After service in the U.S. Army during the Korean War era and meeting his wife Ruby, he was wonderfully saved on June 8, 1955, while working for General Motors in Flint, Michigan. He immediately began winning souls and working for the Lord while attending Midwestern Baptist College in Pontiac, Michigan.

During his 52 years of ministry, he was the pastor of churches in Fresno, California and Hialeah, Florida. In 1971, he founded Andrew Evangelistic Association, launching a career of 38 years of full-time evangelism. During these 38 years, he preached in countless churches all over North America. Only God knows the number of souls saved as a result of his relentless zeal for the Lord's work.
During his evangelistic ministry, he received numerous honorary degrees and other accolades, made many friends, and inspired thousands to serve the Lord more effectively. His ministry will continue to impact the world through the hundreds of individuals who accepted God's call as a result of Dr. Hatch's preaching.
