In 2018 the Lord was pleased to establish Trinity Church Kauai (www.trinitykauai.com), a church plant made up of several core families on our neighboring island of Kauai. The PCA pastors from the three PCA churches on Oahu have flown over to minister in person with them since then (with a mandated pause during the COVID-19 pandemic). Now, the Lord has raised Jonas Patterson, a native Hawaiian, to return home to organize and establish this church plant on his beloved home island of Kauai.
The Lord brought Jonas to faith in Christ while he was living in Alaska and there also brought into his wife, Melissa. It was in Alaska while serving at a prison ministry program he developed through his local church that he first felt the call to go back home and proclaim the Gospel to the people of Hawaii. For preparation, Jonas received his Master of Divinity from Westminster Theological Seminary in Philadelphia in 2019 and is an approved church planter by MNA’s church planter assessment center.
Gifts can be sent via check or money order made payable to MNA. Ministry or church plant names should be clearly designated with a note accompanying the check or money order.
