Leadership

Pastors & Staff

Our Senior Pastors

Pastors Lorin and Patty Carmichael are the Senior Pastors of Sure Foundation Puna.  They are not only passionate about their church and community, but about life and each other! Originally from O'ahu, Hawai'i, they relocated to the Big Island in 1983. They eventually felt God's leading to start a church in the Puna district, and in 1987 Sure Foundation began.  They continue to lead along with a great team, reaching Puna and beyond.

Meet the team.
