Our Youth Ministry focuses on students grades 7-12 and their parents. We are a community of believers who are committed to loving God and sharing His love with others. Our purpose is to create disciples who create disciples. We will do this by owning our commitment to the Great Commandment here on Maui, in the islands, and around the world. Come join us on Thursdays @ 6pm in the Living Room!

If you have any questions or if you would like more information, please feel free to contact us!  Give us a call at the church office at (808)879-3853 and ask for Brad, our High School pastor (ext. 269), or email us at youth@hcmaui.com

Who we are

“At Hope Chapel Maui Youth, we strive to have a community of faith where you are encouraged and challenged to love God and each other more. Come join the community and see what God might do in and through you as you commit to Christ and Christ-like community.”

Parents we love you!

Being a parent of a teenager can be one of the greatest joys and greatest struggles of your parenting career. The teen years are crazy, emotion-filled, and full of change. Students are entering one of the greatest changing periods in their life, they are changing physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually! These years can be tons of fun, but also full of new challenges for you as a parent and your child as a growing adult. It is our desire here at Hope Chapel Maui Youth to partner with you as parents to make these years a flourishing and thriving experience for you and your student. We want to be a resource and support system for you, as you experience all these years have to offer!

Please don’t hesitate to use us as a resource!




Here are some great Christian Parenting Links!

“ParenTeen Seminars equips parents to both understand and nurture their children in our constantly changing culture.” You can also find out information on “Hurt – Inside the World of Today’s Teenagers Seminar” based on the book of the same name from ParenTeen Seminars President, Chap Clark, Ph.D.


This is a ready-to-print, monthly newsletter that is Biblically based and provides parents with relevant information on issues their teens face.  These will be available on our website each month.

HCMY small groups are about creating genuine community in which our students can get accountability and encouragement while learning more about God and themselves. The goal of our small groups is that the students would be do-ers of the Word and learn God’s great plan for their lives as they see how He used ordinary people throughout history to make an extraordinary difference in this broken world.  Here are the scriptural reasons why we do small groups at the Furnace…

Proverbs 1:1-7     1 Timothy 4:7-8      Heb 10:25      Acts 2:46-47
