This special arm of Andrew Wommack Ministries is focused on discipling people around the world and demonstrating God’s unconditional love and grace. DEMO uses a program called Discipleship Evangelism (DE), written by Andrew Wommack and Don Krow, that allows us to train and mentor true disciples of Christ, instead of just creating converts. In addition to discipleship, our desire is to help demonstrate Christ by meeting the physical and practical needs of various people groups. Some of our projects have included drilling safe water wells, delivering medical supplies, and creating aquaponics food supply systems.

Special letter from Director Mark Rowe
Dear Friends, you may have stumbled upon this page by accident, or just clicked on the link wondering ‘what in the world is DEMO!?’ So, allow me to explain...
My name is Mark Rowe and I am the Director of DEMO (Discipleship Evangelism Missional Outreach), which is a new arm of Andrew Wommack Ministries focused on discipling people around the world. This we achieve by using the Discipleship Evangelism (DE) study guide, a program written by Andrew Wommack and Don Krow. In addition to discipling folks, our desire is to help them in practical ways and to demonstrate the love of Christ where we are able. In other words, simply put, Andrew’s desire is to ‘give people the Word, and teach them to fish’.
So, the aim of this section of the website is to keep you, our friends and partners, updated and informed as to the work of DEMO (Part 1, Part 2) for without your help and support none of what we do would be possible. Our aim is to share with you some of the stories of the lives, that together we can touch, and the communities we are privileged to impact and help transform, through the love of Jesus.
The current focus of our work is in Uganda in Central Eastern Africa, with an emphasis on the region of Karamoja. This region is an arid and hitherto dangerous place that forms the border between Uganda and Kenya, well known for cross border tribal conflicts. There is tremendous poverty in this region and the literacy rate among the Karamojong is only around 10%. Nevertheless, AWM has been discipling people in this corner of the world using the DE Program for approximately four years now, seeing many lives changed by God’s Word. Our desire is to spread out from Uganda to the surrounding countries with the ‘almost too good to be true news’ of Jesus’ love and grace, whilst practically demonstrating the love of Christ.
Allow me to share just one short story with you...
Esther, a 25-year-old mother of six children from the Pokot tribe in southern Karamoja, comes from the village of Komoret which sits in the shadow of mount Kadam rising 11,000 feet out of the bush. Esther would regularly walk the 15km or so to the town of Amudat, to the little PAGU (Pentecostal Assemblies of God of Uganda) church to be discipled by the AWM team on the ground there. This team of indigenous pastors supported by your generous giving, would make regular visits to Amudat to disciple people. I first met Esther in January 2014, at which time she could neither read or write. She pleaded with me at that time to visit her village of Komoret, and told me of their desperate need for water. I tried on three different occasions to reach her village, but each time we were prevented by weather or circumstances from making the journey. Finally, in May of 2016, I made it to Komoret with my young colleague Ricky Burge, and met with Esther again. I told her we would soon be surveying her village with a view to drilling a water well. She was thrilled, and we had an amazing reception from the villagers, and we have subsequently followed through on our promise and in of this year we installed a borehole and hand pump. But, that is not the most remarkable thing?
This time, Esther looked completely different, and in the space of less than three years through the DE program, Esther has learned to speak English, and to read through reading the Bible. And, if that wasn’t enough, she has planted three churches, started her own little business in the town of Amudat, and is the pastor of the church in her village of Komoret. Now that is a big deal! Particularly, in Pokot and Karamojong society where women tend to be viewed as possessions rather than partners to their menfolk!
I recently visited another of Esther’s church plants in the village of Kapetawoi, where we have recently installed a borehole and hand pump. I was reliably informed by Robert Olupot, Bishop of Karamoja, who accompanied us along with Esther, that this is the nearest water source for 40km, approximately 25 miles! The little church planted by Esther is pastored by Bosco a local man, who placed a hand-written letter in my hand imploring us to help them build a permanent structure. Apparently, whilst it doesn’t rain too often, when it does, the little mud built church gets washed away, and they have to start over again!
Let me share some of the achievements of DEMO over the last two years
So, stay tuned and visit regularly for future updates and thank you, on behalf of those all around the world that we are able to help because of your support and compassion. We can’t change the world, but we can change somebody’s world!
May God bless you – Mark.
