Dawn Beard


As a child, God captured Dawn’s life and set her apart for His call. At 5 years old, she gave her heart to the Lord during a children’s church service ran by her parents. Then at the age of 12, she joined the worship team and has since served in different ministries of the church, including youth, children’s, street outreach, and women’s. Dawn graduated from the University of Arizona with her bachelor’s degree in nursing in 1998 and began working as a nurse in Tucson Arizona. In 2000, God called her to move to California, where she took a position as a cardiac nurse in Pasadena and joined the church she still attends today (Heights Worship Center International Ministries - HWCIM). God opened the door in 2001, for Dawn to travel to the Philippines, where her heart became burdened for the nations. Four years later, in 2005, God called her to leave her position as a nurse and to serve Him fulltime. Since then, she has traveled all around the world, ministering to the needs of the church and reaching the lost through teaching, preaching, outreach, and worship ministry. She currently serves as the Worship & Prayer Pastor at HWCIM and the west coast director for Jesus Revolution Now. This year, Dawn founded Awake the Nations Ministries with the purpose to equip the Body of Christ within the nations to fulfill their God given destinies.
