Our senior pastors

Pastors Mike and Lisa Kai

From humble beginnings in 2001 to a thriving multi-site congregation, Pastors Mike and Lisa Kai are passionate about building the Church. They are visionary leaders with hearts to advance the Kingdom of God by attracting non-believers to Christ, connecting them to their church family, training them for life and ministry and sending each person to fulfill their God-given potential.

Pastors Mike and Lisa believe that “No eye has seen, no ear has heard, and no mind can comprehend what God has for those who love Him (1 Corinthians 2:9),” and out of this conviction has sparked the emergence of the Equip and Inspire Network. Each year, the Network hosts the Arise Women’s Conference, Kingdom Man Conference, and the Equip and Inspire Conference, which empower people from across the Hawaiian Islands, US Mainland, and Internationally.


Mike and Lisa reside in Honolulu and are the proud parents of three daughters and two grandchildren. Mike has traveled to speak at conferences and to congregations all over the world and conducts pastor’s and leader’s round tables nationally and internationally. Mike is the author of The Pound for Pound Principle and Plateaus, and Lisa is the author of Perfectly You.

Perfectly You, by Lisa Kai

Are you frustrated by fear, insecurity or intimidation? Many women struggle with their identity and insecurities. On the outside, we may look like we have it all together, but inside, we often doubt our own abilities and often compare ourselves to everyone else.
Author and Pastor Lisa Kai share from the heart her own personal battle with intimidation. It is a powerful story of a young immigrant and the rejection and shame she felt for being less–than in others eyes and walking bold, fearless, brave and rise up in God-fidence (God confidence).
