Drs. Rick & Martha Stinton

Founding Pastors

  Both graduates of Dallas Theological Seminary, Rick and Martha Stinton pastored at various churches on the mainland and in Hawaii.  After being called to serve in Hawaii, Rick and Martha raised their four sons in Kailua, having lived there since 1996.

  Rick loves serving as Senior Pastor at New Hope Kailua, and has a passion in touching lives by relational and church team building; while Martha is passionate in engaging, strengthening, and building women in the community through our Women’s Ministry.  Together, Drs. Rick and Martha Stinton are deeply grateful to be a part of God’s plan in changing lives, as His overwhelming love touches their lives and overflows to those around them.  They also serve as faculty members at the Pacific Rim Christian University in Honolulu; teaching and helping students pursue their passion since 2004.

  Rick and Martha enjoy traveling, hanging out with their adult sons and daughter-in-law, their grandchildren, and watching University of Hawaii Warrior sports! (well, at least Rick is on the last one!). One of Rick’s hobbies is serving as Chaplin for the UH Basketball team.
