YWAM-Osterhus Family


Tom and Ohokulani (Hoku), together with their sons, Timothy and Elias, live on the beautiful island of Maui.

Ohokulani was raised on the nearby Hawaiian island of Molokai. She has been serving with YWAM off and on since 1990. She has completed the Introduction to Biblical Counseling School and the School of Biblical Studies through the University of the Nations.

Tom is originally from Minnesota and his ministry focus has been primarily missions and dealing with apologetics and worldview issues. Tom and Ohokulani’s ministry experience has been mainly missions work within YWAM. Tom is currently the director of Youth With A Mission-Maui and a distance education instructor for International Biblical Online Leadership Training (IBOLT) in Edmonton, Alberta.

Timmy is in 12th grade. For the last 3 years he has been active on his school’s wrestling team. He turned 17 on September 15. Elias is 10 years old and loves to run, jump, climb, ride his bike and listen to music of almost any kind. He loves to read books about science; just like his older brother did at that age.

Ministry of YWAM Maui

Each year we send out 10 or so outreach teams. While we take precautions and try to be aware of potential dangers, there are numerous travel alerts globally and a couple of them affect the nations that we often minister in.Also, please pray for Lord’s hand to be upon our training programs and that the students would come to a deeper walk with Jesus and to be equipped to make God known more effectively.
