Meet our Team
Dr. Randy Beckum
Before coming to Honolulu First, Lorie and I spent 20 years on a college campus (No, I wasn’t trying to graduate). I was the Campus Pastor and Lorie directed Global Studies. We have served as missionaries on the Eurasia Region and we really enjoy the cultural diversity on the islands. We are so happy to have found the place we always wanted to live, but never knew until now.
Our prayer is that together, we’ll continue to:
Listen for God’s voice,
Discover God’s will,
Embrace God’s mission of redemption and reconciliation.
Community Life Pastor
Aloha! In August of 2016 I joined the HFCN family along with my Wife Rachel and son Bodhi! I grew up in the Pacific Northwest while Rachel was thousands of miles away growing up in China. Our paths crossed in 2009 under a white plumeria tree right here at this church! I graduated from Point Loma Nazarene University, then served for seven years as a Youth Pastor in Kaneohe before leaping over the mountains to become a townie. Rachel and I are passionate about people and good food. We hope to have you around our table soon!
Pastor Ava Paselio
God is good, all the time! I praise God for the ministry of Honolulu First Church of the Nazarene. God is moving and growing through the lives of His people at HFCN and I am so honored to be a part of it. Seeking God through prayer and His word is how we grow. Yes, God is good, all the time!
Local Minister Melissa "Suthee" Thach
I am so thankful to have been part of the HFCN/WJNS ohana since 2005. I teach Music at WJNS and am passionate about kids knowing that God loves them! My favorite things to do are: spend time with my husband and our daughter, teach Zumba, cook, and drink coffee (a necessity when chasing baby B around). This year I began working on a Master’s degree at Fuller Theological Seminary and am excited about how God is leading our family.
Pastor Tyler Hull
I grew up in a Christian home in Texas and felt God calling me to ministry at the age of 14. Upon graduating from high school I went to Southern Nazarene University in Bethany, Oklahoma where I graduated in 2009 with a BS in Ministry and Theology. God called me back to the West Texas area where I served as Youth Pastor for 5 years. A few years ago God began a work in my heart, following in obedience I took a step of faith into the unknown. God called me to Hawaii working as Children’s Pastor here at H1Naz and the Bible teacher at Waolani Judd an extended ministry of the church. God has been so faithful every step of the way and I am excited to see what God has in store for our future!
“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”
I love Jesus, He is the center of my life! I love my 4Ks, Bruce, my ‘ohana, ALOHA, my church & my job. I am so thankful and blessed! I love to WORSHIP! That’s what brings us all together!
Psalm 5, Psalm 29:2, Psalm 95:6,Psalm 150…
Your praise Ke Akua, will ever be on my lips!!
