Pastor Gerald and Julie Hawk arrived January 2014 to lead the ministry at Good News; Gerald as Senior Pastor. Gerald and Julie The Lord has graciously led them to serve as missionary church planters in Katy. Gerald was installed as the new pastor on January 5, 2014. Lord willing, the church can transition into a bilingual work (both English and Spanish) in future days. To God be the glory for preserving this church work and with the Lord’s help we look forward to seeing the church established!

Pastor Gerald’s Testimony Godly mothers are such a delight. I thank the Lord for the prayers and faithful encouragement of my mother. Under her guidance I attended a Bible believing and preaching church where God by His Spirit began to convict of sin. Then just a year prior to my conversion God saw fit to save and wholly transform my dad which made a tremendous impact on my life. I trusted Christ Jesus as my Savior at nine years old. He that began the work has been faithful, My God saved me to serve Him, and that is what I have done with my life by His grace. He has enabled me and equipped me. To Him be the glory! Hobbies: I enjoy most any sport, but I like soccer the best and have played it since I was a youth.

Julie’s Testimony I was born into a Pastor’s home. After hearing the Word of Christ I responded in faith at an early age. Then at ten years old my family left for the mission field of Mexico. During the time in Mexico I began to grow in grace while delving into the Word of God. It was a true delight to serve alongside my parents. The Lord’s calling to missions became evident as I ministered with them in the work of the church. Hobbies: I love flowers, camping, hiking, crocheting and reading.

If you received Christ as your personal Savior please contact Pastor Gerald for more information on the Christian life. (832) 557-5107 or write gnbcpastor@gmail.com
