We labor in much harmony, although our view do not exactly correspond. He is the same ardent, rash, indefatigable man as when you knew him in the Seminary but even more inclined to extremes. This is owing partly to the temper of the times. Like all persons of his temperament, he has stong prejudices - strong likes and dislikes - but with all his foibles he has a warm heart and great zeal for what he regards truth and righteousness. From American Missionary, Vol. I, No. 5, New York, March 1847 published by the American Missionary Association Letters from Rev. J.S.

A shed was built on Kahale's land for the first service on August 19, 1832. From the original 7, it swelled to more than 3,000 in less than two years. This led to the erection of a new building. All that reamins of that building is the retaining rock wall bordering High Street. 10) 1876 the present building was completed under the supervision of Edward Bailey. The bell tower was added in 1884 and the clock was donated by the W. H.

The present pastor is Kaleo Waiau. Pookela Church 13) Pookela means "foremost, superior". 14) Rev. Jonathan C. Green came to the Hawaiian Islands in 1828. 15) In 1842 he was invited by Chief Kiha of Makawao to minister to the people in the district.

In 1856 Pookela had 722 members, Keokea 172 and Huelo 159. 18) Father green not only preached, he built houses and "built lives". 19) He encouraged the people to grow wheat and they were soon exporting this to Caloifornia. 20) He held classes for teachers and became a school and land agent for the government. He served the Independent Pookela Church until his health failed in 1877. He died in 1878 at age 87. 21) Rev. Vernon G.S. Tom, a Fuller Theological Seminary, has been the pastor since 1984. From Unknown Booklet seen at the Pookela Church An Historical Perspective 1) In these centers, as once in the monastic sanctuaries of earliest medival Europe, Christian learning was preserved and fostered, inventions made and applied, and missionary effort was furthered by practical as well as Biblical instructin. In Honolulu Hiram Bingham soon had a printing press going; at Makawao Jonathan Green taught agriculture and introduced wheat; at Waikea Brother Goodrich began manufacture of molasses and sugar "from a mill of his own invention"; on the Island of Hawaii J. D. Paris taught carpentry and stonemasonry... The Architectural Record 2) Still for 1833-1834 the Wailuku Station Report was listing hundreds of people at each service, but only eleven members, including two admitted that year. By this time all the mother missions had built sizable structures to accomodate the crowds, sometimes several, one after the other. Most of them survive only in contemporary drawings and photographs, but the Waioli meeting house built on Kauai 1847-1841 is extant in restored form. The First Permanent Churches 3) No matter how commodious their first meeting houses turned out to be, the missionaries at once began planning something more ambitious, more permanent. There was practical justification: the "Great Awakening" of 1837-40 had sent a wave of religious enthusiasm spreading from Hilo over all the Islands that filled churches to overflowing with actual members - at Wailuku, for example, where in 1833-34 eleven members were reported, 487 appeared on the 1838-1839 rolls, 200 of them added in that year alone. But the real incentinve was to make a persuasive statement. 4) Sometime stones came from unmortared stone platforms of heiaus abandoned during the religious revolution that preceded the missionaries' arrival, or immediately thereafter - this occurred for example at Wanaanalua church at Hana on Maui... 5) Proportions could be determined, too, by wooden windows and door frames prefabricated complete with glass in New England, and shipped out as part of the missionary effort of New England congregations - as, for example, in the Waihee church on Maui. 6) By the 1860's more self-consiously ornamental elements began to appear - as, for example the sandstone framings which contrasted handsomely with fieldstone on the little Waikapu church of 1875. 7) Conversely, a church at this stage might self-consciously be left plain as possible, to make an ideological statement. Such seems to have been the case at Pookela church on Maui, which remained nothing but a simple gable-roofed rectangle to express its founder's adherence to principle; missionary Jonathan Greene had split with the American Board of Commissioners for Foreign Missions to protest their continuing to accept donations from churches in slave-holding states. Maui 8) 1823 Lahaina, church of frail material 1828 Lahaina, stone Wainee church, 104' x 50', now gone 9) The churches in Lahaina, Wailuku, and Hana spawned dozens of outstations throughout Maui, many of which are still in use. 10) However, a number have disappeared. Station and church reports indicate the presence or construction of churches at: Haiku, Honokohau, Honouaula, Kaanapali, Kelepolepo, and Wailua. Others are now abandoned ruins. 10) Hana, Wananalua Church, started 1842, completed 1848, 100' x 40', this is the present building). Daniel Conde, first missionary there reported that when he arrived there was a large thatched house of worship, 130' x 30', stone. A year later in 1838 he organized its first church and built a thatched structure. The roof was rethatched in 1851 after a Kone storm. The church name means "Double Prophecy." 11) Huelo, Kaulanapueo Church, dedicated 1854, 60' x 30', stone, a mission of Pookela. 12) Kahana, completed 1855 of fieldstone, 60' x 20', fieldstone. Only small wall remains. 13) Kanaio. Preaching started about 1861. Stone. Restored in 1987. 14) Kaupo, Hui Aloha Church, built ca. 1857, 52' x 27', plastered stone. Restored in 1978. Name means "Gathering of Love." 15) Keanae, Lanakila Ihiihi O Iehova Ona Kaua Church, started 1857, completed in 1863, 60'x 36', fieldstone, restored in 1969. Name means "Sacredness, Success of Jehovah, the Son of God." 16) Kihei, started ca. 1843, completed 1852, 60' x 33', stone, under the direction of David Malo. After his death in 1853 the congregation dispersed. 1976 the community stabilized the remains, adding a cement floor and a concrete finish to the top of the reamining walls. 17) Kipahulu, Palapala Hoomau Church, work already in progress in 1857, completed in 1862, 52' x 26', stone.

