A leader listens, inspires, motivates others to reach their full potential, and enables teamwork. Pastor Dawkins exhibits all of these characteristics in an unique way. His style of preaching, teaching, conversation, and just being who he is (smart, articulate, honest, real and funny) is engaging. Every time he speaks, I learn something new about myself or see that topic in a different way, how to effectively serve God and people, and ultimately, to live out the life God planned for me.

Pastor Dawkins has been very influential in my life. He leads by example not just with words . I have never met such a humble a caring man of God. His teachings promote growth in Christ and in life.

Pastor D is an awesome teacher and great preacher. God has always used him to relate a word to what is going on in my life. He is truly anointed and it is a blessing to hear him speak. He knows how to articulate a message in a way that is perceptible to all. His heart is big and he wears it on his sleeve.

I've had the pleasure of sitting under Pastor Dawkins' leadership while I was away for college.  He is not only a great pastor, leader and life coach but he's an honorable person in general. Although I'm no longer in the area Pastor Dawkins still has a major impact on my life from expanding my understanding through his teaching and hunger for God, developing me in areas of leadership, and even some of his mannerisms. Whenever I'm in the area my family at PTI is first on the list!

I am new to Praise Tabernacle International and I can definitely say Pastor Dawkins is a true man of God. His teachings of the word of God encourages people to have a closer relationship with God. He is passionate and caring and would do anything to help and encourage his members. Pastor Dawkins is well deserving of this award..

Pastor Dawkins, Sr. has influenced me to know that as a leader I will overcome challenges. In addition, his teaching of the Word of God has influenced my thinking and how to enhance the application of my life with the Word of God. "Transforming Lives for Christ Centered Living".

Pastor Dywane Dawkins is truly a Man of God. The titles; Pastor, Reverend, Minister and more are all great but the title that stands out to me the most when I think of Pastor Dawkins is SHEPHERD! Like the story in the bible of the shepherd and his sheep who when just one sheep went astray, the shepherd stopped at nothing to bring them back home: Pastor D is a perfect example. His passion for the uplifting, progression and success of people is tremendous as he continues to assist in healing our communities. In Pastor Dywane’s ministry, no one gets left behind. All souls are valuable no matter what age, background, walks or life, ethnicity and more one may be. In these days it easy for people in the church to be overlooked even under a spiritual covering. However, Pastor Dywane Dawkins has shown how in tune and connected he is to the desire and word of God that states “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”

My Pastor Dr. Dywane Dawkins has been a blessing to me as an individual l have to say that he had inspired me to believe again as a Christian woman that once lost her faith he has lead me to understand that man is man I should only have Faith in God and God alone because of our conversation I am back to praying and coming back to church just because he took the time to sit down and talk to me and find out why I lost my way

For the short time that I was under the leadership of Pastor D.H. Dawkins I watched myself grow spiritually and as a woman of God. The many times I meet with you in your office molded and transformed me. Thank You

I've been under Pastor D.H. Dawkins leadership for 6 years now and I have grown tremendously spiritually. I can truly say that my pastor is a man after God's own heart. His word is always right on time! His love for his ministry is so great. He always seeks to know everyone in his congregation and makes sure that new members feel welcomed. I couldn't be apart of a better ministry than Praise Tabernacle International!

I have been under Pastor Dawkins leadership for the past three years. His teachings have helped me to grow so much stronger spiritually. I am more reflective of my actions and find myself praying more often for guidance in my daily walk in life. I am so elated to be a part of a ministry that demands excellence and that is so passionate about outreach. My pastor follows the lead of the lord and as a result, his ministry is reaching many who've never heard of Christ or previously turned away from him. I am extremely proud to be a member of Praise Tabernacle International and grateful to have a pastor who isn't afraid to preach God's Holy word and who is obedient to the calling on his life.

Pastor Dawkins is a man of God. However, he is real and gives early and practical knowledge. That's what I admire about him.

In the few short months I have come to know Pastor Dwayne Dawkins, I have learned some very important aspects of leadership. But it is very evident, that he has a river of creativity for programs and initiatives that will transform lives. His strong and passionate leadership builds others while he is working his way up to a bigger dream. "John Maxwell said, "A leader is one who knows the way, goes the way, and shows the way," that is Pastor Dywane Dawkins.

