I'm New

Are you just visiting or new to our church? This is a great place to begin the journey.


I would like to begin by recognizing and welcoming our first-time and returning visitors. We are glad you're here!

My name is Jason Obenchain, and I am the Vice President of the Parish Council here at Holy Ascension Orthodox Church.

The Mission of Holy Ascension Orthodox Church is love God, love people, and make disciples. We carry on the tradition of Orthodoxy in Hawaii that began in the 1800s, share our beliefs with as many people as possible, help people advance in their spiritual growth, and instill in our youth the joyous love of Orthodoxy.

The Vision of Holy Ascension Orthodox Church is establish a thriving Orthodox Christian community of authentic believers and to witness an island transformed by the life changing reality of the gospel, as people come to know Jesus Christ, and share the Orthodox Christian faith with the world.

I encourage you to have a look around to learn more about our church. Be sure to check our online calendar to stay current with services and events. We would love to get to know you and stay connected. If you haven't already done so, I invite you to fill out a Connect Card.

In Christ,
