Our Staff

Here at Faith, Honolulu Christian Church we truly believe in serving our congregation & the people of Kalihi. Our staff is a team who works together to ensure that God's priorities are focussed on, not man's.


Senior Pastor Rodney Iaea and his brother Chris, and sister Leanne came to our church very early in its history.  Since all the Iaea siblings are talented singers and musicians, they formed the heart of our worship team for many years.  Rodney met his wife Glena (one of Myra's many sisters) at our church and now have one grown son, Hezekiah. and two daughters, Imani and Jaylah.  Rodney and Glena (and Glena's sister Cherry) have been part of the core worship team for many years.  Rodney was appointed Worship Leader when his brother Chris was called to pastor his own church years ago.  He was appointed Pastor and Music Minister at the passing of founder Pastor Loyd K. Watanabe. Rodney was trained by Pastor Loyd K. Watanabe and holds a Bachelors Degree in Missiology from Remnant University.  He was appointed Senior Pastor in 2023.
