Learning from Military Leaders - Tim Cummings Facilitating
Teacher/Facilitator: Tim Cummings
What can we learn from the military leaders identified in the Bible?
Throughout God's Word, He presents to us real people and shows how their faith defined them. In honor of Veterans' Day 2020, we will take a look at some of the military leaders who appear in the Bible and see what we can learn from their experiences with the Living God.
About Tim Cummings
Tim Cummings describes his calling as an evangelist to business people. His key question in business is "Why". It is important to seek to know what God is determined to accomplish through us - it is a matter of purpose!
His business career had its beginnings with him sweeping floors and packing boxes in the family sign business at age of nine. Working in the family business was augmented by stints as a service station "pump jockey", florist delivery driver, door-to-door card salesman, and a variety of other entrepreneurial enterprises. In the area of education, Tim attended Vanderbilt School of Engineering and the Owen Graduate School of Management, receiving a BS in Engineering and an MBA in four years while on an ROTC Scholarship.
Military assignments included duties with a Port Construction Company, as commander of an Army Diving Detachment and Battalion S-1 (Personnel Officer) and Company Commander of a Combat Engineer Company on the East German border.
Over the past 50+ years, he has worked in all aspects of the sign industry including securing a patent in Neon processing. During this period in the family business, Tim became a certified Quality Instructor under the Philip Crosby Quality Process.
After leaving the sign business, Tim launched Cummings Enterprises, a business consulting service, and Dynamic Communications, a web-based communications business providing communications services for membership organizations. In 2003 Tim was approached by the Institute for Independent Business for consideration as a mentor for small to medium businesses. After successfully being vetted and attending their residential training course, he received credentials as a mentor and has been focused on assisting other businesses to be successful.
Throughout Tim's engagement in the market place, he has been driven to apply his Christian faith and world view to his business endeavors, a focus he acquired from his own father's example. As he thinks back over his business career, he can clearly see the hand of a loving God, guiding, directing, and equipping him for each new endeavor. Among his current engagements, he serves as secretary for the Board of CBL Roundtable and coordinates a career group, Sabbatical Search, which approaches views the time between work assignments as a God-gifted sabbatical and approaches the job search from a Biblical perspective.
Tim is an 8th generation Nashvillian and is married to Vickie Lee Cummings and together they have a large family of 12 children (including the spouses), 12 grandchildren and 4 great-grandchildren.
