Performer, worship leader joins Hope for the World

As he got older, Mullins worked more and more on his music, and the family was asked to do concerts with other Christian artists. They were part of Bill Gaither's Praise Gathering event in Indiana and appeared on many of Gaither's Homecoming videos.

Eventually Mullins was contacted by Gaither and Michael English about joining the Gaither Vocal Band as new lead singer when English's solo career was too busy for both positions.

"These were some great times and very busy times flying all over the country to catch up with whichever group I was performing with at the moment," Mullins said. "I am so honored to have had the opportunity to work with Bill and I am still a part of a few things each year with the Gaithers."

For many of those years, Mullins felt his calling was to encourage believers from the platform, but he said he became focused on building his own career.

"There’s nothing wrong with doing that either, but somewhere along the way the latter became a greater pursuit than the former," he said. "I never lost my love for ministry; it just got overshadowed by self."

As God stepped into his life, Mullins career was put on hold.
