This ministry is dedicated to our Lord through the art of hula, reflecting the culture in which we live, giving praise to our risen savior, Jesus Christ. As part of this ministry, we are expected to live according to the Lord’s word.  As part of this culture, we will know hula to be more than just a dance.

If you are interested in learning more or being a part of this ministry, please contact Lita Catiel at forgiven7@hawaii.rr.com.
