An interview with Pastor John:
Around October 24th, Pastor John suffered a severe heart attack that nearly killed him. Some heart attacks are called “widow makers.” He had a heart cath and a stent was placed. About ten days later, that stent collapsed, causing him to have to undergo yet another heart cath with another stent placed. He nearly died a second time.
Pastor John has had to postpone many of his scheduled speaking engagements for the next six weeks until he is cleared to work. He is in need of help, there is no income for his family other than Pastor John. This humble man of God who gives so much hope and wisdom to others is struggling. His faith and trust in Jesus and God has not faltered through this crisis. Please consider the Go Fund Me below…..and please, would you share it with others. He is the one who needs the hand up now. As he has preached, there is a time to sit back and allow yourself to be humble and accept the help of others…and that time is his now.
Contact Pastor John through John Collins Ministries site email, he would be happy to talk to you.

HEART ATTACK STOPS PASTOR JOHN COLLINS, INFLUENTIAL PASTOR AND EVANGELIST
Pastor John Collins is an amazing man who has been through a lot in his lifetime. Never one to ask for help himself, we are asking for help for him and his family.
John suffered a heart attack about three weeks ago, nearly died. He had a stent placed, and about ten days later it collapsed and he had a second one placed. What insurance he had was used up, and he and his family are struggling with the outstanding medical bills as well as keeping their home, vehicle and filling his much needed prescriptions to prevent another heart attack!!
The total bills are estimated at over $50k. We are looking for even a portion of the outstanding balance, medical co-payments, vehicle coverage, prescriptions, food and utilities. We estimate a needed $25000 as quickly as possible.
John is known as one of the top influential pastors in the United States today. He is a family man, and he is true to his faith, Jesus, and God. He has always said that hope is like sunshine, everyone needs a ray of it. Right now, our team is that hope and sunshine for Pastor John and his family.
John is not able to work until he is cleared by the cardiologist. He travels the country speaking and preaching and has had to cancel his engagements for at least the next six weeks.
ABOUT PASTOR JOHN
There are hundreds of people who have been helped by Pastor John, being given a hand up, not a hand out. These are testimonies, some paraphrased from people who have been given a hand up by Pastor John:
My daughter was involved in an abusive relationship and drugs. My young granddaughter was placed in a bad situation. He helped raise money to allow me to go to Arizona to pick up my granddaughter and fly her back East to live with me. I couldn’t have done it without his help.
I had no wood for my wood-stove. It had snowed, I had no heat but running my kitchen stove and my pipes were freezing. Pastor John made arrangements without my knowledge and a load of wood was delivered and stacked so that I could get my home heated.
I recently lost my home to a fire. We had no clothing, our personal items were all gone. A local group delivered personal items, food, and clothing for all of us. I later found out it was because of Pastor John.
The child was alone after school and before school. Her dad was a single parent struggling to make ends meet. They fed her then they found before and after school care for her, at no cost. It let my neighbor continue to work and keep custody of his daughter, with no involvement from Children’s Protection Services.
He has a passion for relatively unknown musicians who have talent. He has been known to promote them and find sponsors for them, allowing them to grow a career they otherwise would never have.
They gave me a truck with no expectation for payment. It allowed me to put my construction business back on track. I was able to get my life back on track.
I had a heroin addiction. I kept going back to my family and the neighborhood I lived in where I became an addict. He found a way to have me admitted to a rehab center that according to the inpatient center I was in had no openings. I spent three months there, and I’m not an addict anymore.
My aunt had been blind because of diabetes for years. She could see nothing. She went to hear him preach that Sunday, and she came home able to see!! She has been doing things for others ever since and thanking God for all of it. She has her vision! The man worked a miracle!
I had a record that should have had me in prison for 5 to 10 years. After speaking to the officer on the case, I was allowed to serve community service. That just doesn’t happen. I was able to be admitted to a psych center for six months and now I am able to work and make restitution for my actions. It never would have happened without him.
We lost our home because of my abusive partner. My sons and I found a home, but I had no money for beds. If I didn’t get beds, my sons would have been placed in foster care. A bedding company delivered four mattresses, foundations, frames and bedding! Pastor John made that possible!
I thought my life was good, that I had everything I needed and wanted, but I wasn’t happy. I had not been to a church in many years because of bad experiences and feeling like something was missing. I went to a service that Sunday, feeling pretty skeptical about “a man of God” and an evangelist. His sermon broke my heart, I cried throughout it. At the altar call, I was one of many who went forward. Afterward, he took the time to talk to me and provided counseling for the depression I was experiencing. I accepted Jesus back into my life because of Pastor John. My life has become one of service and personal reward since then.
Pastor John Collins has taken a stand on drug addictions. Having first-hand experiences with people who have addictions to heroin, Pastor John Collins will go to the extreme to help someone get help when they decide that the addiction has to go. Heroin addiction is an epidemic in many areas of the United States. Pastor John Collins takes a stand that it is time to help alleviate and heal the heroin addiction epidemic. He worked with my son, and my son has been clean for four years.
