About Mike


For the past 28 years, Mike and Lisa Kai have built their home on O’ahu, along with their three daughters Courtney, Bekah, and Charis. Originally from Honoka’a on the Big Island of Hawai’i, Mike has always championed the Aloha Spirit and his own cultural significance of family, community and faith. His personal testimony of finding Jesus during a crucial stage of his life sparked his calling to serve God, the people of Hawai’i and the world. Today, their family continues to grow through their son-in-laws Jaysen and Elijah, and their two grand children Bowie and Otis.

From humble beginnings in 2001 to a thriving multi-site congregation, Mike and Lisa Kai are passionate about building the Church. They are visionary leaders with hearts to advance the Kingdom of God by attracting non-believers to Christ, connecting them to their church family, training them for life and ministry and sending each person to fulfill their God-given potential.

Mike believes that “No eye has seen, no ear has heard, and no mind can comprehend what God has for those who love Him (1 Corinthians 2:9),” and out of this conviction has sparked the emergence of the Inspire Network. Each year, the Network hosts the Arise Women’s Conference, Kingdom Man Conference, and the Equip and Inspire Conference, which empower people from across the Hawaiian Islands, US Mainland, and Internationally.

In 2019, he also launched the Influencer’s Network aimed at equipping business leaders and executives globally with leadership tools through professional exchange.

Mike and Lisa reside in Honolulu and are the proud parents of three daughters and two grandchildren. Mike has traveled to speak at conferences and to congregations all over the world and conducts pastor’s and leader’s round tables nationally and internationally. Mike is the author That Doesn’t Just Happen, The Pound for Pound Principle and Plateaus.
