Before you start a church in Hawaii – Cultural orientation series.


Speaker: Ikaika Higa

Topic: HPBC Life

The Hawaii Pacific Baptist Convention asked Ikaika Higa to sit down and talk about cultural issues that would help anyone coming to serve Christ in Hawaii.

Ikaika is pastor of Hāmama Community Church on the Windward side of O’ahu.

Ikaika was raised on Maui, while his wife, Stacey, grew up in Indiana. They met at Gateway Seminary, and both shared a desire to tell others about Jesus in ways that speak to their hearts. Ikaika and Stacey are not perfect people, but they serve a perfect God who loves each of us. Learn more about their ministry at
