How did God bring together one of Hawaii’s premiere Bible teachers and a nurse who served in pediatric critical care? This is the story of Dr. James and Aya Kwong. It’s a story that includes a Baptist church in Houston and the Tenrikyo Temple in Honolulu. Two people who were influenced by the Gospel at a young age. They dedicated themselves to Jesus Christ and developed their God given abilities to serve people with the Gospel through intentional ministries of discipleship.
Dr. James Kwong earned his Doctor of Ministry and Master of Divinity degrees from Talbot School of Theology. Prior to that he graduated from the University of Hawaii and went to high school at Punahou. Aya earned her RN in California. Dr. Kwong mentors college men through CRU and teaches classes for the Bible Institute of Hawaii. Aya is a worship leader at Kalihi Union Church. They have two daughters: Aleya and Aleni.
