FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

-- Nashville, TN, January 16, 2015 /PressReleasePing/ -- For the first time in the 20 plus year history of the Inspirational Country Music Awards (formerly CCMA), the organization has decided to honor a deserving Evangelist each year who is not involved in music. The ICM Faith, Family & Country Association is dedicated to the further development of Christian and Inspirational Country Music. The majority of artists in the industry are also in ministry. They are often on the road for many weeks at a time. They too, need to be ministered to and have someone they can turn to for Spiritual guidance. Therefore, the ICM Association board has voted and created the Evangelist of the Year Award.
This year we were proud to present the recipient of this brand new award. The ICM/Power Source Music 2014 board recently presented Pastor John Collins with the inaugural 'Evangelist of the Year' award. Pastor John will be the 2015 official 'chaplain' for Power Source and ICM. He will make himself available to members for spiritual guidance, prayer requests, ministry questions and more.
Pastor John Collins has come alongside the ICM Association in support of the organization and its members. He has become a faithful prayer warrior to everyone involved. He attended his first ICM Week in November of 2014 and was touched by the numerous ministries in the Christian Country Music industry. So many or our artist depend on Churches, Pastors and Evangelists to book them and get the message out to the world. This past year, we were fortunate to be introduced to a man with a calling and a gift to Evangelize. We have now gotten to know Pastor John and have witnessed his heart, learned of his vision and his willingness to preach the truth and deliver the message of the Cross.
In the days and months ahead you will be hearing, reading and learning about Pastor John's ministry and outreach. This award is different than all of our other awards as it is the first combination award of Power Source Magazine and the ICM. This means this award will be used to advance Power Source Magazine and the Inspirational Country Music Association.
About Pastor John Collins
New Ministry - LOVE THAT CROSS
Pastor John Collins, along with associate Pastors Jeff White and Bernie Epplin, has launched Love That Cross Ministries.
Love That Cross believes in the written word of God in its entirety. 2 Timothy 3:16 says, "All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work."
We know that Jesus Christ is the Son of God and was sent to this world by God to die for our sins and was resurrected the third day. Jesus said, "Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature. He who believes and is baptized will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned." Mark 16:15-16. We believe that all Christians should be baptized, if it is possible, but that baptism should come with the age of maturity and a choice to leave behind the old life and begin to live a new life in Christ Jesus.
