The Po`okela Church sits upon the lower slope of a 10,000 foot' sleeping volcano in the small town of Makawao. Our church is one of the oldest in Hawaii, formed in 1843 by Rev. Green, a missionary, for an all-hawaiian congregation. The church building has a beautifully restored interior, reflecting the antiquity of its origin, mixed with current architectural upgrades. The peaceful calm and warmth of the sanctuary creates a setting for worship and praise.
The 'aloha' of the congregation has an appeal that draws multiple cultures from surrounding areas. The Po`oklea message creates a bond of joy and love along with a thirst for Christ. Faith, hope, and love.... we are an evangelical congregation, committed to sharing Christ with the world.
Our Pastor, Rev. Dr. Kimberly Fong, is small in stature, but huge in her zeal for the Lord. Her messages are Biblically centered, motivating into action those who hear. We have surrendered ourselves to be the Lord's "Fire on the Mountain"!
Please come and see… Aloha!
