Cummins said that the position is a natural transition from what his similar organization, “Come Pray With Me,” has been accomplishing locally since the Spring of 2010.
“I just did not see things going to the national level so quickly,” Cummins said about his appointment in a written release. “I will still hold my position as pastor of Bridlewood Church while working nationally on major issues concerning the nation.”
In the late spring 2010, Cummins began organizing East Texas churches to attend “Come Pray With Me” rallies with the objective to pray for the spiritual and political direction of the nation.
In August 2011, he and his wife JoAnn were on the mobilization staff for “The Response USA,” a prayer rally called for by Texas Gove. Rick Perry in which more than 43,000 filled Houston’s Reliant Stadium on Aug. 6, 2011.
In May of this year Cummins organized “Washington – A Man of Prayer” in Statuary Hall of the nation’s Capitol.
It was the first time in more than 100 years that a private Christian organization had been granted permission, by present Speaker of the House John Boehner, to hold services in The Great Hall. The event honored the 223rd Inaugural Anniversary of President George Washington. Cummins had the congressional sponsorship of Rep. Louie Gohmert. Cummins began working closely with Garlow, who was a keynote speaker at the event.