It was abandoned about 1930. Renewed interrest about 1960 lead to clearing the site for outdoor worship. 23) Waihee Church, outstation of Wailuku, started 1848, and completed by 1852, 60' x 33', stone. From Maui News Hawaiian Mission Sesquicentennial Edition 11 Apr 1970, p.8, "Hawaiians Kept Their Promise" 1) The early history of Pookela Church is also the account of a remarkable man, the Rev. Jonathan S. Green. 2) He arrived in the Sandwich Islands in 1828 at the age of 32 following his graduation from Andover Theological Seminary. He came in the third group of missionaries sent by the American Board of Foreign Missions. 3) He was assigned to Lahaina in 1830-31, spent a short time in Hilo and in August 1832 began working in Wailuku. 4) While in Wailuku for 11 years he translated 4 books of the Bible, wrote a textbook on Church History (in Hawaiian), served as pastor, preacher, teacher, and doctor. The last 6 years were dedicated largely to establishing a Female Boarding School. 5) In 1842 he, as an ardent abolitionist, asked to be relieved of his connection with the American Board when they adopted a tolerant stand on slavery. Two other missionary families also left the Board. 6) In 1842 Chief Kiha of Makawao asked him to minister to the people of his district. He and a number of other Hawaiians promised to build him a new grass house and to do all in their power to secure his support. 7) He took up residence in Makawao on February 7, 1843 and the church was organized some time later. A stone church building was constructed a few years later. The original stone walls and ohia rafters still form the structure for the present day Pookela Church. 8) He later held church services and anti-slavery meetings for the small English-speaking community, which later developed into the Makawao Foreign Church, now the Makawao Union Church. 9) He made regular visits to out stations in Keokea, Huelo, and Kalepolepo. 10) Church membership in Makawao grew rapidly, reaching a high in 1856, three years after his arrival. At this time Pookela has 722 members, Keokea 172, and Huelo 159. 11) He assisted the people in agriculture and introduced wheat into the district, exporting some to the gold-seeking California. He was the secretary, for many years, of an agricultural society embracing Kula, Makawao, and Hamakuapoko. 12) He served as school treasurer for the Makawao District for many years. 13) He became a land agent for King Kamehameha III and in time sold nearly 2,000 acres for the government, with the hope that it would enable the Hawaiians in his parish to become a more stable and progressive people. 14) He took the oath of allegiance to the Hawaiian Government and became a citizen of the Sandwich Islands to identify more closely with his people. 15) His wife, Theodosia died in 1859, and he took his only furlough with his daughter in 1860. He remarried and returend in 1861 with his wife, Asaneth, to the joyful welcome of over 800 Hawaiian disciples. 16) He served Pookela Church and the outstations with energy and devoltion until his health failed in 1877. After his death in 1878, his wife, and later his daughters Laura and Mary continued to advise the church. From Pookela Church, A Brief History 1843-1982 Olinda Road, Makawao, Maui, Hawaii 1) This is the same as published in the Maui News 11 April 1970. From Maui News Hawaiian Mission Sesquicentennial Edition 11 Apr 1970, p.8, "And A Blessing For Makawao And Maui." 1) The history of Makawao Union Church is a record of people and events during more than 100 years. It starts with the record of religious meetings held in Pookela, Makawao by Jonathan Smith Green in 1861. 2) He and his wife, Theodosia to the Islands in March 1828 with the Third Company of Missionaries from Boston under the direction of the American Board of Foreign Missions. 3) In 1843 he severed his employment with the Board and accepted the invitation of the Hawaiians in Makawao to be their their permanent pastor. 4) The stone building they erected at Pookela in 1850 still stands. 5) Theodosia died in 1859. Father Green took a furlough to the mainland. In 1861 he returned with his second wife, Asenath. 6) He was soon re-established at Pookela. He also served a second church which had been organized, in his absence, by Father C.B. Andrews, who had come to the Islands in 1844. 7) Andrews started Mauna Olu Girl's School. 8) Andrews applied for and received from Lot Kamehameh the first charter for Makawao Church. The charter was written to N.F. Sayer, Gustavus M. Spencer, and Thomas H. Hobron and their successors. The first deed issued for Makawao Church by the future King Kamehameha V was dated April 20, 1861. 9) The first church was built at the present location of Makawao cemetery, the earliest graves being in the church yard. The building was dedicated in March 1861 and used until 1889, and remained on this site until 1900. 