My name is Dr. Charles "Chic" Shaver and I am presently serving Christ as an evangelist commissioned by the Church of the Nazarene.
My most common ministry is to be engaged by a local church to hold a spiritual renewal week, also called a revival. It is a time of spiritual intensity usually resulting in considerable spiritual break through and progress by individuals.
Most often, we begin on Saturday with a four hour seminar on Witnessing Without Fear or Lord, Teach Us to Pray. Then Sunday morning and Sunday through Wednesday nights there is preaching. In most of these services there is a clear call made for spiritual commitment.
Other ministries I do include:
Camp Meetings - Involves preaching or teaching once or twice a day for a week. Multiple churches (from 10-100) are encouraged to participate.
Lay Retreats - Where I speak for a weekend to laity from many churches.
Pastor Training in Evangelism Usually taught on a 2 or 3 day block. Some churches have brought me in for six weeks and taken me, each week, to a smaller zone on the district.
Pastor and Spouses Retreats To help and encourage pastor families.
Guest Ministries of Evangelism A local church calls me to their city for four months of training for their pastors and key laity in personal evangelism.
Evangelism Conferences Speaking engagements
Witnessing without Fear Seminars A four hour seminar to help people get over the fear of witnessing.
I offer to go on personal witness calls in most of the above situations.
Most places wish me to bring books, CD's, and DVDs. I've authored on witnessing, discipleship, and Bible study. These cover a wide range from Basic Bible Studies for New Christians to People, Sex, and God to Living in the Power of the Spirit, to Witnessing Without Fear.
I have preached and taught in Billy Graham schools, Interdenominational camps, Nazarene, United Methodist, Wesleyan and Baptist Churches, Church of God (Holiness), Friends, and the Salvation Army.
