About Kelly Hawley

Trauma and God: The Connection that Heals

Kelly Hawley is an ordained minister and the founder and Executive Director of Warrior Bride Ministries.

This ministry specializes in inner healing and deliverance for survivors of ritual abuse and child exploitation. For over 15 years, Kelly has been ministering to survivors. While doing this, she noticed the Lord was sending many who had been trafficked. Then the bigger picture became clear. There was a lack of help available to ritual abuse and trafficked survivors and those with dissociative identity disorder (DID).

After being called out of corporate America to start her own business, her heart for seeing others healed and redeemed continued to be her growing passion. In 2021, the Lord led her to start Warrior Bride Ministries. The mission is to provide biblical healing and restoration to child exploitation survivors. The office is in Kennesaw, GA and serves clients internationally. In addition to inner healing and deliverance, Warrior Bride Ministries partners with others to offer many services free of charge.

Additionally, Kelly embraces the call to unite the body of Christ to become educated and involved through church partnerships and hosting Counting the Cost conferences. It has been an amazing journey with the Lord learning how to walk survivors through healing by incorporating mind, body, spirit, and soul for complete healing.

When not working, she loves being outdoors, traveling, and relaxing at the lake with her family. Her heart’s cry is for all believers to embrace Isaiah 61 by becoming equipped to bind up the brokenhearted and set the captives free.