10) Amoung the first members of Makawao Church were Henry Perrine Baldwin and his wife Emily (Alexander) who lived in a home referred to by the family as "Sunnyside." Baldwin played the church organ for the regular services. 11) As a partner with his brother-in-law, Samuel Alexander, Baldwin began sugar cane growing and saw the need for more water in Makawao. During a period of extreme draught he knelt and prayed and promised God that if the plantaion were saved he would always return a portion of his earnings for God's work. The rains came and Baldwin kept his promise, helping churches and schools on Maui, and the settlement at Kalaupapa, Molokai. 12) In 1876 Baldwin joined with Father Green, Spencer, and Rev. James Alexander to apply for a second church charter under the name of "The Foreign Religious Society of Makawao." Alexander was hired to help carry the activities of the church prior to Father Green's death on January 5, 1878 at age 82. 13) 1878-1885 Rev. Rouse was pastor. 14) Rev. Lounsberry was pastor for 1 year 15) 1886-1893 Rev. T. H. Gullick was pastor 16) 1889 a new wood framed church was built in upper Paia and dedicated on March 10, 1889. It was built on the original Paliuli Mill foundation. The Mill had been closed since 1880. Baldwin donated the land. 17) The Makawao Religious society members, with Baldwin and hits family built a new church at Haiku, formed the first "aldies Aid Society" and erected the "Paia Community House" adjacent to the church. 18) 1894-1921 Revs. Edward G. Beckwith, William Rice, B. V. Bazata, E. B. Turner, R. B. Dodge, and A. Craig Bowdish served as pastors. 19) 1911 Henry Perrine Baldwin died and his heirs decided to erect a new church in his memory. 20) 1917 the new stone church was dedicated on September 2 on the same location. William H. Dickey, a local architect designed it. 21) 1921-1925 Rev. Augustine Jones was pastor. 22) Rev. W. E. Rowan (Methodist from Canada) then served 20 years. 23) 1938 earthquake didn't damage the church but shook the Community House off it's foundation. 24) 1945-1970 Revs. C.D. Imbrie, Augustus H. Griffing, Dr. William Fry, Dr. Hudson Pitman, B. Ross Cleeland, Dean Goebel, Lawrence Sellars and Neil Swanson served as pastors. From Maui News Hawaiian Mission Sesquicentennial Edition 11 Apr 1970, p.8, "From Girl's Seminary To 4-Year College" 1) Most of the details of Mauna Olu's early years have been preserved in a booklet titled "The story of Maunaolu Seminary." written in 1929 by Charlotte L. Turner, a former teacher their. 2) In 1861 Rev. and Mrs. C.B. Andrews purchased a piece of land above Makawao, near Pookela Church and established a "Home School" for Hawaiian girls. Mrs. Andrews was continually in ill health and when she died in 1862, other missionaries came to help. 3) 1862 Among those who came to help were Rev. and Mrs. Porter Green and his sister Miss Mary Green. She was so impressed with the school's setting that she began writing "Maunaolu" (meaning "pleasant mountain") on her letter heads. Informally the term Maunaolou Seminary became more commonly used than Home School. 4) 1869 the Home School was destroyed by fire. 5) Andrews return to the United States, married his first wife's sister, and returned to Maui to rebuild. 6) 1871 a new 2 story building was built, but lacked furniture. The staff was Andrews, his wife, and a new teacher Miss Helen Carpenter, a graduate of Mt. Holyoke (Mass.) Female Seminary. 7) 1874 Miss Carpenter suceeded Andrews as principal. Wanting to model the school after her alma mater she changed the name to East Maui Female Seminary. But the name didn't stick. 8) 1879 nearly all the students were taken home due to a measles epidemic. 9) 1881 the school was quarantined due to small pox. 10) 1883 enrollment was up to 100. 11) 1885 Miss Carpenter resigned due to poor health returning to the mainland. 12) 1887 Miss Carpenter returned and remained as principal until 1891. 13) 1898 Maunaolu again was destoyed by fire. The principal was Miss Mary Alexander who away attending a dinner in Wailuku. She found new quarters at the old Haleakala Government School. 14) 1900 A new large building was built at Sunnyside in upper Paia. Henry Perrine Baldwin gave the money for the construction. It was suggested to name it "Baldwin Hall" but he insisted that he loved the old name of Maunaolu. The Hawaiians call this place puu Makani (Windy Hill). 15) 1905 had 75 students ages 7 to 12. The first graduation was this year with 6 graduates. 16) Little is written about the school between 1929 and 1942 when the military took over the building for use as a hospital during WWII. After the war the buildings stood vacant. 17) 1950 the Hawaiian Evangelical Association opened Maunaolu as a junior college. 18) 1953 K.C. Leebrick became president and in 1955 he sought it's independence. He served as president until 1967. 19) The Dr. Cummins E. Speakman expanded it and is seeking accreditation as a four-year college of liberal arts. The name has changed to Mauna Olu. From Hawaii 1900 Soundex G650 Many Green's so only listed if Head b.
