Love & Grace
Andrew Wommack — Founder and President of Andrew Wommack Ministries
March 23, 1968, was the day that Andrew Wommack’s life changed forever. God showed him just what supernatural love was really about, and Andrew’s theology transformed.

He has written nearly forty books and hundreds of lessons. He began broadcasting the Gospel of grace and healing through his Gospel Truth television program and expanded in the digital age with his internet television network GospelTruth.TV and his website, awmi.net.

What started as a vision in a small building has grown to more than fifty campuses around the world and thousands of students learning to walk in the power of God.

Andrew and his wife, Jamie, have been married for nearly fifty years.
