About: About Us


We are committed to providing opportunities for our young people to follow Jesus Christ, grow spiritually, and develop into spiritual leaders committed to service. 

There are many ministries that make up the youth department. We make sure to have various opportunities for youth of all ages to get involved and connect with the One!

Youth Director 

Pastor Erik was born and raised in Walla Walla, WA. From a young age he has had a heart for ministry and service. Right out of college he served as a missionary in Venezuela.  Shortly thereafter he received a call to work in the Arizona Conference  where he served for 11 years before coming to Hawaii. He is married to Jana and they have three boys. Pastor Erik is passionate about youth ministries and has a desire to grow the kingdom of God.


Administrative Assistant 

Jana grew up along the west coast, including western Washington and California. From a young age she has sought to know and follow Jesus. She met and fell in love with Erik while serving in ministry together, and now they raise 3 boys here in the beautiful islands of Hawaii. Jana loves nothing more than to watch the story of Jesus change lives through the power of the Holy Spirit. Her favorite is helping to equip the smallest of believers to live in Christ!
