The Inspire Foundation is a Ministry of Inspire Church. It is a giving pathway that anyone can be a part of that feels called to finance the Kingdom above and beyond their regular tithes and offerings
A Vision for the Future
The 2020 Vision of Inspire Church includes expanding the number of locations on O’ahu, the Hawaiian Islands, and beyond. This will only be possible if we are financially prepared to go to communities where there is a need that Inspire Church can fulfill. The Future Location Funding will prepare us to purchase land and/or buildings when the opportunity presents itself. This will allow us to equip our members to reach communities and fulfill our vision of reaching 110,000 people through Inspire Church locations.
– 20,000 Salvations
-A two-year and four-year accredited degree program
– Joseph School of Leadership
– 80% of attendees in Connect Groups
-A Multiplication of Campuses in Hawaii, 2 Overseas (Asia + West Coast)
-Acquisition of land and buildings to sustain the increase of locations
-A Preschool at an Inspire Location
POSSIBLE FUTURE LOCATIONS:

Looking back ,
Lisa and I can see God’s hand all over Inspire Church, as God has faithfully and continually increased our capacity to lead and shepherd people. From a humble beginning with just 40 church members to now thousands of attendees every weekend, Inspire Church has become a thriving community with three locations on Oahu and one location in the Philippines. I remember arriving early at Waikele Elementary School to set-up the cafeteria tables in the lunch room. Now I’m preaching in our own building with stadium seating and A/C (praise the Lord)! I look at how far Inspire Church has come, and I readily recognize that this growth didn’t happen overnight nor was it mine and Lisa’s doing alone. It’s been a long journey that many have been a part of to take Inspire to where it is today.
In 2006, while we were still a small but growing church at Waikele Elementary School, we saw the need for a giving campaign. This would be an initiative where every member of Inspire Church, what was then called Hope Chapel West Oahu, could invest in the future of their home. We imagined having our own building and gifting it debt-free to the next generation. That is what jumpstarted our first giving initiative called, By Faith We Build. We raised over $450K, enough to allow us to rent a facility in the Waikele Shopping Center, currently the biggest of our three locations on island.
As we watched the Holy Spirit provide miracle after miracle in our new facility, we knew there were still more people to be reached and more communities to be transformed through Inspire Church. This is why we kicked off Increase and Enlarge, our second giving campaign which raised over $400K. Then in 2011, we officially changed the name of our annual giving initiative to “Heart for the House”.
To date, Heart for the House has raised over $6.5M and has allowed Inspire Church to purchase the Inspire Mililani campus, rent the Kaimuki High School Auditorium in Honolulu, and has allowed us to make a greater impact in our communities in Hawaii. In 2015, we launched Kingdom Builders to encourage the spirit of financial leadership amongst our church members. The last few years of faithfully stewarding our Kingdom Builders has now morphed into what you see today, the Inspire Foundation. Now, what was one group of people have become three groups of people: Kingdom Builders, Strategic Partners and Vision Sowers— three opportunities to make an impact through generosity.
Because of your generous partnership, we now have four locations, thousands of people have given their lives to Jesus, and a two & four-year accredited degree program to sow into our next generation of young leaders. Some would say that we have already done much, but I truly believe that this is just the beginning and there are greater works to be done, as the Church is the only hope for the world.

A Letter from
Pastors Mike + Lisa Kai
Thank you so much for partnering with the Inspire Foundation. We have seen God provide and increase the capacity of our church over the last 16 years. There were seasons where it seemed like our God-sized dreams and vision were nearly impossible to fulfill, but our faithfulness and obedience to God’s will has brought about miracles and breakthroughs in our church. God has provided for our church through men and women, like you, who answer the call to partner with us in advancing the Kingdom of God.
Because of the incredible vision God has given to us for Inspire Church, we know we can’t fulfill this on our own… and we wouldn’t want to! We want to extend an invitation to you to become a member of the Inspire Foundation, because we know the eternal blessing we reap when we sow into the Kingdom. By becoming a member, you partner with Inspire Church in making the fulfillment of our God-given mandate a reality. As the need to bring the Good News to all people increases, so does our heart to pioneer and explore new ways to further His Kingdom.
We ask that you take this time and consider prayerfully giving to the Inspire Foundation. Matthew 6:33 says, “Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need.” How is the Holy Spirit stirring in you to partner with the Inspire Foundation? We know that through your obedience, God’s blessing will overflow in every area of your life. We are believing for greater victories, miracles, and breakthroughs in 2019!
In order to be more effective in being the salt and light in our communities, Inspire Church has focused on four different initiatives for the coming year.
These initiatives will create more opportunities for people to hear the Gospel and for life changing ministry to occur.
Send Hope International, founded by Pastors Mike and Lisa Kai, is a non-profit organization that was birthed from a heart to provide financial and relational support to local and global church planters and missionaries. The Kingdom Partnerships initiative will equip and encourage these leaders to fulfill the calling God has placed on their lives. Although we may never travel to these distant places, by partnering financially through Send Hope International, we can play a role in bringing hope to others through those who are called to serve there. Funds raised will provide more opportunities and resources to reach others who are far from God.
The Lord has truly added to our growing church ‘ohana. We are living in exciting times at Inspire, but new growth also brings unique challenges. This season, our goal is to improve all existing locations to make them more welcoming to first time visitors and to support the needs of our growing membership. In order to accomplish this, each of our locations will need to be enhanced. We place a premium value on serving the needs of families and raising up the next generation of world changers.
Inspire Church is dedicated to making an impact in the local community. We recognize that our church plays an instrumental role in bringing hope and support to people all over Hawai’i. Through various outreach programs throughout the year, we have the opportunity to be the hands and feet of Jesus as we serve our city. Your seed sown into this initiative will spring forth exponential positive growth in our communities for generations to come. Thank you in advance for partnering with us.
