Christian Comedian Tim Hawkins on Finding Parking At A Mega Church

Christian comedian Tim Hawkins pokes fun at megachurches for their ridiculously large size, especially their parking lots.


Tim Hawkins is a Christian comedian, singer, and songwriter living in Missouri, USA. He’s famous for his clean comedy catering primarily to a Christian audience and for his parody covers of popular Christian songs, such as Carrie Underwood’s “Jesus Take The Wheel.” His stand-up material is generally family-oriented, based on topics like marriage, homeschooling, and parenting.

In a recent YouTube video, Hawkins pokes fun at megachurches. One such church, located in Alabama, was so big that even the parking lots had to be labeled for people to remember where they parked.

The joke was that, just like in Disneyland where the parking lots are labeled with Disney characters for visitors to easily remember where they parked. This particular Alabama church had their parking lots labeled with the ‘fruits of the spirit’. And people coming to this church are losing their minds over parking, in lots labeled with the fruits of the spirit.

Tim illustrates his joke saying, “Wouldn’t you love to be there on Sunday mornings, just watch the hypocrisy. People walking on a church service, “where’d you park the car?” I think I parked in gentleness. And then mimicked an angry lady replying, “I told you self-control”. And then patience was right by the building. It should have been across the street, makes sense!”, he explains.

The video is a must-watch, showcasing Tim’s signature style of humor that delivers a message about how Christians can be easily exposed as hypocrites. The video points out that we often fail to live by the values we preach.

Tim delivers a neatly written joke that is both funny and has an important lesson for all Christians about the need to be deeply rooted in Christ and bear the good fruits of the spirit.
