About This Ministry

HEARTBRIDGE is dedicated to bridging the gulf between the audience and the artists. The young performers who make up the cast and production team of HEARTBRIDGE reflect a beautiful blend of cultures from several nations.


HEARTBRIDGE has become part of the family of ministries at the University of the Nations (UofN) in Kona. We provide an opportunity to train and develop young artists, then send them out to minister cross-culturally through artistic expressions. These expressions include ballet, modern dance, jazz dance, break-dancing, cultural dance, hip-hop, theater, voice and music.
