Angela Cummings

Great Awakening in my hometown at UTC

Oct. 29, 30, 31 (3 news stations showed up on my 2nd day preaching there. Channel 9 news reported at 5 p.m that "1,000 students showed up.")

I left after that, went to Arkansas to preach all week. Felt God call me to drive back 600 miles to preach 3 more weeks because 2 reporters contacted me after leaving UTC. I went out of obedience to God, not because I wanted to be there.

Nov. 2013 (Within the 1st 15 minutes of preaching my first day back to UTC a student on his bike was arrested. I did not interfere with the police, because my job is to preach the gospel. The police were there because UTC campus put them there. UTC MOCkers earned the name "Mocs." The campus has a scripture in free speech area stating they used to be Zion Bible college with class scripture Philippians 2:15 "That ye may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation: among whom ye shine as lights in the world."  Time to live up to that word, UTC. Repent!

"Hundreds of students have circled around Cummings, laughing, taunting, shouting, asking irreverent questions- even singing "Why you gotta be so mean?"

Title was awesome: "Her Cross to bear: The story behind the street preacher trying to save UTC."

"On Monday, LT. John Boe of the UTC police department, which provides Cummings and her audiences with security, stood near the preacher with a loudness meter. Her voice occasionally spiked higher than 70 decibels in volume, in same league as lawn mowers and wood shop vacuum cleaners, but tended to stay in the 60's range. Hicks said the university has been using Chattanooga city code as its noise volume model, which states that no permitted unamplified activity should exceed 70 decibels."

 April 14, 2014 David Cobb "Permission to speak? UT policy would restrict street preachers, others who want to speak on campus" "The new policy could bring an end to the days of street preachers such as Angela Cummings, who caused controversy on the UTC campus in NOV. with loud tactics that campus ministries frown on and that some students dub 'hate speech'. "
