Why $13,000 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 had to raise 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 couple thousand for housing.
