Event Reviews

"Andrew communicates a deep love for the work of pregnancy help and the local church in an engaging and thought-provoking way. His down-home style undergirds a powerful clarity on the vital mission of helping women at-risk. You'll be blessed to have Andrew inform and inspire your community."

— -Jor-El Godsey, President, Heartbeat International

"Andrew spoke at our pregnancy medical center’s banquet and did a phenomenal job conveying the heartbeat of CareNet while enlightening those in attendance about the importance of the work that we do in our community. His compelling message was delivered with grace, simplicity and in a way that touched the hearts of those who heard him to not only feel led to learn more about our mission, but to also find it in their hearts to support us through a financial donation or by partnering with us in other ways. Andrew is an amazing speaker who does an exceptional job tailoring his message to fit the audience he is speaking to."

— Margaret Cole, CareNet Pregnancy Medical Center, TN

"Our staff and board truly appreciated his time pre-event and willingness to help us improve our banquet and zone in on the key aspects to create a wonderful and successful evening for our supporters...We exceeded our goal and I am proud to say we were quickly able to find and purchase a new location thanks to to funds raised at our event. We also have several men lined up to serve under our new male mentor when the Lord provides the right person. We believe that will be soon as God is preparing centers to serve more than ever before... I highly recommend Andrew Wood not only as an event speaker, but as friend in the ministry, and a powerful pro-life apologetic... I also appreciate his appreciation of history and urgent political updates from a biblical perspective. His calm spirit, direct approach, and value for the sanctity of life will bless your ministry and encourage you as a leader."

You demonstrated a genuine personal desire to help solve our problem. After we selected a speaker, you made the process easy instead of requiring us to jump through numerous hoops. — CTI Group Adventure
