Kharis Movement set to invade campuses

A spiritual movement, The Kharis Movement, aimed at taking the gospel of Jesus Christ to campuses has been launched colourfully at the University of Ghana Campus, Legon.

And beginning in February 2019, the leadership of Kharis Centre International are expected to meet at Legon to roll out its program, which would be held quarterly for the year.

It was gospel musician, Josh Laryea, lead pastor of Kharis Centre International and the convenor of The Kharis Movement that launched the movement.

To Pastor Laryea, the movement was geared towards tertiary students due to the fact that it is the highest stage of education where great ideas are harnessed.

He said in a post-launch interview “We believe that the university is main hub for cross-fertilizing great ideas, inventing or executing them and living them.

“All we seek to do is to build a collaborative force as Joel prophesied about the end time army ready to take our nation and the world at large for Jesus.

“Churches must preach messages of grace rather than that which condemns oneself.”

He added “The church has lost focus, we have lost directions just like the Galatians churches. We preach self-condemnation and not the liberty of the Spirit. We preach righteousness by effort and not as a gift of God.

“We preach materialistic temporal value and not Spiritual and internal values. We preach greed and manipulation and not contentment and love. We preach that the measure of success is not different from the secular one. If the people have lost focus we have made it so.”

Pastor Gilbert Osei of Yachal House, Apostle Francis Kodua, Christ Life Kingdom Ministries, USA graced the well attended event.
