used in the bible, it is often translated “grace”.

We recognise that, as people who have been recipients of God’s lavish and restoring grace, we need to participate in passing that grace to others.

In the UK we are based at the Elim Church in Crawley where we enjoy being part of the leadership team as well as itinerant work in the church and community in the South East of England.

Some of our areas of work have included:

  • The Haven Centre – pregnancy crisis, post abortion support
  • Street 360 – Youth project based in West Sussex as part of Youth for Christ
  • Mount Carmel – faculty member of the Bible College based in Sri Lanka.
  • Teaching and training for Family Support Work as part of the Diocese of Chichester in Sussex
  • Teaching in several countries and developing leadership material for use in Africa.
  • Debt Centre Manager working with Christians Against Poverty
