Hi. I'm Glenn Hawkins, pastor of Grace United Family Church. I received Christ as my Lord and Savior in 1976 and my life has never been the same. I'm continually amazed by His grace and mercy toward me!

I graduated from Liberty Baptist Theological Seminary in Lynchburg and spent over a decade as an active duty Air Force Chaplain, and the Lord gave my family and me incredible opportunities to serve Him literally around the world. 

I am delighted to call Mechanicsville my home and Grace United my church family. I get very excited to live life "alongside" my Christian brothers and sisters helping them to become more like Jesus. I also have a deep concern to be involved in the lives of Christians in areas of the world where the Christian faith is not so welcome. I am convinced that the Lord has given me a commitment to world missions through my service to the Lord in the Chaplaincy. 

My best friend in this life is my bride of 40 years, Kitty. We have 4 adult children: Jeremy, Stephen, Rebecca, and Gabriel. The Lord has greatly blessed us with seven grandchildren as well -- a true delight of our hearts! 

In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my family, reading good books, and trying my hand at woodworking and accomplishing projects around the house.
