Hawai‘i Conference Strategic Planning

‘Aha Approves Strategic Plan
At the 196th ‘Aha Pae‘āina held in June 2018 on O‘ahu, delegates overwhelmingly approved the Strategic Plan, including new mission and vision statements, that will guide our Conference, Associations and local churches over the next 10 years. Mahalo to consultant Cynthia Scherr and the Strategy Team for all of their hard work and effort as they crafted, listened, revised, thoughtfully considered, and prayed over this past year.


Sent forth by the Spirit, we walk humbly in Christ’s footsteps pursuing peace, justice and the renewal of all creation.



We are one ʻohana: a unified, radiant and transforming expression of the body of Christ.
