Our pastors

Evan and Shinobu Carmichael have been the senior pastors of Arise Church since 2008.




For years, Evan was the worship pastor at his father's church, Sure Foundation, before stepping into the senior pastor role.  

Both he and Shinobu are PKs (pastor's kids), so they have seen and understood church ministry's unique challenges.  In some form or way, they have both served in practically every aspect of church ministry.

  They both enjoy good food, friends, movies, and coffee.  They have three beautiful children, Zane, Melody, and Jaron, and reside in Hilo on the beautiful Island of Hawaii.