I am new to Praise Tabernacle International, however from the day I stepped into that place Pastor Dawkins has been the embodiment of a man of God. His teachings are not only relatable but relevant. He has helped restore my faith, not just from his teaching but also how he carries himself and how he interacts with everyone in the church. He has a strong team behind him that allows him to lead and makes you want to follow as well. You will never leave PTI feeling the same, something in you will have more strength, more faith, or you will have a greater praise than what you came in with. Pastor D makes it a safe environment where you aren't afraid to be yourself in the presence of others because you are so focused on being you in the presence of God. He is truly an inspirational man by any standard.

My Pastor has influenced my life in many ways he's given the push as a business person and as well as a young man, his teachings will have you going home feeling changed and inspired to keep going and let nothing stop or hold you back he has a heart for God and his people, it's shows everything he takes the platform and teach us. D.H Dawkins Sr. Is not just a pastor, he's a friend, mentor, big brother, a person you can talk to with ease he gives you practical teachings Alfie everyday life. Pastor D is an over all true man of God who God has chosen, proved,anointed and appointed and I pray and thank God for Pastor D everyday for the countless ways he inspire me to keep going.

My Pastor Dwayne Dawkins is an amazing Man of God.He has been my pastor for four years now! Going back from the first day I walked into Praise Tabernacle International and listened to Pastor Dawkins teaching, at the end of service I knew that this is the leader and Shepherd of Gods house that I wanted to follow and to whom I wanted to be led by. He has such a passion to teach the gospel in the way that it should be taught (In Truth) and to win souls for Christ to which he does both and more so greatly! He only and always desires for God to get the glory not himself. He is such an inspirational leader in and outside of the church doing works that Ive never seen a pastor to do! And he does it with a Humble heart saying Yes to the great calling that God has for his life and whatever else there is that God wants him to do 100%. Once again he is such a great leader and I am happy and proud to say me and my family are being led by such a great pastor. My Pastor Dwayne Dawkins Sr!

I find it very difficult to accumulate words that would accurately describe the level of respect and gratitude I've developed for Pastor Dawkins over the years. To me he has been nothing less than a mentor and spiritual father who I can always trust to render good advice. He is one of the most influential and impactful people in my life and towards my family, and I am grateful for his ministry. Pastor D is an AMAZING preacher and teacher who is very purpose driven in all that he does. His sense of humor and down to earth personality allows for better comprehension of his teachings, especially for the youth. I thank God for pastor Dawkins and his family, who give so much daily for others.

My Pastor is truly an anointed man of God. He is a GREAT preacher of the gospel who studies God’s word and presents it with truth in a compelling fashion. My Pastor inspires and challenges me to live a life that is pleasing to God with meaning and purpose. He’s not afraid to tell us about sin and our need for repentance and our need for a Savior. I also enjoy hearing him preach because he incorporates humor in the messages. I love how he openly shares with the congregation about the work God is doing in his heart to strengthen or encourage him, to help in his times of weakness, and to correct him when he loses his way. The stories remind me that we are all human. He is truly concerned about the members of his church. He models generosity and he never allows anyone in need to go unnoticed. He takes the time out of his busy schedule to check on you, he regularly takes the time to pray us, and every Sunday my Pastor takes the time to greet us as we exit the door. I thank God for him every day. I’m blessed to have Pastor Dawkins as my Pastor.

Where do I start, there is not enough words to express the love, admiration, respect and gratitude I have for this man of God, whom I proudly call my pastor, my mentor , my prayer warrior and my father figure. I so grateful for God placing him in my life and my family life. He has been instrumental in my upbringing and my walk with Christ. As a young adult I am amazed at how love for God, his family , his church and people on general. Pastor Dawkins related well with all ages, his impact alone in south Florida and what he is doing with the schools on broward county is only a portion of his contribution to the community and body of Christ. Pastor Dawkins deserve this award without a doubt. Theres no stopping him as he continue to influence individual and win souls for Christ. I salute and love you pastor D!

Pastor Dawkins is a man going after God. His down to earth personality and his love for God is just inspiring. I first heard Pastor D about six years ago on the radio. I visited the church and it has been history. I am grateful to have this man of God in my life as he continuously pray for me and my family. I have such admiration and love for him and it's even more wonderful to know that my 11 year old son loves and admires him as well. I grew up in church but I never got serious about God until I started attending PTI under Pastor D. leadership. Pastor D deserves this award and so much more and I know God will continue to use him to make a difference in this world. I pray for Pastor D and his family daily and I'm thankful that God has placed him as the head of PTI. My family and I love you very much Pastor D and I pray for many many more years of success doing what God has ordained you to do.
