Duane Collins Biography

I was born with a love of music. I learned to sing and play musical instruments and gave my heart to Christ at the age of nine or ten. However, I later became a professional musician and played secular music with several bands in and around Tulsa, Oklahoma.

During that time, I strayed away from Jesus.  However, in 1978, my brother Jimmie invited me to join The Gospel Singing Collins Family in Branson, Missouri. From that day forward, my faith began to be renewed and God began to bless me with the writing of Gospel Music.

Now, our ministry (my wife Peggy and me) includes writing and recording Gospel Songs, and the writing of topical books, pamphlets, newsletters and "current event" newspaper articles. All of which are based on the Gospel of Jesus Christ ---- and Isaiah's admonition, "Prepare the way of the Lord, make straight paths for Him."

It is our desire that through the Common Man Ministry and "The Voice of the Common Man" Newsletter, you will find your purpose through Jesus Christ. The purpose, that God intended for you before you were even born.

We would love to hear from you.  Our e-mail address:


Abortion and Same-Sex Marriage: How can a moral wrong be considered a civil right?

As of  October 13, 2020 we have allowed more than 62.3 million  babies to be aborted (murdered) in the United States.  Most of them were aborted because the mother did not want to be "burdened" with a baby.  The current rate of abortion in America is one every 32 seconds!  And think about this: 38% of those aborted babies are black, and yet, only 12% of our population is black.  If the Black Lives Matter organization truly cared about black lives . . . why aren't they marching against Planned Parenthood, and demanding they stop aborting babies of all colors!  All lives matter and are precious in the eyes of God. 

The population of the United States is estimated to be 317.3 million (317,297,938) as of January 2014.  Therefore, we have murdered more than 19% of our population since the Roe v. Wade decision in 1973, where seven Supreme Court Judges decided that abortion was an individual's legal right in America. 

People today are more concerned about protecting animals and little fish than they are about protecting precious little innocent unborn babies who cannot speak for themselves, nor can they defend themselves against evil people.  We call ourselves a civilized nation, but our actions are barbaric.

This nation will never prosper until we stop the slaughter of these innocent babies.  Every pastor in every church should be preaching about this atrocity on every Sunday morning until it is brought to an end........ but most don't.  Tell your pastor and your elected government officials, "Stop Aborting Babies Now!” 

Abortion and the Homosexual Lifestyle is all part of Satan's plan to destroy God's greatest creation . . . Human Beings . . . all of whom are made in God's own image.  But there is redemption through Jesus Christ if we will repent, turn from our sinful ways, and get back into the fellowship of God – and Jesus is the only way to God the Father.

“If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land” (2 Chronicles 7:14 KJV).
