HPBC Women’s Ministry encompasses all things women and children. HPBC Women has a vision for reaching women; creating within them a hunger for serving Christ. We believe that an effective women’s ministry includes the following five aspects: prayer, discipleship, evangelism, missions, and building community.
Women to pray, study the Bible, live missionally to fulfill the Great Commission, and connect to each other in Titus 2 relationships.
Women to grow in their walk with God and in their relationships with others and to enrich the lives of other women and their families through Christ.
Women first and foremost with the Gospel of Jesus Christ and with each other.
Women to discover their God-given gifts for ministry, to search out needs in their church and community, and to serve wherever God is calling them.

The Woman’s Missionary Union (WMU) in Hawaii has been around for more than 70 years. From the beginning of the Baptist work in Hawaii, the women have been involved through the education of children and adults in what is to be missionary for Christ. From raising awareness of the needs for ministry through the collection of offerings for missions to organizing children through adults to teach missions, the WMU women have been an important part of the church.
Today, the WMU in the church can be a vital part of teaching The Gospel Message of the Great Commission to all ages. Learning about missionaries around the world has encouraged young people to hear God’s call to the mission field. Learning about what it means to be on mission has brought awareness of the needs of the community around the church and beyond. WMU organizations not only learn about missions, they are “hands-on” in actually participating in missions and ministry.
What Can WMU Do for Your Church?
