Our Founders

Founders of Labor of Love Church, Dr. Charles and Missionary Donna Hawthorne, are passionate people of God, realizing their calling to shepherd his people and mission to spread the Gospel. They founded Labor of Love in November 1980—a ground up ministry with humble roots and a bold vision. With their many overseas evangelical missions, as well as their influence at home, the Hawthorne’s are committed to the work of the Kingdom and continue their efforts with pride by the authority of Jesus Christ.
