Ministry hopes to hula in Hawaii

-A A +A
By Jennifer Garcia

Every ministry has its own way of spreading its message, whether it’s through preaching on Sunday morning, or by hosting community events that the public is invited to attend. One group, however, is taking a different approach to ministering. They do hula dancing.
The Hula Mai Ka Lani group is a non-denominational christian ministry out of Santa Fe that has been together for about 10 years and is led by their Kumu, or leader, Kalani Hawn. Though the group is based in Santa Fe, families from Rio Rancho, Pojoaque and Los Alamos are members. Michael, Michele, Morgan, Patrick and Dylan Irish are a Los Alamos family that is part of the ministry.
“It started out as a religious praise thing and morphed into entertainment,” Michele Irish said of the group. “We use a hands-on form of ministry and praise.”
The group meets on Thursday and Sunday for two hours, so they can dance hula. Irish said the members all come from different churches, but meet at the Vineyard Church in Santa Fe. She said the group starts off by having a prayer circle for each other, or for things that are going on. The last hour to hour-and-a-half is devoted to worship.
“That’s when we dance,” Irish said.
