Meet our Staff

Rev. Dr. Gordon Marchant

Pastor Gordon and Aleta Marchant have enjoyed serving the Lord in Hawaii for many years. In August 2023, the wonderful people of Makawao Union Church confirmed God’s calling and the Marchants relocated from Oahu to Maui to begin their ministry.

Gordon grew up in a small community northwest of Calgary, Canada. The “cowboy” culture of Makawao is both familiar and welcoming. Aleta was born in Winnipeg and was raised in British Columbia. To all our Canadian tourists coming to Maui, you had better stop for a visit!

In 2007, Pastor Gordon received his Doctor of Ministry with a multiethnic speciality from Wesley Theological Seminary in Washington, D.C. His project paper was entitled: “Cross-cultural Humor as God’s Gift for Church Growth in North America.”

Aleta and Gordon are so glad to have had the privilege of providing pastoral care to congregations throughout North America: Honolulu, Pearl City, McLean, Los Angeles, Reseda, Calgary, and Maidstone.

Please take time to drop by for a visit so that we can talk story! We very much want to be available to our ohana here on Maui.
