Rev. Kenneth Makuakāne comes from a long line of Kahu (pastors). In 2010, Kahu Makuakāne answered the call to authorized ministry and began working at the Hawaiʻi Conference of the United Church of Christ, first as an Associate for Church Vitality, then as an Associate Conference Minister and the Papa Makua (head minister) for the Association of Hawaiian Evangelical Churches. Kahu Ken was ordained and installed by Kawaiahaʻo Church as its twelfth pastor in 2018.
In partnership with the NHPI Collective COVID-19 Awareness and Prevention Campaign, Kahu Kenneth Makuakāne of Kawaiahaʻo Church issued a call to action for community members to celebrate Christmas differently as the threat of the coronavirus continues to loom over Hawai‘i. The holiday message encourages us to have faith, to celebrate safely by avoiding gathering with loved ones, and for everyone to do their part to stop the spread of COVID-19.
