The Medeiros Family
While growing up in a single parent home on the island of Oahu, church was not a priority. It was not until my mother was looking for a private school for me that I started attending Ko’olau Baptist Church and Academy in 9th grade. I was saved two months later and God started to show me the need for churches in Hawaii. After attending West Coast Baptist College in the fall of 2007, I slowly realized what God could do with my life.
My wife, Sarah, grew up in a typical Christian home in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. She had the privilege of attending good churches and Christian schools her whole life. After she was saved at the age of 10, she knew God had something special planned for her life. She started attending West Coast Baptist College in the fall of 2008 where God started to prepare her for life in the ministry.
We met through a mutual friend in the spring of 2009, and were able learn and mature spiritually together. I was privileged to start working at my home church in Hawaii during the summers. We were eventually married in the summer of 2012, and started working on staff at Ko’olau Baptist Church and Academy. For the past five years we have been heavily involved in the Christian school, children’s program, church media, and outreach. We have been blessed to have so many opportunities to teach and minister to many here in Hawaii. During our time on Oahu, we have been blessed with our daughter, Anna, who was born in May of 2015.
It has been over the past few years that God has been working in my heart to plant a new church here on the Island of Oahu. After much prayer and counsel, we feel that it is time to now follow this path God has for our lives. Our island has so many people still in need of the Gospel, and we are excited about being a part of what God is accomplishing here on Oahu.
Because of Christ,
Travis and Sarah Medeiros
