William C. Hawkins
Pastor Bill Hawkins was born in LaCrosse, Wisconsin, attended Sparta High School in Sparta, Wisconsin and graduated from the U.S. Military Academy at West Point. While at the Advanced Infantry course at Fort Benning, Georgia, two academy classmates and their wives led Bill and Anne to the Lord. With a constraint and calling for the ministry, he secured a masters degree from Bob Jones University in Greenville, South Carolina. While studying there he was invited to Hallmark Baptist Church where Willard Ramsey and Henry Morris III, co-pastors, became his mentors. He has been a pastor at Hallmark Baptist Church since 1971 and shares the ministry with Shaun Ramsey. He and his wife, Anne, have four grown children and ten grandchildren.
