HIM New Office Update

 
 

The new HIM office is officially UNDER CONSTRUCTION!!!

We got keys to the new space at 547 Halekauwila in December. Our building permit was approved in January. And renovations began in February! We are on our way to having a new home for HIM!

However, we are still short of funds for this important project — about $72,000. While HIM has raised to date an incredible $111,627, the projected budget of $115,000 has needed to increase to $180,697 to make sure the new office is a safe and properly equipped site for HIM’s ministry.

Our target date for moving is May 2019, just 2 months away, and we need your help.

We are so grateful to those who have already given toward the new HIM Office!

With your help, HIM more than met our $25,000 Matching Gift Challenge in November. Thank you for those who have come behind HIM with encouragement and financial support. We are also grateful for a $25,000 capital grant from the Harold K.L. Castle Foundation. The new HIM Office will help us to reach more, serve more and be better servants and stewards in our call to gather, equip, strengthen and renew Christian leaders and churches.

Please consider a gift today to the HIM Office Capital Campaign. Or make a gift to the HIM General Fund, which deploys your support to where it is most needed at the time — program expenses, scholarships, and general overhead like rent and utilities. We need you and your ministry partnership every day.
Thank you for your prayerful support. Blessings in Him.

Dan and Pam Chun for HIM


*We hope to see you at HIM 2019: Kingdom Come, March 21-23. More info at him2019.org.

After more than 25 years in Mānoa Valley, Hawaiian Islands Ministries is moving in May 2019 to 547 Halekauwila St in Kaka‘ako. The move is strategic. The move increases ministry sustainability. The move has spiritual significance and resonates with the transforming power of faith in Jesus Christ.

The move is strategic. It places HIM squarely in Honolulu’s urban corridor in the rapidly growing Kaka‘ako area. The advantages are innumerable. Kaka‘ako is becoming the crossroads for government, business and urban life on O‘ahu. HIM will benefit from easier accessibility, better proximity to churches, community organizations and social service agencies, and greater visibility in the community. Overall, the new office location opens up greater opportunities to partner with others for the Kingdom of God.

The move improves HIM’s sustainability. It significantly decreases overhead expenses. The new lease in Kaka‘ako reduces HIM’s rent by 54%. This means a greater portion of each dollar HIM receives will go to ministry programs and less to baseline business costs.

The move has spiritual significance. The new HIM office will operate out of the historic heart and start of Christianity in Hawai‘i. It lies in walking distance to Kawaiaha‘o Church, The Mission Houses and the former site of Queen Keopuolani’s home on Queen St. Keopuolani, the lesser-known but most sacred wife of Kamehameha the Great, transformed Hawai‘i by embracing Christianity and dismantling the kapu system. She was the first baptized Christian in Hawai‘i. The new HIM office lies on ground where Christianity took root in Hawai‘i. These grounds empower and inspire us to continue declaring faith in Jesus Christ as the principal agent of social, cultural, economic, political, corporate, relational and personal transformation.

Dear Friend,

That’s right. The HIM office will be getting a new address after more than 20 years in the same location!

Moving won’t be easy and will comes with major costs. However, we believe this is a move that will benefit everyone HIM serves in significant ways.

WHY is HIM moving? Couldn’t HIM just stay in its current space?
Simply: rent and location. Rent at the new office will be 50% of what we pay now. Lower rent will reduce overhead, releasing more resources for ministry programs. The new office location will also be easier to get to and closer to many churches.

WHERE is HIM moving? 547 Halekauwila Street in historic Kaka‘ako
HIM is moving to downtown Honolulu, in walking distance to Kawaiaha‘o Church, ‘Iolani Palace and Restaurant Row. Although surrounded by new high rises, retail and restaurants, HIM's new home will be on the second floor of a 50 year old building needing significant renovation. We’re praying that HIM’s presence will help release spiritual revival and God’s Holy Spirit in this burgeoning area.

WHEN is HIM moving?
As soon as we can – but that will take time. We have a signed lease and are waiting for the landlord to remediate building issues so that we can start demo and construction.The space needs A LOT of work. The plan is to move after the HIM 2019 conference in late March 2019.

WHAT does HIM need help with?
We need your help to raise $115,000 to pay for the project by the end of this year. This is money we need to raise outside of conference registration, as those fees go directly to cover speakers, facilities and program expenses. We believe the move practices good stewardship, increases HIM’s accessibility, strengthens our ability to serve the Body of Christ, and positions HIM for more ministry opportunities

HOW can I help?
You can help by giving today to a $25,000 HIM Office Matching Challenge. The match is being offered by friends who have been blessed by HIM and want to see many more blessed. Help us raise the $115,000 needed by December 31, 2018, by making a gift today and getting it matched!

PLEASE GIVE TODAY
We need you so that HIM can continue to gather and build up the Body of Christ in its diversity, beauty and giftedness. We need your help in packing up our HIM Fish to release HIM’s ministry in a new, fresh pond. Thank you.

Much aloha,
Dan and Pam Chun | Cofounders, HIM

We need you for a Matching Gift Challenge 🌱

 
 

Today, now, HIM needs your help. Small yet planted to grow great things among those who nest in Jesus, HIM is a Kingdom ministry that spreads its branches wide. HIM marks 35 years of ministry in 2018, and we believe that God wants HIM to go on.

HIM has received a matching grant that will match up to $50,000 in gifts to HIM through June 30, 2018. We need your help to make the match, receive the grant and continue growing the Kingdom. Meeting the match is crucial. It will help eliminate HIM’s deficit. It will permit us to focus on Kingdom work and planting. It will bless the thousands HIM serves.

To make the match we need every person to rise up and do their part. We’re asking every person who has benefited from, attended, supported, encouraged and sent people to HIM to: (1) STEP OUT and meet the challenge and (2) SHOW that HIM is a valuable ministry worth funding and continuing.

At HIM 2018, thousands stood together on opening night and prayed for Holy Spirit revival. We prayed for Hawai‘i, turning south, east and west to pray for each island. We looked up and prayed for the nations and the world. We prayed as young and old from hundreds of churches and every background and tradition. We prayed as the diverse, holy and unified Body of Christ. We prayed for God’s Kingdom to come “on earth as it is in heaven.”

This matching grant adds muscle to our prayers for spiritual awakening. Every gift will be matched up to $50,000. Our generous funder wants to challenge and affirm you in showing up for HIM. It’s adding its faith and support to yours so that together we can see God’s Kingdom here. Our funder knows we can do more, bless more, receive more — when we do it together.

Please make a gift today. Help us meet the match and do more together. Every gift grows the Kingdom.

Thank you. We bless you and are blessed by you.
