CCM Artist Tim Timmons on Big Beards, Big Baldness, Big Glasses, Life, and Worship as An Ex-Professional Varsity Christian

Tim Timmons’ life has always been one of adventure, but for the first time, the singer/songwriter feels awake enough to actually live it. After nearly two decades of ministry and a lifetime as a believer, Timmons is no stranger to the tenets of the Christian faith. Now he finds himself moving beyond believer to follower, awake and alive to the nearness of Jesus. His sophomore album, Awake Our Souls(Reunion Records), is a portrait of Timmons’ own awakening and an invitation for every listener to discover the abundant life beyond belief.

“We talk about all these things I’ve known about my whole life—like freedom in Jesus and overwhelming joy—but I’ve never known it until now, and it’s just this awakening in my soul,” the singer shares. “The goal of this record is to invite people into a new reality of the Kingdom of God that is around us all the time. Here are ten songs—ten prayers—that help me practically live in the availability and the truth of God’s Kingdom,” he says. “It’s a huge concept—the Kingdom of God… We have power, but who lives as though the same spirit that raised Jesus from the dead lives inside of us? Jesus is saying, ‘You can do anything I did.’”

In this episode, John Chisum yuks it up with the very affable Timmons and talks about Timmons’ recent spiritual awakening from professional Christian to authentic believer and how it’s affected his entire life, ministry, family, songwriting, and world outlook. Armed with a new contentment in his soul, Timmons’ songs have taken on a whole new depth that is nothing short of incendiary to passive, cultural Christianity.
