Your gifts have helped to support a spring break “Create” event. This outreach included training students for leading worship.
Ohana Church on the Big Island in Hilo used the funds they received from the Sue Nishikawa Offering to tap into the creative side of the youth on their island. “Create” was the weeklong event they produced to do just that during spring break 2018. The theme for the camp was based on Genesis 1:1, “In the beginning, God CREATED the heavens and the earth.” 35 youth and 15 adult leaders from 3 local churches experienced student-led worship arts expressions throughout the week. Each day, from 3:00 pm to 8:00 pm, students would rehearse 10 different worship songs vocally and with musical instruments. On the last evening, they held a concert for over 125 people. Many responded to the Gospel. “What a beautiful experience it was to see the next generation lead our Hilo community in worship,” exclaimed Zeke Tomaselli, pastor of Ohana Church. One student shared his testimony and sang “I Can Only Imagine.” His parents were in the crowd and were blessed by his performance.
Kahu Zeke declared, “Mahalo nui to the Sue Nishikawa Mission Funds and its goal to spread the Gospel throughout the islands.”
- Pray for these young worship leaders to grow in their faith.
- Pray for their families to come to Christ through their witness.
And as you pray and as you give, consider how your church can plan, promote, and implement an outreach like this. If you are starting a new ministry to reach people for Christ, you could request funds to enhance and strengthen your mission efforts. Any Hawaii Pacific Baptist Convention church can request funds from this offering to strengthen and support the evangelistic and compassion ministries of your church.
