About Del Hawkins
Newly-certified Del is a Dallas Texas resident. He attended Abilene Christian University and holds a degree from the University of North Texas. He felt the call on his life to matchmaking for over 15 years before taking action. He says Ignoring that call was no longer an option over the last year. He is a man of faith and believes when God calls you to do important work, you can only hesitate for so long before you are thrust in. He is energized and excited to start his new path as a Christian based matchmaker.
