host and senior pastor,
Genuine. Compassionate. Hilarious. These are just a few words to describe who Lisa Kai is. Her love for people coupled with the calling on her life to help women discover their worth in Christ led her to birth the Arise Women’s movement which hosts an annual conference to empower women to embrace their full identity in Christ and become all He’s called them to be. She is also the author of Perfectly You and Wake Up!, and host of the I Am Her Podcast. Together, her and her husband, Mike Kai, pastor a thriving, multi-site congregation called Inspire Church based in the heart of Honolulu, Hawaiʻi.
Rarely are the terms “hilarious storyteller” and “theological scholar” used in the same sentence, much less used to describe the same person but then again, Lisa Harper is anything but stereotypical! She’s been lauded as a compelling communicator, whose writing and speaking emphasize that accruing knowledge about God pales next to a real and intimate relationship with Jesus. Her style combines sound biblical exposition and exegesis with engaging anecdotes and comedic wit.

Together they Pastor FreedomHouse Church with a God assignment “To Raise Up A Generation After The Heart Of God, Who will Do All His Will!”
