Meet The Staff
These are the ministers serving at Hope Chapel Okinawa.
Pastor John Bacigalupo
Pastor B. is the senior pastor and founder of Hope Chapel Okinawa. He loves a good joke and preaches about giving less than 52 times a year!
Pastor Shawn Shavers
Pastor Shawn is an associate minister who likes hitting the streets with the gospel and developing preaching and teaching series that last longer than Methuselah lived!
Pastor Miyako Shavers
Pastor Miyako, “Miyako-sensei”, is an associate minister who oversees our Japanese members. We all try to help keep Miyako-sensei from boredom since, with only 10 kids on her hands, she tends to have too much free time.
Pastor Cary Oshiro
Pastor Cary is an associate minister and oversees the men’s ministry. He will probably invite you to play golf, so have your excuses ready, if you need one.
Pastor Chisako Oshiro
Pastor Chisako is an associate minister who is in charge of our translators/interpreters. She has some serious connections, so she can probably help you rub elbows with the people you might need to. But, keep on her good side. Like I say, she knows people!
