In 2002, Cody and Misty Hull were born again believers simply existing. They were making ends meet and supporting their family, but their life and faith showed little else in the way of promising fruit. Misty worked as an in-home nanny, and Cody was pursuing a career in emergency services as a paramedic/firefighter in the Fort Worth, Texas area. The Hulls were looking for more from life and from their relationship with God. Misty's mother, recognizing the couple's desire to grow in the Lord, introduced them to Andrew's ministry by giving them his book, Living in the Balance of Grace and Faith; it was just the jumpstart the couple's faith needed.
The Hull's hunger to know God more intimately began to grow and they started to consider going to bible school to broaden their understanding. Roughly one month after giving Cody and Misty the book, Misty's mother invited them to go to Colorado Springs to attend Andrew's Summer Family Bible Conference. The two agreed to go, and they went without any knowledge that Andrew had founded Charis Bible College.
As the two sat and listened to the Word for four days, they realized God was confirming to each of them that there was more available than they were experiencing. The Hulls recognized that they were right where they needed to be. "In Texas Misty and I had been looking into other bible schools, so we believe God orchestrated the whole trip," said Cody.
By the end of the conference the couple had enrolled at CBC. After two weeks the Hulls had quit their jobs back in Texas, and within a month of receiving God's call on their lives, they had moved their family to Colorado. The couple graduated in 2004 and completed their apprentice year in 2005.
After completing the CBC program in Colorado, the Hulls joined fellow graduates, Tom and Cindy Boyd, in their move east to launch a CBC extension school in Atlanta, Georgia. Misty and Cody spent two years serving the people of Georgia and watching their lives be transformed by the Word. This sparked a desire in their hearts to see the transformation continue by launching another extension school.
The Hulls, fully submitted to the vision of AWM's World Outreach program, wasted no time making plans to launch a school in Kansas City, Missouri, the doors of which opened in August of 2007. Over the past four years they have enjoyed watching the Word transform their students' lives. "It has been tremendous to see how each student receives the Word depending on what they believe God for. It has been as simple as seeing themselves entirely different than when they arrived, to as miraculous as seeing them receive physical healing by listening to the teachings," said Cody.
Before attending CBC the Hulls were making ends meet and nothing more. Now they are having an eternal impact on every person they encounter as they share the almost-too-good-to-be-true news. "This transformation is what we wanted to be a part of in peoples' lives," said Cody.
