Andrew is the same man behind the pulpit and outside of it. I appreciate that about him so much. He and Jamie are some of the best friends Loretta and I have. When we see each other, we always take up where we left off.

I believe Andrew makes me a better minister. I strive harder to teach the Word when I hear him speak. He brings out the best in me as a minister, as he does with other ministers, students, and people he speaks to. There’s only one Andrew Wommack.”
