Welcome to Huialoha church in Kaupo, Maui, Hawaii. Wedged between the looming, leeward shoulder of Haleakala volcano and the borderless blue ocean, the rural district
of Kaupo is East Maui’s version of the Wild West.

Since 1859, Huialoha Congregational Church has stood sentry on this wind-whipped coastline, a reminder of humankind’s nobler qualities: self-sacrifice, hospitality,
and simple joy.

Battered by time and the elements, this little church on the edge of nowhere might have become a lost cause - had so many people not found themselves here.
