I was born with a love of music. I learned to sing and play musical instruments and gave my heart to Christ at the age of nine or ten. However, I later became a professional musician and played secular music with several bands in and around Tulsa, Oklahoma.
During that time, I strayed away from Jesus. However, in 1978, my brother Jimmie invited me to join The Gospel Singing Collins Family in Branson, Missouri. From that day forward, my faith began to be renewed and God began to bless me with the writing of Gospel Music.
Now, our ministry (my wife Peggy and me) includes writing and recording Gospel Songs, and the writing of topical books, pamphlets, newsletters and “current event” newspaper articles. All of which are based on the Gospel of Jesus Christ —- and Isaiah’s admonition, “Prepare the way of the Lord, make straight paths for Him.”
It is our desire that through the Common Man Ministry and “The Voice of the Common Man” Newsletter, you will find your purpose through Jesus Christ. The purpose, that God intended for you before you were even born.
