Honoring Our Founding Pastor, Dr. Wayne E. Anderson

On January 14, 2024, we bid farewell to our beloved Apostle, Dr. Wayne E. Anderson, who lived a fulfilling 69 years. As we honor his remarkable journey, we pay tribute to the memory of this devoted husband, father, grandfather, and friend.

In 1980, Dr. Anderson established the City of Refuge Christian Church of Hawaii in a warehouse in Waipahu, later moving the ministry to the Waipahu Theater in 1985, where he continued to serve as pastor until his passing in January 2024. Dr. Wayne E. Anderson confidently served in all five ministry roles - Apostle, Prophet, Pastor, Teacher, and Evangelist. He fearlessly preached the gospel with passion and conviction, resulting in people being saved, healed, delivered, and set free. His expansive ministry was marked by uncompromising boldness and truth, which strengthened the faith of his listeners, transformed lives, and witnessed miracles. Dr. Anderson has completed his race and is resting with the Father.
