Alan Hawkins – Senior Pastor
Alan has been in ministry since 1977, including over 20 years in the Southern Baptist Convention. He is a graduate of Mississippi College and holds seminary degrees from Mid-America and Southeastern. In the late nineties, a deeper revelation of God through profound encounters with the Holy Spirit showed Alan his path forward, and Alan started a non-denominational, Spirit-filled church that would become New Life City. He is now living his dream of pastoring a family of believers dedicated to strong biblical teaching, a high value for worship, a heart to bless the nations, and the pursuit of life in the Holy Spirit. He and his wife Gail have three children and six grandchildren.
Gail Hawkins – Associate Pastor
Mama Gail felt a call to ministry at the age of 12. She and Alan entered into full-time ministry shortly after getting married and graduating Mississippi College. Gail was initially troubled by Alan’s experiences with the Holy Spirit, but she trusted God and trusted Alan, and eventually experienced the Holy Spirit for herself in a profound and life-changing way. Gail attended Bethel School of Supernatural Ministry for the 2006-2007 school year and after being ordained into ministry. She joined the church staff in the fall of 2007. Gail’s greatest passion is to help others learn, as King David did, to strengthen themselves in the Lord.
