Hawai‘i Conference

Hawai'i Conference Disaster Coordinator: Danny Tengan
Danny Tengan, member at Hawai'i Kai UCC, agreed to serve as the Hawai'i Conference Disaster Coordinator in 2018. He will also act as a liaison for the Conference with the national UCC Disaster Ministries team. He retired in 2013 from State Civil Defense where he served as the Exercise Training Officer and the Hurricane Program Manager. He has been a disaster volunteer with the American Red Cross since 2001 and has previously served on the CINCPAC emergency response team, deploying to emergencies anywhere in the Pacific and was the Army Reserve Emergency Preparedness Liaison Officer to USARPAC. Currently he is a Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) lead instructor and is the Oahu Eastside CERT coordinator. Danny is eager to help our churches be both prepared and responsive in the wake of disasters. He is offering Disaster Preparedness/Awareness training for churches around the Conference.


If your church is interested in sponsoring a training in your church or association, please contact Lori Yamashiro in the HCUCC Office.

 Updates & Resources 

Hawai‘i Disaster Relief Fund

In October 2017 the Conference Council voted to create the Hawai‘i Disaster Relief Fund to allow the Hawai‘i Conference to respond quickly and efficiently to both large and small natural and human caused disasters throughout the islands.

Gifts to the Hawai‘i Disaster Relief Fund allow us to provide support for holistic recovery and to restore dignity for the most vulnerable who may have lost everything in the wake of catastrophic events. We continue to accept donations for those in need, and checks may be made payable to HCUCC with a notation, "Hawai'i Disaster Relief Fund." Donations may also be made online under “Hawai‘i Disaster Relief."
