Kaua`i Island Ministries - Since early 1999, KIM
has been at work equipping followers of Jesus to change the world from the inside out. Starting with individual men, women,
and youth, KIM engineers training opportunities for them to identify and develop their gifts in order to renew the local church
and give Glory to Jesus Christ in the world.
Creativity, Excellence, And Ohana - These are KIMs
hallmarks. We believe that while the message of Christ is the same, we need fresh means of communicating it in an increasingly
noisy world. Primary vehicles are KIMs conferences, seminars, retreats, and prison ministry.
Kaua`i Island Ministries - is an interdenominational
ministry, networking diverse Christian churches, organizations and people within multi-cultural communities, and pulling together
the Body of Christ under His Lordship across the island.
