Bob Hawker

Wildwood Church of God - Ashland, Kentucky

My name is Bob Hawker (@hawkermania) and I am the Pastor of Student Ministries at Wildwood Church of God. I began my time at Wildwood in 2008 after graduating from Warner University. I am originally from Florida and moved to Kentucky when God called me to Pastor at Wildwood. My Call to vocational ministry came in High School and I have been pursuing that calling ever since. I believe highly in a servant style of leadership, and believe that, until you are serving your re not becoming like Jesus. I have been married to my wife Alison Hawker (@coachhawker) since 2009 after we dated for 3 years while studying at Warner University. She is an Elementry PE teacher and is incredibly good at what she does! She is my biggest supporter and I try and be hers! We have 2 amazing daughters Ansley Grace Hawker born in 2014 and Aria Belle Hawker born in 2017. We have also been Foster Parents for 7 years to over 50 kids! 

I love kayak fishing, camping in my tree tent, and all things outdoors. I am a Star Wars nerd and collector, love making memories with my girls, and miss the beach with all my heart. I love the family I came to know here at Wildwood and am so encouraged by how welcoming and open they are to people of all walks of life! I love you more than my luggage!
