While Oahu serves as an international vacation destination with its beautiful scenery and gorgeous beaches, it is not without troubles. The lost and the hurting are here, just as they are everywhere. YWAM Honolulu has the desire to see faith in action on the island of Oahu as much as throughout the nations.

We aim to integrate with and mobilize locals into missions by providing opportunities for equipping, community events, service, and ministry partnerships.

Routine Evangelism


YWAM Honolulu has a number of other evangelistic initiatives throughout Oahu. We welcome individuals and teams to reach out for collaborative efforts or details to join us.

At YWAM Honolulu, we believe that Christians can be missional in whatever it is that they do. As every sphere of society needs Jesus, the workplace is the mission field.
