Did churches underpay the state?

Members of New Hope Ministries are speaking up after their church is accused of underpaying to use public school facilities.

Out of five churches being sued, three are New Hope ministries: New Hope Oahu, Hawaii Kai, and Kapolei.


The lawsuit claims the churches filed false statements, under-representing their use of state facilities. New Hope used Farrington High School’s auditorium for its weekend services before moving to its Sand Island location after the auditorium’s roof caved in last fall. The lawsuit accuses the churches of not paying $5.6 million to the state.
