Staff and Volunteers


high school youth director

Matt Yamamoto

Matt has been working with the youth for over fifteen years. He has a heart for Hawaii’s young people that developed when he was a youth himself. He’s served both as a volunteer and as the youth director in other youth groups with both middle school students and high school students. He strongly believes in helping our youth develop a genuine relationship with their loving Father through the community found in a healthy youth ministry, personal relationships with youth leaders and fellow students who seek God’s best, and personal time with God through reading God’s word, prayer, and worship. He loves anything fun and tries to work that into everything he does with the youth and in the ministry.
