Aloha! Welcome to Christ Church Oahu. Christ Church is an Anglican Church on Oahu being started by The Rev. Ed McNeill. Ed and his wife Evelyn moved to Oahu in 2017 following a call from God to move to Oahu. They have been following God’s call throughout their marriage. Ed was ordained in Edmonton, Canada in 1986 and has followed calls into Edmonton from Onoway Alberta, to San Jose California, and now to Oahu. The call to Oahu is a longish story to tell and if you’d like to hear it just ask Ed. Ed and Evelyn have delighted in every move God has brought them to. Ed believed the move to Oahu would be to start a new church and this has been affirmed in prayer over the past year.. As always though we hold our plans lightly and seek God’s direction.
Call and Response
Answering a call to move and start a new church is exciting and daunting. Ed is currently seeking people interested in participating and experiencing the unfolding of God’s work. Participating in a the start up of a church is like adding a turbocharger to your faith journey. Faith develops in the face of challenge and people who help start churches experience growing faith.
Loving God, Living Aloha
Hawaii is very different than Northern California where Ed and Evelyn left to come to Oahu. Ed has been quietly seeking to understand Hawaii and continues to do so. One day as he prayed about Christ Church Oahu and a vision a tag line popped into his head. “Loving God, Living Aloha”. On so many levels this captures his vision for Christ Church. For more information about our vision please visit our vision page.
Christ Church Oahu is an Anglican Church, deeply rooted and respectful of the early church. We have a high view of Scripture and seek to conform our lives to God’s will expressed in God’s Word. We emphasize respect for all people and seek to treat everyone with aloha.
Christ Church Oahu is part of the Diocese of Churches for the Sake of Others (C4SO), that is in turn part of the Anglican Church in North America (ACNA). Bp. Todd Hunter, author of many books, former President of Alpha USA, former President of the Vineyard Churches, is Ed’s Bishop. Ed also works part time for Bp. Todd overseeing the ordination process for C4SO.
