In his late teens, on March 23, 1968, Andrew had an encounter with God that transformed his life. In this encounter God flooded Andrew with His love and this radically changed his life.

After this experience Andrew made the life-changing decision to leave college, this resulted in him being sent to Vietnam. On his return to the United States, in 1972, he married his wife, Jamie. For the next six years he taught Bible Studies and pastored three small churches. They have two grown sons, Joshua, and Jonathan. Jonathan passed away and was raised back from the dead as Andrew and Jamie stood in faith.

In 1976, Andrew broadcasted his first Gospel Truth radio program on a little station in Childress, Texas. His ministry vision is to teach the truth of the Gospel to the body of Christ worldwide, emphasizing God’s Unconditional Love and the balance between Grace and Faith.

In January 2000, Andrew broadcasted the first Gospel Truth television program. He now reaches a potential daily viewing audience of over 3 billion people.
