Just Show Up (JSU) is a simple and easily deployed strategy for our congregations to read through the entire Bible, gain Bible literacy and live in the wisdom of God. Most of our church attenders have not read the Bible. They might want to but they don’t have an easy strategy. JSU gives them this plan. Like dieting and exercising it is always best done in community and we would like to share this with you as we see it as a movement that could help Hawaii.


The Alpha Course has proven to be successful in reaching our post-Christian world as a great evangelism tool. Our church uses it, and we have found that people who take this course, between 10% to 31% of the attenders discover a new relationship in Jesus. It has an extremely high conversion rate with a talk story and listen style that fits Hawaii.

HIM Mental Health Conference is FREE for you or your church staff who attend The Just Show Up and the Alpha Course Seminar (Friday afternoon.) The Mental Health Conference begins at 6:30 pm August 30 Friday and ends at 9:00pm and continues Saturday 8:30 am to 3:30 pm all at Ko‘olau Ballrooms. Tickets to the Mental Health Conference will be distributed at the JSU/Alpha seminar.
