The 56-year-old Hawkins apologized in court. He will be eligible for parole in 38 years.
Police say the girl reported that the abuse began when she was 14 and that Hawkins fathered her child.
Hawkins is also charged with lewd molestation and second-degree rape in Osage County and is due to enter a plea there on Sept. 9.
I wonder how many congregants still believe in him and how many blame the girl? We Christians can be so stupid sometimes.
