A single seed has exponential power. A seed sown in good soil produces a harvest, bringing forth some thirty, some sixty, and some a hundredfold. One seed can reproduce an unknown harvest. The seed is the Word of God, but there must be one who is willing to sow the seed.

The Seeds of Transformation

Little did Andrew know that what started on March 23, 1968, in a weekly prayer meeting would go on to transform millions of lives. Andrew’s encounter with the love of God launched him into ministry and the spreading of the nearly-too-good-to-be-true news.

The Birth of a Unique Ministry

After decades of sharing the Gospel, Andrew heard the Lord say, “You’re just now starting your ministry.”

A Meeting That Changed Everything

Andrew then met Stephen Bransford, the current executive producer of television and media production, in 1999. With just $70,000 to get started in television, Stephen recognized that filming Andrew with a single camera would be the best approach for his teaching style. Stephen and his wife also bought Andrew the table and chair that he used on his first set, which he still uses today.

A Journey to Reach Millions

The first episode of The Gospel Truth aired January 3, 2000. In the beginning, the show only reached 3 percent of the U.S. population but has since grown to reach a potential audience of five billion people worldwide. Remarkably, the show still uses only one camera for filming!

A Milestone Celebration and Gratitude

On September 18, 2023, thanks to the financial support of our amazing partners, we’ll be airing the 5,000th original episode of The Gospel Truth television program. Thank you, partners, for making this incredible milestone possible. We’re so excited to celebrate this with you! That’s a total of five thousand unique episodes—or seeds—that have been sown into peoples’ lives.

The Ripple Effect of Discipleship

These episodes are going forth and multiplying our spread of the Gospel. True discipleship has a multiplication principle that is the most impactful form of evangelism.

Here’s how it works:

Let’s say one person watched one episode, and their life was radically transformed. In the year that followed, they shared this truth with one other person who got set free as well.

Keeping track of the numbers, we’d be at two people so far. But then in the second year, if those two people each reached one more person, that would double it to a total of four people. After that, in the third year, if those four people each reached one more person, that would double the number to eight. As this doubling went on and on, the effect would be exponential. See the chart below:

There are approximately eight billion people in the world today. That means in just thirty-four years, we could evangelize the entire world twice. Now you know why we feel so strongly about discipleship!

The Global Impact of Transformed Lives

Every transformed life that’s been touched by this ministry is having a ripple effect around the world, all because of one person’s revelation of God’s grace. Imagine what will happen as more and more individuals around the world get hold of The Gospel Truth!
