Hawaiian Islands Ministries exclusive:
The State of Faith in Hawaii
A revealing study of faith in Hawaii commissioned by HIM and conducted by the Barna Group.
This first-time ever research was based on a statistical survey of Hawaii residents and Hawaii clergy to capture prevailing faith-related attitudes, perceptions and practices in Hawaii today. The study measured beliefs, behaviors, community influence, and more. It is a powerful mirror for the Church in Hawaii, giving us a more accurate view of what we look like from the inside and out — by believers and those who believe differently, or not at all. Even more, the study can guide churches and leaders in responding with greater understanding to those we minister to.
This study was commissioned by Hawaiian Islands Ministries (HIM), conducted by The Barna Group, and funded by HIM along with several churches and community partners.
The Barna Group is a visionary research and resource company located in Ventura, California and widely considered to be a leading research organization focused on the intersection of faith and culture. It offers customized research, resources and training to serve churches, non-profits, businesses and leaders in order to help facilitate transformation in organizations, communities and individuals.
