Bunni Pounds show page
Bunni Pounds
Speaker | Political Consultant | Motivational speaker
Growing up a Pastor’s kid, Bunni had religion but she didn’t have life. At the age of 13 and 14, God met her in such powerful ways that she was ruined for “ordinary” Christian living and saw the power of the simple gospel.
A graduate of Christ for the Nations Bible Institute and later Dallas Baptist University, Bunni has been active in Christian ministry since she was a teenager – leading worship, songwriting, teaching the Bible, pastoring, doing missions and evangelism.

She finished her political science degree at the age of 32 as a homeschooling mom. Starting her political career as the campaign manager for U.S. Congressman Jeb Hensarling for over 8 years, she then launched her own firm, Bunni Pounds & Associates in 2015 to help elected officials and candidates throughout Texas.
At the end of 2017 when her former boss, Congressman Jeb Hensarling, announced his retirement from Congress, Bunni desperately tried to find a qualified and principled conservative leader to fill his shoes. Coming up short – she felt a call to run herself and plunged herself into a Congressional race that she never saw coming.
In the end – she made it through a field of 8 primary candidates into the Republican Primary runoff - a race of just two people - but came up slightly short.

Married for 23 years to Tim Pounds, they have 2 young adult sons – Israel, married to their Romanian daughter-in-law Teo, and Ben, who is about to marry Giulia, originally from Brazil.
Bunni’s greatest calling is to lead people into an intimate daily walk with Jesus. Through her adventures of walking with Jesus, He has opened doors for her to be a voice to our nation and the nations of the earth.
