As a thought leader, Derrick mentors men and businesses on how to maximize their full potential to become a better “you” for the future “you” through his personal ministry (Derrick A. Hawkins Ministries).

Roshonda thrives in her passion for women, helping them to unlock their full potential in God. She can be found pouring into women empowering them to live a life submissive to God and walking in love.

Just on the outskirts of Charlotte, North Carolina, the loving parents of six and grandparents of three make it their mission to lead their family with God first, prayer, and compassion.

It is a place that has gripped our heart
