Dr. Paul D. Hawkins

Dr. Hawkins became Tidewater Baptist Church's second pastor in September of 1977 and moved the church body to its present location in February of 1979. He devotedly pastored for twenty-seven years at Tidewater Baptist Church (then Tidewater Baptist Temple). He and his beloved wife Linda now minister with Armed Forces Baptist Missions and reside in North Carolina, but still have their hearts closely knit with their Tidewater Baptist church family.
