State Council of Hawaiian Congregational Churches
The State Council of Hawaiian Congregational Churches traces it roots back to the 1948 ‘Aha Pae’aina of the Hawaiian Evangelical Association (the precursor to today’s Hawai’i Conference of the United Church of Christ). The State Council was set up to provide leadership for Hawaiian churches, promote their work, and to nurture fellowship.
The State Council of Hawaiian Congregational Churches was formally recognized at the 1952 ‘Aha Pae’aina. It continues today with approximately fifty member churches working together to keep alive the legacy and traditions of the native Hawaiian churches out of a sincere love for the Hawaiian churches and the Lord Jesus Christ.
