Why $12,000 per month?
Hawaii is not the cheapest place to start a church. In fact, it is almost double the U.S. average for cost of living (see here). To give you an understanding, two recent church planters on the island of Oahu raised about $10,000 per month. The highest cost is rent. For example, one of those church planters had to spend $4,000 per month to rent out a theater for 3 hours each Sunday and another $3,000 for personal housing.
