Bro. Ronald Keith Hawkins, Sr. is the son of Jerry Trusclair and Mary Thomas of Maringouin, LA. He is the sixth of seven children. He is also a graduate of Shady Grove High School.
On October 26, 1996, Bro. Hawkins married the missing piece that made his circle complete, Pastor Tracey Hawkins. Together, they are the proud parents of two young men, that are also very active in ministry, Devin and Ronald, Jr. Bro. Hawkins has always been a hard worker, one that makes many sacrifices to make sure that his family is well taken care of.
Bro. Hawkins was born into the Catholic faith, but after an encounter with the Holy Spirit, at an Old Landmark Crusade, he was filled with the Holy Spirit, and joined the Full Gospel faith. Bro. Hawkins became very excited about the works of the Lord and while being faithful to God and his church home, and meeting all the biblical requirements of the word of God, he was ordained as a Deacon on February 22, 2004 by Apostle Charles Clay, Jr.
Bro. Hawkins was summoned by God to move his family to Spirit and Truth Worship Center in New Roads, LA, under the leadership of Pastors Russell and Patricia Jackson, with the specific instructions, "For A Season." Not once did he question God, but simply obeyed, and for that he is reaping the benefits of his obedience.
Bro. Hawkins is very supportive of his wife and the HOROM family, and works diligently beside his wife in ministry. He assists in whatever area is needed. He currently serves as 1st Gentleman, Chairman of the Deacons, and an Altar Worker.
