MEET PASTOR ROD
Rod and his wife Beckie have been married for over 32 years! They have 3 grown children; Kai, Koa, and Malia. “I love the Godhead, my wife and kids…in that order, and spending time with all of them:) ! I love studying and teaching the Word of God, spending time with people, making strong and healthy disciples who live for Jesus!” In his spare time, Rod enjoys exercise, boxing, watching Mixed martial arts – then filling up with Hagen Daz coffee and peanut butter/chocolate ice cream!
Pastor Rod has been in ministry for over 33 years, shepherding and leading a variety of ministries. He has led Children’s, Youth, College, Community/Missions, Discipleship/Small groups, Worship and the Arts, as well as assisting and consulting a number of church planters.
Since moving back to Hawaii from Kansas City in 2000, Rod has overseen various ministries at New Hope Oahu. He currently serves on Pastor Wayne’s Directional Team at New Hope Oahu, while pastoring our ‘ohana at Manoa.
