Lead Pastor Steve Hawkins & wife Karla

  Lead Pastor Steve Hawkins and his wife Karla are the proud parents of four children: Ariane, Daniel, Anjuli and Dustin.

Pastor Hawk, (as he is affectionately called), was born and raised in Miami, Florida. He later joined the Navy and "traveled the world" for ten years. Karla was born in Texas, but was raised on the mission field in Santiago, Chile. After Steve and Karla were married in 1983, they lived in Charleston, SC, Sicily, Italy, and Orlando, Florida while doing vocational mission work.

Sensing God's call to go into full-time ministry, they moved to Texas where they both graduated from Abilene Christian University in 1992. While in Texas, they were very active in establishing a fast growing church with contemporary worship, led small groups and raised up new leaders that were eventually sent to mission fields around the world.

They are excited about what God is doing in northern Michigan, and they feel that a big part of their call here is to encourage fellow Christians while reaching out to children, families and adults with the love of Christ.
