Our Mission

Charis (Greek: Χάρις) - khar'-ece : is a given name derived from a Greek word meaning "grace, kindness, and life."

  1. grace -that which affords joy, pleasure, delight, sweetness, charm, loveliness: grace of speech

  2. good will, loving-kindness, favour - of the merciful kindness by which God, exerting his holy influence upon souls, turns them to Christ, keeps, strengthens, increases them in Christian faith, knowledge, affection, and kindles them to the exercise of the Christian virtues


The mission of Charis House Leadership Retreats is to ensure that all who visit, for the purpose of personal or professional growth, can walk away with a greater appreciation for the charis we’ve been extended since birth.


Take from it what you will…


Leadership and Coaching Sessions:

“Where there is no vision, the people parish.”  The work of Charis House Leadership  Retreats is designed to support leaders in fortifying their vision for their organization.  @CharisHouseLR we help you craft your vision, plan for it, and then realize it.  Organizations are only as strong as the plan the leaders have designed for it and their ability to equip others in executing the vision. Allow us to support you in making your vision an organizational reality.

The Event and Retreat Experience:

The event and retreat experiences are just that, an experience. Welcome to Charis House, a space designed to celebrate togetherness, milestones, and positive human interactions. Our lives are marked by celebrations and events.  Our desire is to layer every experience with charis. We provide space for private gatherings that will allow you to entertain with class and style.  Looking for a warm homey space to entertain, come experience the Charis House Space.  Wanting to host a stylish garden party or backyard BBQ?  Allow us to support you in hosting and/or planning your event.  Our private dining experience is beyond reproach, if that’s your desire, allow us to create a personalized menu for you and your guest. We offer space to host your next birthday, retreat, book club, graduation, or holiday party.  When you think private entertaining, think Charis House.
