New Supervisor Announced for Hawaii District


Fernando Castillo Jr. has been appointed district supervisor of the Hawaii District beginning January 1, 2013.

Published September 24, 2012

By The Foursquare Church

Foursquare President Glenn C. Burris Jr., General Supervisor Tammy Dunahoo and the board of directors are pleased to announce that Rev. Fernando Castillo Jr. has been appointed district supervisor of the Hawaii District. He will complete the unexpired term of Supervisor Alex Pacheco, who has served the district with distinction. Fernando’s term will begin January 1, 2013.

Fernando was born and raised in Bogota, Colombia. He received a degree in architecture in 1997 before moving to the United States to attend Life Pacific College, where he received his degree in 2001. In 1999 he married Karen Larson, who is the daughter of former Foursquare missionaries to Colombia, Daniel and Heli Larson. Fernando and Karen have two sons: David (9) and Daniel (11).

After serving two years as youth pastors at the Azusa Foursquare Church in Southern California, the Castillos moved to Honolulu in 2002 to serve as youth pastors at New Hope Oahu under Pastor Wayne Cordeiro.

In 2004, the Castillos and a small group of likeminded leaders planted New Hope Diamond Head (Diamond Head Foursquare Church) in Honolulu. Today, the church has two campuses and more than 1,200 people in weekly attendance. In keeping with the pastor’s passion for missions, New Hope Diamond Head has ongoing ministry in India, Haiti, Japan and Taiwan.

Affirming Fernando’s selection, Tammy Dunahoo says: “I was very pleased with the characteristics New Hope Diamond Head staff and council attributed to Fernando, his family and his leadership. It seems as if God has been preparing the family, church and district for this season.”

“We are honored to be counted as faithful to serve in this capacity,” Fernando says of this new assignment. “Furthermore, we are humbled by both God’s favor and our peers’ support during this season. It’s a privilege to continue watering the seeds of fruitful ministry that Pastors Wayne Cordeiro, Ralph Moore and Alex Pacheco have planted and nurtured so diligently in Hawaii.”

Please pray for the Hawaii District, and for the Castillo and Pacheco families as this transition occurs.
