In 1985 Andrew gave his life to the Lord and started his walk with Jesus. When he began working in the music ministry singing the songs of Zion, his life began to change. He was appointed the director of the mass choir of the 2nd Armor Division at Fort Hood, Texas. When he was reassigned in Virginia he volunteered in the Outreach for Christ program. The group reached out to those who did not Christ as their personal savior and shared the gospel with them and offered the plan of Salvation. When he was relocated to Germany, he was elected vice president of the Martin Luther Singers in Frankfurt. He was also appointed the director of the male chorus in Frankfurt’s Atterberry Chapel.

Male Choir ministry is more than singing. The group has been involved in prison outreach ministry, nursing homes and ministering to the homeless. The ministry is to help young boys who are lost and need the Lord in their life. It is to give hope to those who are seemingly hopeless.
