Kevin is looking forward to the future God has in store. “God has set before us a great adventure of faith as we share the transforming love of Jesus Christ with the many neighbors, new and old, that surround us. I am excited to be here!”
Rev. Dr. Ron Hawkins
Ron sensed a strong call into full-time pastoral ministry, about a year after God brought him and his wife, Linette, to faith in Christ. Leaving a successful career in sales, he studied at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School in Deerfield, Illinois, where he received a Master of Divinity degree. In 1990, he, Linette and a handful of others, planted a church in Joliet, Illinois. Pastor Hawkins also served churches in Indiana, Alabama and Arizona. He completed a Doctor of Ministry degree from Reformed Theological Seminary in 2010. Ron and Linette have been married for 37 years and have five married children and eight grandchildren. “I always knew that being a grandfather would be fun, but I never knew just how much fun it would be,” he says. Pastor Ron brings administrative and leadership gifts to Windwood with a propensity and commitment to help staff and volunteers become more efficient and effective in advancing the kingdom of God. He has a pastor’s heart and is passionate to see people come to faith in Christ Jesus becoming an integral part of the life and ministry of the local church. Ron often reminds people of faith, “The world desperately needs what we have… Jesus Christ and each other.” As Paul admonishes us in 1 Corinthians 9:22, “I have become all things to all people so that by all possible means I might save some.”
