Hawkins, John & Joann

missionary

Bio:

John and Joann Hawkins gave their lives to Jesus Christ in 1987. After grad­u­at­ing from Christ for the Nations in 1990, they entered full-time min­istry with World Indigenous Missions and served in south­ern and cen­tral Mexico for 13 years plant­i­ng church­es and train­ing nation­al lead­ers. They real­ized that the effec­tive­ness of their min­istry could be expo­nen­tial­ly increased if they made use of mod­ern media. So in 2004, they joined forces with World Impact Now Ministries, a min­istry which uses video tech­nol­o­gy to equip church­es and lead­ers around the world to facil­i­tate Christian Leadership Training & Discipleship and Community Development. The pro­grams they use the most are those they have filmed and pro­duced themselves–“Nation-2-Nation,” a min­is­te­r­i­al and bib­li­cal stud­ies pro­gram (used to train church lead­ers) and “Nation-2-Nation Community Development” which is a human­i­tar­i­an pro­gram (used to equip the church to be a social and prac­ti­cal bless­ing to its com­mu­ni­ty). They have helped to estab­lish over 1000 video Bible schools in 20 lan­guages around the world.
