GAZA ROAD MINISTRIES:
Founded in 2010, Gaza Road Ministries grew out of her passion for service. The name reflects her calling, modeled after Philip's encounter with the Ethiopian eunuch in Acts 8. In clear and convincing language Philip explained the way to salvation. Thus, the mission statement of Gaza Road Ministries is "Searching timeless Bible truths for today's applications."
A frequent speaker and presenter, Ms. Hawkins is a gifted teacher of Bible truths, making plain the work of God so that "none need err" in the way of understanding and wisdom. Her workshops, sermons, and other presentations reflect her enthusiasm, enjoyment, and passion for the study of the word of God.
She has published a devotional book for women and various other written materials.
