Leadership

Redeemer is a mission work of the Presbytery of Southern California of the Orthodox Presbyterian Church.  Our session members, except for the pastor, live on the mainland.  However, they make regular visits to the island and the families of our congregation in order to oversee and ensure their spiritual health and growth.  We’re always excited to introduce new attendees to them when they visit. 

The familiar face you’ll see each Sunday will be Eli Hirtzel.  Eli Hirtzel is serving as stated supply at Redeemer OPC.  He and his wife Esem recently moved to Oahu home and are happy to be here!
