Hope Was Not Disappointed

Andrew Wommack ministeringAnticipation filled the atmosphere like a gasp suspended in air. For the hundreds who were present—some even putting their lives at risk to attend—their time had come. It was their turn to receive, and the altar was flooded with expectant believers tenacious about their miracles. Just like blind Bartimaeus, their hopes were not disappointed (Mark 10:46-52 and Rom. 5:5).

The when and where of healing’s beginning was explained along with other concepts taken from Andrew’s Spirit, Soul & Body teaching. Many had to address painful emotional issues and were, in turn, set free by the unconditional love and grace of God. People were able to break away from religious traditions and literally walk, jump, and run by the substance of what they hoped for.

Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

Hebrews 11:1

In the evenings, words of knowledge flowed, further sparking faith for healing. Andrew and fellow Charis Bible College instructors Barry Bennett, Greg Mohr, and Duane Sheriff all poured out a wealth personal revelation, sharing from Scripture and their own life experiences of the Word working for them. In one afternoon session, a panel of the speakers answered questions people had written down on three-by-five cards. It was both an enlightening and humorous time!

The four-day conference indeed lived up to its name, as “the power of the Lord was present to heal” (Luke 5:17). Various cancers and tumors, the effects of Alzheimer’s disease and Parkinson’s, partial and total blindness, and immune and nervous system disorders were corrected. One person who attended had this to say:

When I walked into the sanctuary on the first day, I felt like I had stepped into heaven! I was overwhelmed by how strong God’s presence was in the room—so much so, it didn’t really surprise me to see people getting up out of wheelchairs later on in the week. God is so good!

Other conditions such as diabetes, cerebral palsy, glaucoma, blood conditions, frozen joints, skeletal complications, heart problems, and even baldness had to submit to the power of God at work. Oxygen tanks, canes, and wheelchairs were no longer needed either, and God wasn’t done yet. Many long-distance healing testimonies came in as Charis locations live-streamed the event. God’s power transcended time and distance.

If your track record with healing has been hit and miss, you need a new experience. Watch sessions of Healing Is Here on the Charis website, in the August 2015 video archives: www.charisbiblecollege.org/news. Also, make plans to join us at this year’s event. In the meantime, tune in on Thursdays for Healing School with Carlie, Daniel, and many others: www.charisbiblecollege.org/watch-charis-live. You’ll receive weekly benchmark training in how to receive and minister healing to others!

Experience God with Us

God with UsA good story is timeless, no matter how many times it’s told. This couldn’t be truer than when referring to the Bible, the greatest story ever told, full of stories that are rich with twists and turns. This is the concept behind God with Us, the musical production that will be held at Charis Bible College in March 2016. It is written and directed by Robert and Elizabeth Muren, of Norway, Managing Directors of the AWM Theatre Company.

Robert and Elizabeth came to Charis Bible College having performed over 100 shows in seven countries. They toured Israel with a musical that they wrote called The Covenant. It has since been shown on Daystar Television, as well as performed in over fifteen countries around the world. They are currently in the beginning stages of a motion picture produced by Hollywood.

Reenacting Jesus' crucifixionOne of the things they have found is that there is a hunger among believers and non-believers alike to travel back in time and experience uplifting and powerful events up close. The lives of those highlighted in the Scriptures are still relevant today, and when brought to life through heartwarming songs, dazzling sets, and lively actors, audiences are in for an experience with the Bible that they’ll never forget.

Talented actors and singers will guide you on a unique journey through the events in history that have shaped lives for over 2,000 years. Laced throughout is evidence of a God who is relentless in rescuing His people.

If you’ve ever wanted to experience a Christian, Broadway-style musical, you don’t need to travel to the bright lights and big city to enjoy a spectacular production. Right here, in the mountains of Colorado, a sixty-member cast will take to the stage this March, bringing to life a series of powerful stories from the Bible, centered on God’s quest to deliver His people. You’ll be led on a powerful journey as you experience the slavery of Jochebed, follow Joshua as he leads the Israelites into the Promised Land, and witness as Esther risks her life to Robert and Elizabeth Murensave her people. This original musical drama then brings to a finale the Word becoming flesh in the person of Jesus. You’ll witness His miracles and the sacred moment when He becomes the ultimate sacrifice. It’s a beautiful theatrical experience sure to inspire and delight audiences of all ages.

Join us for God with Us, coming Easter 2016 to The Sanctuary in Woodland Park, Colorado. Mark your calendars for March 17-20, 2016, and don’t miss next month’s life-changing event! God with Us is a story so inspirational, it will make you laugh, smile, and cry, and it will put into perspective the reason we are saved. Go to www.awmi.net/events to find out more!

Andrew in the Community

These days, Andrew Wommack Ministries is reaching far regions of the world like Africa and China, but Andrew’s heart has never left the local community of Colorado Springs—the city his ministry has called home for over twenty years.

When Andrew transitioned from pastoring a small church to operating in a full-time teaching ministry, God gave him the freedom to live anywhere he wanted. The mountains of Colorado inspired him to put down roots and create a base for his growing ministry. From AWM being located in the Garden of the Gods area to Charis Bible College thriving in Woodland Park, Andrew’s long-term commitment to Colorado Springs and the surrounding area has produced rich rewards. Now, decades later, the fruit produced in the community can be readily seen.

Andrew believes in the importance of developing a history with the local community—contrary to the trend in our modern culture that promotes transience and individualism. He thinks that the exaltation of self is destroying the very fabric of our society. That’s why his ministry works closely with pastors and nonprofit organizations in the community, advancing the kingdom of God by preaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ through word and deed.

Although Andrew’s television broadcast, Gospel Truth, continues to expand and grow in popularity, he always encourages believers to find a good local church. He views fellowship with other believers as essential to a healthy Christian life. Andrew’s friendly relationship with the local church was evident at the recent celebration of Charis Christian Center’s fourteenth anniversary. For the past eleven years, he has been invited by Pastor Lawson Perdue to be a guest speaker at the annual event. This year, Andrew shared a timely word for the residents of Colorado Springs.

When a certain pastor moved to the Springs with the vision of planting a church, Andrew was one of the first ministers to welcome him. Today this pastor is an adjunct instructor at Charis. Other local pastors also teach at the college, further demonstrating the working together of ministries and community.

Andrew also encourages Charis students to build relationships and have an impact in the communities they live in while attending the college. The student body has been a great source of volunteers for community service in the area. The college’s philosophy is that every believer in Jesus is called to be a minister, and practical, hands-on serving is part of the Charis experience.

In addition to helping smaller, not-as-visible ministries, students in the volunteer program have served in local churches, homeless shelters, chaplaincy programs, home groups, and prison ministry. Several students have had the opportunity to volunteer for Mello Memories, a ministry on the outskirts of Colorado Springs that gives support to elderly, disabled, and disadvantaged individuals by visiting them with miniature horses for them to interact with. These friendly horses disrupt the monotony for nursing home residents while filling their lives with joy. Great things happen when willing hearts unite to share God’s love in a practical way.

It’s friends like you who help Andrew provide this ministry of taking the Gospel to our “Jerusalem…Judaea…Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth” (Acts 1:8). Thank you for your support!
