Caris Ministries is the prophetic and teaching ministry of Jeremy and Mandy Caris, with a mission to equip people to hear, know, and follow God. They have both served “behind-the-scenes” in ministry the majority of their lives. Jeremy began full-time in ministry by serving as an associate pastor—teaching, preaching, and overseeing various areas of the local church. They are now embracing their calling to equip the body of Christ worldwide and are honored to come alongside, to serve, and to partner with other leaders, churches, and ministries to see the culture of heaven established in a greater measure.
Jeremy Caris is the founder and president of Caris Ministries. Since he is called as a prophet and gifted as a teacher, much of his focus involves equipping believers to hear, know, and follow God in their own daily experience. He teaches the foundational truth of the Word with simple clarity, while revealing deep things of the spirit in practical ways. He has the unique ability to demystify the supernatural side of real relationship with a living God and make it an embraceable and accessible reality for all believers. Jeremy has been married to his best friend, Mandy Caris, for eighteen years, and is the proud father of two boys.
Mandy Caris is a relational leader with strong prophetic insight. She has a unique ability to disarm emotional barriers and guarded hearts while drawing out the giftings and talents of others. She loves art of all forms, but thrives on Holy Spirit inspired creativity. She is intense and passionate about those she loves, but most of all, she is a deep-hearted worshipper and lover of God. She is the proud mother of two growing boys.
There are foundational values that establish the lens or perspective through which we see and minister—the basis for all that we teach and do. Our foundational values are:
- The goodness of God
- The finished work of Christ
- The present work of the Holy Spirit
- The ministry of all believers
There are six keys to the type of culture that we aspire to create and cultivate in our lives and through our ministry. We want to build an atmosphere around us that influences people to feel:
- Approved for action, not inferior in status, potential, or capability.
- Bold to believe and take chances, not discouraged with doubt and restrained with caution.
- Confident in God, not enamored with men, methods, or systems.
- Daring with love, not pursuing selfish benefits.
- Empowered to create, never controlled, confined, or restrained.
- Free to be authentic, not pressured to conform to any mold aside from Christ.
