TJ Gorum hails from the beautiful state of Oregon (Go Ducks!) He moved to Hawaii 11 years ago to go to Pacific Rim Bible College. He expected to complete 4 years here and then go back to Oregon. What he wasn’t expecting was to fall in love with the people of Hawaii during his time here. TJ was one of the founding 4 members of New Hope Diamond and has served on staff there as one of the teaching pastors, youth pastor, campus pastor and equipping pastor. He has a passion for the outdoors, crossfit, spearfishing and taking risks for the sake of the kingdom. Getting to plant a church alongside one of his best friends will be a life long dream come true for TJ!
Kamu Sing was born and raised in Hawaii and graduated from Kamehameha Schools. After high school he pursued music in the Hawaii Island Reggae music industry with the group “Next Generation”. In 2008, he graduated from Pacific Rim Bible College while pursuing full-time ministry. In 2010, he married Hoapili Sing, the love of his life who just gave birth to their firstborn son, Kealaula (the dawning or a fiery path). Today he serves as the Evangelism Pastor at New Hope Diamond Head and is very excited to start this new chapter in planting a new church.
