Derek Hawkins

Student Ministry Coordinator

Derek graduated from Southeastern Bible College in 2016 with a major in Biblical Studies and Theology and a minor in Youth Ministry. Derek comes to the Fellowship Memphis team with a diverse background of youth ministry experience. He has served as a Program Director for both Rose City Summer Camps and Pine Cove Christian Camps, where he also took part in a nine-month intensive discipleship program called The Forge that focuses on theological study and exploring one’s unique God-given identity and life purpose.

From that program, Derek formed the mission statement he lives by each day, “Gracious ruler equipped by God to lead those in bondage and darkness into freedom and light.” Derek is excited to be a part of the FSM team because it is an avenue for him to share the gospel, build relationships and connect in the Word with students, all while having some fun along the way.
