KCN will be a unified, missional presence on the Kona Coast of the Big Island of Hawaii, equipping faithful local leaders for ministry and industry.
Kona Coast Nazarene has prayerfully discerned a big vision. In 10 years, KCN will be a unified, missional* presence on the Kona Coast of the Big Island of Hawaii, from Ocean View to North Kohala. Ministry in each mission zone will be led by missionary-pastors reaching the lost, discipling the found, and modeling the kingdom. In each mission zone, emphasis will be put on training kingdom-focused disciples to multiply more disciples. By 2022, KCN will launch the Mana Institute to provide a formal means to equip faithful local leaders for ministry and/or industry. The Institute will merge discipleship mentoring with ministry credentialing, trade experience, or entrepreneurial tutoring, while maintaining an emphasis on local community development measures. KCN will experience a ten-fold growth in attendance, discipleship, and impact over this time, making eternal spiritual investments in thousands of people and measurable changes in the quality of life for the whole Kona Coast.
* "Missional" is a theological term that refers to the Mission of God: to seek and to save the lost, to establish God's kingdom, and to redeem all of creation. In this way, KCN is an instrument of God to fulfill God's mission--sent into the world to redeem the world.
