"We came to Charis, broken, and wanting to hide in the back row. In the nine months we have been attending we have found renewal through grace, and getting reacquainted with God's love for us.

We recently launched a ministry, to equip and to allow the Holy Spirit to move, we were able to do this due in a large part to the restoration we have received, the good friends we have made, and through Max's tender support.

We've only met as a ministry three times, but we saw someone receive their prayer language, another week a shoulder was healed, and the prophetic has flowed easily.

This church is safe place to come and learn and grow in grace."

"I would say, in the last year since coming to CKC, I have felt a new sense of freedom as I begin to realize the love and care my Father has for me and the lengths He goes to protect me."

"I have had a deep love for Jesus for a long time.. I lived for 20 years in bondage and when I stumbled in the hands of things of this world. I was believing I failed God so much I had no hope..Just like the Prodigal Son all I wanted is at least the crumbs off the Masters payroll. I felt like a runaway servant but I had a deep hunger to be with our King.

But just like The Prodigal Son when I came running home Jesus was there to meet me. It was here at Charis that Jesus showed me that he loved me and I wasn't a servant anymore but I am his child that he loves and wants to provide for me all the love that I could ever what'd in a father.

It's it's at Charis where I found Grace meet me there and he showed me the most wonderful love that I could have ever had without bondage. Pastor Max following the word of God showed me Grace the way I never knew it before and now I am free to worship God with her whole heart and soul. Thank you Pastor Max and Church Family. I love you all so very much."

"The Rhema church in Olathe we attended for 17 years closed, as the pastors are now on the mission field in Paris. We were attending church, but were missing a church that taught Grace and Faith like Andrew Wommack.

As we have followed Andrew since 1980, we were overjoyed to hear of Charis and have been here full time since October.

Praise the Lord."

"I was in Charis Bible College when Max and Molly came to start Charis Church so Rodger and I have been here since the very beginning. The growth in our faith and health have been nothing short of miraculous. We both work full time and we are in our 70's. The practical applications Max teaches us have helped us to overcome so many day to day obstacles that keep coming up.

It has occurred by learning how to renew our minds and truly listen to God. Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God. Max is a blessing to our family."

"Since the Lord led us to CKC in January, we have been blessed beyond measure. The exceptional teaching, authentic praise and worship, and presence of The Holy Spirit are so precious. Although in each service the teaching is exceptional and Spirit-led, I personally have been enlightened and changed by the Overcoming the Spirit of Poverty and Abound messages.

Since coming to CKC, I have a renewed confidence and am overcoming challenges and obstacles to be who God declares me to be. The teaching is truly equipping the Saints and has helped me embrace who I am in-and-through Him. I have a new sense of rest and living by His GRACE!

Rest and Grace are a beautiful thing - so, a huge, sincere, wholehearted thank you Pastor Max and Molly - for your on-going sacrifices, service, and the love, grace, and dedication you show us all. I look forward to greater fruitfulness through extravagant worship and fellowship together!"

"Pastor Max came to the hospital and prayed for healing for my adult son Rex. It saved his life and he shares about the power of God and healing. Charis Church changed my life in so many ways. Being part of the healing team blessed me more than I can explain. What I say to my friends is God is not mad at you and He wants you well. Thank you for the most powerful teaching I have ever heard. Thank you church family for your amazing love. And thank you Kasey for the worship that blesses me every day."

"My husband and I were looking for a church where a clear Gospel message was preached EVERY Sunday. Not the "get saved now, come down to the altar" message, which so many think is how you preach "Gospel" time, for new people, and then on to the "real" stuff. We desired to hear the Gospel in every message, on every topic, in every area of our lives! You begin and continue and end all in God's GRACE. My husband and I couldn't find a church like this, and had been trying to just be on our own watching online sermons and doing Bible Study together, but we craved community and fellowship with other Christians like us. We stumbled across a YouTube video of Pastor Max, then saw Charis Church on our Facebook newsfeed. So, we decided to visit that next Sunday. We've been coming to CKC now for almost a year!!! We love the community at church, in small group studies, the young adult group, and conversations with other members. Thank you for inviting us into your family!"

"F R E E D O M ! In one word, that would be it. Don and I started attending this church about 6 months ago. Each week I am amazed at how many layers of truth are revealed in the short time we are together.

Being a 65 y.o. female, and learning, hearing, studying the Bible for over 50 years, much of it taught by men; I had many conversations with God about the confusing scriptures I had seen about women in the WORD. Just when I thought I understood my place in the Kingdom, I would eventually hear another teaching and question once again, my understanding of God's view of women, and how we were supposed to act in church.

This past week we were listening to the CD series called TIES, the 5th one was taught in June of 2017. When I realized that a simple set of quotation marks made the difference between night and day in the intent of what Paul had written....WOW! I wish you could have been in the car with us when that revelation hit home in my spirit.

Never again will I be confused about GOD's view of women and how we are created. Where the Spirit of the LORD is, there is indeed freedom. AND the Truth will set you free. I can say this, as well as many other truths I have heard taught at Charis in Olathe, have set me free. Thank You."

Praise our faithful Lord! Pastor Max had a word of wisdom during service this morning someone was being healed in the right eye - that was me! I had been suffering with severe eye pain in my RIGHT EYE for several days. My right eye was extremely red, itchy, painful, and burning - and the discomfort was not helped with eye drops, cold eye compresses, eye antihistamine drops, or allergy meds. As the word was sent out, my right eye was INSTANTLY HEALED - delivered from all redness, itching, pain, burning, and discomfort . My eye health was restored!

He is Faithful to heal every disease among His people. I am SO thankful for God's promises and love, His faithful servants, and our new church home - what an awesome FAMILY He has planted us in!!!
