Many families from across the globe gathered in Colorado during the week of July Fourth to attend Andrew's annual Summer Family Bible Conference. Over the course of the five-day event, the festivities were spread between the ministry's current campus in Colorado Springs, nearby Charis Christian Center and Charis Bible College's future campus in Woodland Park, Colorado.
Andrew taught a new series about the meaning of the cross of Christ called, Power of The Cross. He ministered things the Lord has revealed to him over the years, but that he had not previously shared publicly. He opened the meeting on Monday night by asking the crowd, which filled the auditorium of Charis Christian Center and spilled into several overflow rooms, "What does the cross mean to you? What does it mean to cling to the cross?" And, in true Andrew fashion, he went on to say that religion has made the cross a cliché, that most people don't understand what the Bible means when it refers to the cross of Christ.
As Andrew's revelation of the meaning of the cross carried through the week, he also shared the platform with a number of other guest ministers; each shared blessed messages and revelation of God's unconditional love and grace with those in attendance, both physically and via live broadcast over the internet.
