With Maui roots stretching back to the plantation days, Jim Franks has been part of the Hope Chapel ‘ohana since his youth, attending AWANA and going on mission trips to Mexico and the Philippines.  Jim met his wife Erin, a fourth-generation Hilo native, at the University of Hawaii and in 2003 they moved to Seattle ‘for just a few years.’  Fourteen years later they made the move back to Maui with daughter Rylie and son CJ in tow to rejoin our Hope Chapel family.  As the Administrative Pastor, Jim oversees the budget, finances, and day-to-day operations of the church.
