Meet the Pastor
Pastor Won-Seok Yuh has felt more at home in Hawai'i, remembering his younger years living in Honolulu.
After sensing God's call into ministry in the early 90's in Hawai'i, Pastor Won feels a return home to a call to serve in the Kahalu'u community, sharing hope, faith, and love in the living gospel of Jesus Christ.
Kahalu'u UMC History
Excerpt from Baseball Evangelism:
The Rev. Chinpei Peter Goto knew how to attract Japanese boys to his church through baseball. In 1909, Chinpei was baptized at the South King Methodist Church. He became a leader among the youth while employed in Honolulu. He was known as a baseball star and an excellent tennis player. But he also participated faithfully in evangelistic street preaching in the slums of Honolulu, in the Sunday school, and the Epworth League.
