Club Focuses On Wommack Books
An informational meeting of the Andrew Wommack book club will be held Aug. 9 at 7 p.m. at the New Martinsville United Methodist Church. The club plans to meet each Tuesday at 7 p.m. at the church.
According to information provided on Wommack’s Web site, www.awmi.net, Wommack was raised in a Christian home and was born again at the early age of eight. Wommack believed that by his own righteousness and good works, he could develop his relationship with the Lord.
On a Saturday night in 1968, however, everything changed when Wommack had an encounter with God that changed his life forever. Wommack looked in the mirror and saw the reflection of a hypocrite. He began confessing his self-righteousness, expecting the wrath of God to fall. But instead, God’s presence flooded Wommack with love. “God’s love consumed me,” Wommack said. “When I was at my worst, God’s love was the strongest.”
After this encounter, Wommack decided to leave college to follow God’s leading in his life. Subsequently, he was drafted into the army and shipped to Vietnam, where he served as a chaplain’s assistant. As difficult and dangerous as things were on the front lines, this became a time that God used to ground Wommack in His Word and began establishing the course of his life.
Upon his return, Wommack submitted to God’s call to be a teacher of His Word. He and his wife, Jamie, began teaching Bible studies. They pastored three small churches and completed their family with two sons. In 1976 Wommack broadcast his first Gospel Truth radio program in Childress, Texas. Today, he is heard across the country.
The Wommacks moved their ministry to Colorado Springs, Colo., in 1980 and continued to follow God’s call with a clear vision: to teach the truth of the Gospel to the body of Christ with special emphasis on God’s unconditional love and the balance between grace and faith. In 1994 a cornerstone of their ministry was laid in place with the dedication of Charis Bible College–a college committed to equipping the saints for ministry by providing sound biblical teaching and practical “on-the-job” training. The college now has extended into other cities and countries as well as In-Church Bible Schools.
In January 2000, Andrew Wommack broadcast the first Gospel Truth television program on INSP Network and since then, DayStar Network and The Church Channel in the U.S., God Channel of Europe Network, and several individual television stations have been added.
Their ministry continues to expand as God provides more opportunities and resources to take God’s message to the world. The Wommacks continue to fulfill God’s call to teach through: seminars, churches, radio and television programs, training others at Charis Bible College, and developing ministry materials designed to help others in their relationship with the Lord. They consider it a privilege to have the opportunity to share the truth of His life-changing power and grace with others.
In addition to the many resources stated, Andrew Wommack has written dozens of books on the subject of God and His unconditional love and grace. For more information on the book club contact the Reverend Ken London at 304-758-5090. Anyone interested in participating in this book club is encouraged to attend. London states a similar book club could be held in the Sistersville area if such interest is expressed.
