  • Dan Preciado

    Senior Pastor

    Dan & Jan arrived in Kailua in November 2013. While living in Anaheim, CA their ministerial journey began in 1996 while serving as marriage ministry leaders at Harbor Christian Center in Wilmington, CA. Then God called them to Corona, CA in April 2002 where they served as lay-ministers for 7 years at New Hope. From 2004 to 2011 Dan & Jan had their own ministry specifically for blended families. During this time Dan felt the call of God on his life and began pursuing credentials with the Assemblies of God and a degree in Biblical Theology. In May 2008 Dan became a licensed minister. March 2009 Dan and Jan went into full-time ministry as Associate Pastors at Glad Tidings Church in Hanford, CA. After being Ordained in April 2011 Dan realized that God had called him to pastor a church. In November 2013 God opened the door to become the Senior Pastor here at Kailua Assembly of God. Dan and Jan’s greatest passion in ministry is for marriages.

  • Preston Kauwe

    Worship Leader

    Preston was born and raised in Hawaii starting in the year of 1996. He has attended church his whole life, but officially started his relationship with God in the beginning of his 8th grade year. Eventually, he felt God calling him to play music, and ever since that calling, his passion has been music. He is the leader of his own band under the name of “Scarlet Cord.” After moving from church to church, he ended up at Kailua Assembly of God. He continues to play music for Kailua Assembly of God (and other churches), as well as his band, and he is looking to pursue music as a career.

  • Gail Perry

    office manager

    Gail was born and raised in Virginia. Since marrying her husband, William “Stan”, in 1991, her journey in life has become that of a missionary within the United States as she supports her husband who is presently serving in the United States Coast Guard. They have one adult son, Cameron, and he is currently pursuing his chosen path of music on the mainland.

     

    Gail has been blessed with the opportunity to work and volunteer within many different areas of ministry and counseling through their journeys. Their hope to be stationed in Hawaii was 27 years in God’s time, and it matches just perfectly with Stan’s goal to retire at 30 years living in paradise.
