About Send Hope International

Send Hope International Founder
Senior Pastor – Inspire Church

Send Hope International is non-profit organization that helps support church planters and missionaries around the world. Our desire is to not only partner financially, but also relationally, to provide the resources and encouragement they need to help fulfill the calling that God has on their lives.

Send Hope International was founded by Pastor Mike Kai, of Inspire Church in Hawaii. In 2007, Mike felt the Lord prompting him to start a non-profit organization that would bring financial and moral support to church planters and missionaries that were on his heart; mainly those who were already working in Australia, Japan and Thailand. After several years of traveling through these places, he began to discover that the Lord gave him a unique opportunity through the relationships with Pastors who were serving in local congregations. As a result, Send Hope International was birthed in 2008. Since then, SHI has supported missionaries and church planters in the Philippines, Spain, New Zealand, Papa New Guinea, Australia, Peru, Japan, Thailand, Costa Rica, Haiti, Kazakhstan, Nepal, Canada, and the United States.
