Worship

Each week as a campus we come together corporately to praise and worship God. Monday morning worship, at 8am, and Ohana Gathering at 6pm on Thursdays.

Prayer & Bible study

Prayer and studying the Bible are keys to a relationship with God. We are blessed to have a prayer room open 24/7 and a Bible department as a resources for growing and knowing God.

Personal Discipleship

We desire to know God and to make Him known, and invite others to do the same. The campus library, prayer room, or one of the outdoor tables are some places to spend time alone with God.

Community Life

Having an international community is a highlight of our campus. Weekend soccer matches, meals in our open air cafeteria, or drinks at The Banyan Tree cafe are ways to meet those around you.

Community Outreach

Located in the heart of Kona, our campus has many opportunities to serve those in need around us. Whether serving the homeless or tutoring at a local school, we can share Jesus' love.

Fun & Adventure

The Big Island is beautiful, diverse, and makes weekends perfect for discovering a new beach, exploring Volcano National Park, or taking a tour through one of the many Kona coffee farms.

OUTREACH


At the completion of the classroom phase, students have the opportunity to ‘make God known’ in the outreach phase. The Gospel comes alive as students step out in faith to preach the good news, baptize new believers and heal the sick (Mark 16:15-18). Outreach is an exhilarating time of risk and adventure, as teams serve with local believers: transforming lives and impacting society with the love of Jesus Christ.

Dreams

Dreams  ⋅  29/10/17

During our Crossroads in 1990 Mark Virkler gave us some insights into how God uses dreams. I wrestled with questions about why God uses imagery in dreams and how to get His interpretations ever since. Occasionally I’d have a vivid dream and remarkably be able to remember it. Even more remarkably, despite it’s very symbolic nature, I’d get a clear interpretation. Once it even led to a business decision that…
