Tim Cummings is an evangelist to business owners and entrepreneurs. Through his business, Cummings Enterprises, Tim assists business people "to speak out their vision for their business and execute it in proper sequence". When they are Christians, he assists them in implementing ways to minister to the marketplace through their businesses.
This business focus has come out of an understanding that God created everything, except for man, by speaking it into existence. He then created man in His own image. This means that we create by speaking into existence. The Bible tells us that where there is no vision, the people perish. The corollary to this is true as well … where there is a vision, the people prosper. Tim’s greatest joy is to see others be successful in the market place.
